Description Richard W.M. Jones 2018-04-12 13:03:22 UTC
Description of problem:

This is similar to bug 1566516 but I believe the root cause is

To reproduce it, use this trivial plugin (same as the other bug).

#!/usr/sbin/nbdkit python3
import time
def open(readonly):
    h = {}
    return h
def close(h):
    # take some time
def get_size(h):
    return 1024
def pread(h, count, offset):
    buf = bytearray(count)
    return buf

$ ./test.py
$ telnet localhost 10809
$ killall nbdkit

The telnet command opens a connection and immediately closes
it.  The close() method takes 10 seconds to run, so it is still
running when we kill nbdkit.

The result is the stack trace at end.

The unload prevention lock is supposed to prevent this, but does not.

Comment 1 Richard W.M. Jones 2018-04-17 18:07:26 UTC
I'm going to mark the two bugs as duplicates because although
they do have a slightly different root cause, they can be fixed
by a single patch series.
