Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 142789
ITIMER_REAL should be per-process, not per thread
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:56 EST
*** This bug has been split off bug 118044 ***
Description of problem:
setitimer operates on individual threads, even under NPTL.
POSIX says it should be process-wide.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Easily seen in a MT program
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Call setitimer in one thread
2.Exit the thread
3.Process never gets the ALRMs
Tracking bug for upstream work, patches on the way.
Created attachment 108490 [details]
patch posted upstream
My changes are in Linus's tree now, hopefully in 2.6.12
Rawhide 2.6.12rcN kernels have this.
All good in FC4.
