Description Richard W.M. Jones 2012-04-28 10:38:09 EDT
Description of problem:

qemu on ARM aborts early on because it uses a home-brewed
coroutine implementation which relies on working getcontext/etc
functions.  On ARM these all return ENOSYS.

glibc-ports upstream has a patch which implements enough
ucontext functionality to get qemu working.

The attached patch backports this patch to Fedora glibc
(in Rawhide).

I compiled and tested glibc with this patch, and it
fixes the initial problem with qemu on ARM (although qemu
fails a bit later on for an unrelated reason).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

glibc-2.15-32.fc18.armv7hl

Comment 2 Adam Goode 2012-04-28 15:15:51 EDT
It looks like the patch is missing all the new files?
Comment 3 Richard W.M. Jones 2012-04-28 15:32:51 EDT
That's bizarre.  Here is the actual patch:

See comment 3 for the real patch.
Comment 5 Jeff Law 2012-04-30 16:04:46 EDT
Installed into rawhide.  Do y'all need this in f17 as well?
Comment 6 Brendan Conoboy 2012-04-30 16:09:10 EDT
Please pull into F17 as well.
Comment 7 Jeff Law 2012-04-30 16:17:33 EDT
Done.  If there's a way I can test this, let me know...  My only verification was that what appear to be the right files appeared to be in the right place :-)
