Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 429292
fix pthread_cond_timedwait so that it uses absolute time FUTEX_WAIT command
Last modified: 2014-11-05 10:56:22 EST
Description of problem:
This one is related to 429290.
pthread_cond_timedwait is implemented using the futex syscall with the
FUTEX_WAIT command. Because the FUTEX_WAIT command takes a relative time as a
timeout it cannot be used for realtime purposes and as a consequence,
pthread_cond_timedwait can't be either.
We are asking that once 354744 is fixed, the pthread_cond_timedwait command be
fixed to take advantage of the new futex command.
The reason we are reporting the same issue in 2 different bugs is that, as a
first step, it would ok for us to only have the new futex command and not the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
