Subject: [PATCH] pidfd: Add warning if exit_state is 0 during notification
Date: Wed, 24 Jul 2019 12:48:16 -0400
Message-ID: <20190724164816.201099-1-joel@joelfernandes.org> (raw)

Previously a condition got missed where the pidfd waiters are awakened
before the exit_state gets set. This can result in a missed notification
[1] and the polling thread waiting forever.

It is fixed now, however it would be nice to avoid this kind of issue
going unnoticed in the future. So just add a warning to catch it in the
future.
