Description Carlos O'Donell 2019-02-05 21:05:04 UTC
There are 10 missing compiler barriers in pthread_mutex_trylock.c, which can under certain circumstances, allow an optimizing compiler to reorder stores such that the kernel can observe an inconsistent state in the robust list.

Stefan Liebler's (IBM) patch:

My review:

We should backport this to rhel-7.7, since in rhel-7.6 we did a lot of work to fix other robust mutex issues for the Samba team.
