Subject [jira] [Reopened] (STDCXX-1066) SPARCV8 requires pthread_mutex_t and pthread_cond_t to be aligned on an 8-byte boundary
Date Fri, 28 Sep 2012 22:21:07 GMT


Liviu Nicoara reopened STDCXX-1066:

    Regression: Unit Test Broken  (was: Unit Test Broken,Regression)

The issue of mutex objects alignment in STDCXX is very much real, although we (partially)
disagree on where it is present, and how it should be solved. Re-opening.

>                 URL:
>             Project: C++ Standard Library
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Thread Safety
>    Affects Versions: 4.2.1, 4.2.2, 4.2.x, 4.3.x
>         Environment: Solaris 10 Update 6 or later on SPARCV8 [32-bit]
> Defect is compiler-independent - in reality it only affects Sun Studio and GCC.
>            Reporter: Stefan Teleman
>              Labels: features, runtime, threads
>             Fix For: 4.2.2, 4.2.x, 4.3.x

> Starting with Solaris 10 Update 6, on SPARCV8, pthread_mutex_t and pthread_cond_t MUST
be aligned on an 8-byte boundary. Misaligned access will result in either SEGV or SIGBUS.
> There are numerous places in the multi-threaded version of stdcxx where pthread_mutex_t
and/or pthread_cond_t types are contained within an union, but with an enforced alignment
different than 8. All these instances must be corrected, and #ifdef-guarded for SPARCV8.
> Patches to follow shortly, this is just opening the issue.
> Warning: the patchset resolving this issue is very large, and it affects a large number
of files.
