segfault in backtraces in threads on ARM
Last modified: 2012-08-07 16:20:37 EDT
Backtraces in threads on hardfp EABI systems segfault because they run off the end of the stack. This happens
because _start is marked with a .cantunwind but __clone is not. This crash gets hit frequently with java-based apps.
Test case: http://sourceware.org/ml/libc-ports/2011-08/txt00000.txt
Please could this already-upstream solution be added to glibc on F15+:
If it is acceptable as a %patch in the spec file, I'm happy to commit and build this myself.
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
glibc-2.14.1-4 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 15.
glibc-2.14.1-5 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 15.
glibc-2.14.1-5 has been pushed to the Fedora 15 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
This message is a notice that Fedora 15 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 15. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '15' have been closed as WONTFIX.
(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 15 reached end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that
version of Fedora.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
