Description Nils Philippsen 2001-03-29 14:33:43 UTC
As of db2-2.4.14-4 (or -5), db2 isn't built in a way that it uses
spinlocks (to be thread-safe). The attached patch fixes this problem (but
only on Intel IA32, other platforms will have to be treated individually).

Is it still a problem in current db4?

I honestly don't know as I haven't used Berkeley DB by myself in years. Feel
free to close this one.
