Subject RE: [PATCH] accept serialization
Date Wed, 13 Aug 1997 22:53:53 GMT
This patch looks good. Unfortunatly I don't have access to the systems
required to test it fully (Solaris, Irix with multi-processors) but it
applies clean and works on Linux 2. And survives the HUP of death.

I guess the includion of DEFAULT_TYPE -> DEFAULT_CONTENT_TYPE was a

I'm not clear *which* OSes are safe to use SAFE_UNSERIALISED_ACCEPT with.
Is this something we find out by trial and error? A test program for
serialising would been nice.

+1 if inclusion, on basis that if there are problems in the betas we can
take out the problem areas.

Yeah, presumably a POSIX threads like interface would be nice, either
mapped direct to OS calls (Solaris) or onto other threads layers (e.g
Linuxthreads? I don't know).

I have no problem with #including compilable code. I like the concept of
separating out the different locking implementations like this.
