2018-09-12make arch __set_thread_area backends hiddenRich Felker-0/+1
this is not a public interface, and does not even necessarily match the syscall on all archs that have a syscall by that name. on archs where it's implemented in C, no action on the source file is needed; the hidden declaration in pthread_arch.h suffices.
2018-09-12make arch __clone backends hiddenRich Felker-0/+1
these are not a public interface and are not intended to be callable from anywhere but the public clone function or other places in libc.
2015-11-02use explicit __cp_cancel label in cancellable syscall asm for all archsRich Felker-1/+3
previously, only archs that needed to do stack cleanup defined a __cp_cancel label for acting on cancellation in their syscall asm, and a default definition was provided by a weak alias to __cancel, the C function. this resulted in wrong codegen for arm on gcc versions affected by pr 68178 and possibly similar issues (like pr 66609) on other archs, and also created an inconsistency where the __cp_begin and __cp_end labels were treated as const data but __cp_cancel was treated as a function. this in turn caused incorrect code generation on archs where function pointers point to function descriptors rather than code (for now, only sh/fdpic).
2015-04-14consistently use hidden visibility for cancellable syscall internalsRich Felker-2/+8
in a few places, non-hidden symbols were referenced from asm in ways that assumed ld-time binding. while these is no semantic reason these symbols need to be hidden, fixing the references without making them hidden was going to be ugly, and hidden reduces some bloat anyway. in the asm files, .global/.hidden directives have been moved to the top to unclutter the actual code.
2014-02-09clone: make clone a wrapper around __cloneBobby Bingham-3/+0
The architecture-specific assembly versions of clone did not set errno on failure, which is inconsistent with glibc. __clone still returns the error via its return value, and clone is now a wrapper that sets errno as needed. The public clone has also been moved to src/linux, as it's not directly related to the pthreads API. __clone is called by pthread_create, which does not report errors via errno. Though not strictly necessary, it's nice to avoid clobbering errno here.

2012-05-23fix issue with longjmp out of signal handlers and cancellationRich Felker-10/+8
stale state information indicating that a thread was possibly blocked at a cancellation point could get left behind if longjmp was used to exit a signal handler that interrupted a cancellation point. to fix the issue, we throw away the state information entirely and simply compare the saved instruction pointer to a range of code addresses in the __syscall_cp_asm function. all the ugly PIC work (which becomes minimal anyway with this approach) is defered to cancellation time instead of happening at every syscall, which should improve performance too. this commit also fixes cancellation on arm, which was mildly broken (race condition, not checking cancellation flag once inside the cancellation point zone). apparently i forgot to implement that. the new arm code is untested, but appears correct; i'll test and fix it later if there are problems.

2011-09-18overhaul clone syscall wrappingRich Felker-20/+29
several things are changed. first, i have removed the old __uniclone function signature and replaced it with the "standard" linux __clone/clone signature. this was necessary to expose clone to applications anyway, and it makes it easier to port __clone to new archs, since it's now testable independently of pthread_create. secondly, i have removed all references to the ugly ldt descriptor structure (i386 only) from the c code and pthread structure. in places where it is needed, it is now created on the stack just when it's needed, in assembly code. thus, the i386 __clone function takes the desired thread pointer as its argument, rather than an ldt descriptor pointer, just like on all other sane archs. this should not affect applications since there is really no way an application can use clone with threads/tls in a way that doesn't horribly conflict with and clobber the underlying implementation's use. applications are expected to use clone only for creating actual processes, possibly with new namespace features and whatnot.
2011-06-14restore use of .type in asm, but use modern @function (vs %function)Rich Felker-0/+4
this seems to be necessary to make the linker accept the functions in a shared library (perhaps to generate PLT entries?) strictly speaking libc-internal asm should not need it. i might clean that up later.
2011-06-13remove all .size and .type directives for functions from the asmRich Felker-7/+0
these are useless and have caused problems for users trying to build with non-gnu tools like tcc's assembler.
2011-04-22fix initial stack alignment in new threads on x86_64Rich Felker-1/+1
2011-04-17fix typo in x86_64 cancellable syscall asmRich Felker-1/+1
2011-04-17fix bugs in cancellable syscall asmRich Felker-5/+6
x86_64 was just plain wrong in the cancel-flag-already-set path, and crashing. the more subtle error was not clearing the saved stack pointer before returning to c code. this could result in the signal handler misidentifying c code as the pre-syscall part of the asm, and acting on cancellation at the wrong time, and thus resource leak race conditions. also, now __cancel (in the c code) is responsible for clearing the saved sp in the already-cancelled branch. this means we have to use call rather than jmp to ensure the stack pointer in the c will never match what the asm saved.
2011-04-17fix some minor issues in cancellation handling patchRich Felker-1/+1
signals were wrongly left masked, and cancellability state was not switched to disabled, during the execution of cleanup handlers.
2011-04-17overhaul pthread cancellationRich Felker-0/+24
this patch improves the correctness, simplicity, and size of cancellation-related code. modulo any small errors, it should now be completely conformant, safe, and resource-leak free. the notion of entering and exiting cancellation-point context has been completely eliminated and replaced with alternative syscall assembly code for cancellable syscalls. the assembly is responsible for setting up execution context information (stack pointer and address of the syscall instruction) which the cancellation signal handler can use to determine whether the interrupted code was in a cancellable state. these changes eliminate race conditions in the previous generation of cancellation handling code (whereby a cancellation request received just prior to the syscall would not be processed, leaving the syscall to block, potentially indefinitely), and remedy an issue where non-cancellable syscalls made from signal handlers became cancellable if the signal handler interrupted a cancellation point. x86_64 asm is untested and may need a second try to get it right.
2011-04-06consistency: change all remaining syscalls to use SYS_ rather than __NR_ prefixRich Felker-2/+2
2011-02-19race condition fix: block all signals before decrementing thread countRich Felker-13/+0
the existence of a (kernelspace) thread must never have observable effects after the thread count is decremented. if signals are not blocked, it could end up handling the signal for rsyscall and contributing towards the count of threads which have changed ids, causing a thread to be missed. this could lead to one thread retaining unwanted privilege level. this change may also address other subtle race conditions in application code that uses signals.
2011-02-16patch by njk, simplifies thread register initialization for x86_64Rich Felker-4/+0
It's not necessary to save any registers on the stack across syscall in x86_64 __set_thread_area. Don't waste cycles or bytes on it.
