Subject: [PATCH] KVM: selftests: Always run vCPU thread with blocked SIG_IPI
Date: Tue, 20 Apr 2021 04:16:14 -0400
Message-ID: <20210420081614.684787-1-pbonzini@redhat.com> (raw)

The main thread could start to send SIG_IPI at any time, even before signal
blocked on vcpu thread.  Therefore, start the vcpu thread with the signal
blocked.

Without this patch, on very busy cores the dirty_log_test could fail directly
on receiving a SIGUSR1 without a handler (when vcpu runs far slower than main).
