Subject: [PATCH] jobs: Fix waitcmd busy loop
Date: Tue, 2 Jun 2020 23:46:48 +1000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20200602134648.GA17275@gondor.apana.org.au> (raw)

We need to clear gotsigchld in waitproc because it is used as
a loop conditional for the waitcmd case.  Without it waitcmd
may busy loop after a SIGCHLD.

This patch also changes gotsigchld into a volatile sig_atomic_t
to prevent compilers from optimising its accesses away.

Fixes: 6c691b3e5099 ("jobs: Only clear gotsigchld when waiting...")
