Description Jonathan Lebon 2017-07-19 12:27:48 EDT
Description of problem:

rpm-ostree gets hung while waiting for repos to be updated. Inspecting the backtrace reveals that libnss is trying to lock a mutex which is already locked:

The issue is that the thread that locked it is that very same thread, resulting in a deadlock. One can poke around pthread internals to verify this (see also https://stackoverflow.com/a/3491304/308136):

(gdb) frame 2
#2  0x00007f0fc1fc51b9 in PR_Lock (lock=0x7f0fb45e32c0) at ../../../nspr/pr/src/pthreads/ptsynch.c:177
177         rv = pthread_mutex_lock(&lock->mutex);
(gdb) print lock->mutex.__data.__owner
$6 = 9061
(gdb) thread find 9061
Thread 4 has target id 'LWP 9061'
(gdb) thread
[Current thread is 4 (LWP 9061)]

I'm opening this against nss since it owns most of that backtrace. It may be that the issue is in nspr or libcurl. Let me know if so.

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

# rpm -q rpm-ostree librepo libcurl nss nspr

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm-ostree install wget

Actual results:


Expected results:

Doesn't hang.

Additional info:

I can upload a core file somewhere if required.
