#6315 closed bug (fixed)

[pthread] Unkillable thread

Reported by: Adek336 Owned by: axeld
Priority: normal Milestone: R1
Component: System/Kernel Version: R1/Development
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:
Has a Patch: no Platform: All


After reducing the testcase a lot, I ended up with

#include <iostream>
#include <pthread.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <unistd.h>

pthread_cond_t ptcond;
pthread_mutex_t *ptmux;

void* fun(void*)

    while (true)
    for(;;) sleep(1000);

main(int argc, char *argv[])
    pthread_mutex_t ptm;
    ptmux = &ptm;
    pthread_t pt;
    pthread_create(&pt, 0, fun, 0);
    for(;;) sleep(100);

The main thread for this process is unkillable. Interestingly, sending SIGTERM, SIGINT or SIGKILL to the other thread kills the process.

When ptm is made global, the thread is no longer unkillable.
