#4157 closed bug (fixed)

File Descriptor Disconnect Handling Broken

Reported by: bonefish Owned by: axeld
Priority: high Milestone: R1/beta1
Component: System/Kernel Version: R1/Development
Keywords: vfs fd Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:
Platform: All


The disconnect handling for file descriptors has several issues:

  • Disconnected file_descriptors are leaked (put_fd() sets the ref_count to -1).
  • There are race conditions, particularly in put_fd().
  • Disconnected file descriptors can be dup()ed and copied on fork(), messing with the mangled ref_count.

Could this be the cause of what I've experienced in bug #2381 ?

Replying to emitrax:

#2381 has been closed as user error (leaking FDs). It doesn't have anything to do with this ticket.

Have there been any improvements in the interim?

Could this be moved to beta2 ?

Should be fixed with hrev49631. I'd feel better closing this bug if someone else could review the changes, though.

comment:9 by ttcoder, 7 years ago

FWIW... We were seeing this with increasing frequency back when our reference hrev was 49137 (up to once a week towards the end!), but we didn't get a single instance of this since switching over to 49856.

Sounds like this one might be fixed but should be one or two more reviews look it over and determine if we can close this one? @bonefish @mmlr can either of you weigh in on this one?

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

Seems fixed.
