Subject: [PATCH 3/5] io-wq: only exit on fatal signals
Date: Thu,  2 Sep 2021 13:25:18 -0600	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <>

If the application uses io_uring and also relies heavily on signals
for communication, that can cause io-wq workers to spuriously exit
just because the parent has a signal pending. Just ignore signals
unless they are fatal.
