Fix races in glibc's intl/ testsuite
Last modified: 2016-11-24 10:49:43 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #849202 +++
Description of problem:
There are races in glibc's intl/* tests. Those races can cause spurious failures in glibc's testsuite which waste engineering & QE's time to analyze.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Run the glibc testsuite with -j<n> for n > 1 repeatedly and watch for failures in tst-gettext3, tst-gettext5 or tst-codeset
Steps to Reproduce:
Occasionally one of the above-mentioned tests will fail for no apparent reason.
The tests should pass 100% of the time.
This is strictly a testsuite issue and fixing it is strictly to reduce the amount of wasted time for our engineering staff. It does not affect the delivered code in any way shape or form. Multiple approaches to fix the problem are in hand and waiting upstream approval.
Technical note added. If any revisions are required, please edit the "Technical Notes" field
accordingly. All revisions will be proofread by the Engineering Content Services team.
