Comment 1 krishnan parthasarathi 2012-01-20 03:38:27 EST
From the backtrace we can see that the illegal free comes from ibv_fork_init, which is part of libibverbs. glusterd doesn't pass any information that can influence the way ibv_fork_init did its initialisation. So closing this is "NOT A BUG", since it is not an issue with glusterd ("innocent until proven guilty").
The unfortunate side-effect is that we cannot run tests using gluster compiled with libefence, when tranport underneath is rdma.
