#245 assigned defect

libc063 can deadlock in heap logic.

Reported by: Steven Levine Owned by: bird
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: libc Version: 0.6
Severity: normal Keywords:


There appears to be code path that can result in the libc 0.63 heap logic getting deadlocked.

The attached SHLNotes.txt demonstrates this.

ORD1 holds the Heap lock semaphore. ORD2 appears to be looping trying to acquire the Heap lock semaphore while in a critical section.

It is not clear why ORD2 is in a critical section.

I have a process dump if more information is needed.
