Description Jonathan Kamens 2005-05-29 01:40:23 EDT
The man page for the sigwait function, i.e., pthread_signal(3), which is in the
glibc-devel package, claims, "The sigwait function never returns an error." 
This is simply not true, as a quick glance at
linuxthreads/sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/sigwait.c will prove.  A further glance at
kernel/signal.c in the kernel sources will give you an indication of what errors
sigwait can, in fact, return.
Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2005-05-30 05:31:15 EDT
Fixed by removing all linuxthreads man pages except those that aren't covered
in 3p section.

Will show up in next glibc build.
