Subject: [PATCH 1/2] clone3: add CLONE3_CLEAR_SIGHAND
Date: Thu, 10 Oct 2019 15:35:17 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20191010133518.5420-1-christian.brauner@ubuntu.com> (raw)

Reset all signal handlers of the child not set to SIG_IGN to SIG_DFL.
Mutually exclusive with CLONE_SIGHAND to not disturb other thread's
signal handler.

In the spirit of closer cooperation between glibc developers and kernel
developers (cf. [2]) this patchset came out of a discussion on the glibc
mailing list for improving posix_spawn() (cf. [1], [3], [4]). Kernel
support for this feature has been explicitly requested by glibc and I
see no reason not to help them with this.

The child helper process on Linux posix_spawn must ensure that no signal
handlers are enabled, so the signal disposition must be either SIG_DFL
or SIG_IGN. However, it requires a sigprocmask to obtain the current
signal mask and at least _NSIG sigaction calls to reset the signal
handlers for each posix_spawn call or complex state tracking that might
lead to data corruption in glibc. Adding this flags lets glibc avoid
these problems.

     '[...] by asking for better cooperation with the C-library projects
     in general. They should be copied on patches containing ABI
     changes, for example. I noted that there are often times where
     C-library developers wish the kernel community had done things
     differently; how could those be avoided in the future? Members of
     the audience suggested that more glibc developers should perhaps
     join the linux-api list. The other suggestion was to "copy Florian
     on everything".'
