Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 142791
RLIMIT_CPU/SIGXCPU should be per-process, not per-thread
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:56 EST
Description of problem:
RLIMIT_CPU applies to individual thread CPU use, but POSIX says it should apply
to aggregate CPU use by the whole process.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Tracking bug for upstream work.
Created attachment 108492 [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.
