Subject: [PATCH v3 03/12] grep: fix racy calls in grep_objects()
Date: Wed, 15 Jan 2020 23:39:51 -0300
Message-ID: <5295c892ee12eb4f8a2fab2cd7e419dc04b18203.1579141989.git.matheus.bernardino@usp.br> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <cover.1579141989.git.matheus.bernardino@usp.br>

deref_tag() calls is_promisor_object() and parse_object(), both of which
perform lazy initializations and other thread-unsafe operations. If it
was only called by grep_objects() this wouldn't be a problem as the
latter is only executed by the main thread. However, deref_tag() is also
present in read_object_file()'s call stack. So calling deref_tag() in
grep_objects() without acquiring the grep_read_mutex may incur in a race
condition with object reading operations (such as the ones internally
performed by fill_textconv(), called at fill_textconv_grep()). The same
problem happens with the call to gitmodules_config_oid() which also has
parse_object() in its call stack. Fix that protecting both calls with
the said grep_read_mutex.
