We have a (eXtra Large) fix for the following bug:
8167108 inconsistent handling of SR_lock can lead to crashes
This fix adds a Safe Memory Reclamation (SMR) mechanism based on
Hazard Pointers to manage JavaThread lifecycle.
Here's a PDF for the internal wiki that we've been using to describe
and track the work on this project:
Dan has noticed that the indenting is wrong in some of the code quotes
in the PDF that are not present in the internal wiki. We don't have a
solution for that problem yet.
Here's the webrev for current JDK10 version of this fix:
This fix has been run through many rounds of JPRT and Mach5 tier[2-5]
testing, additional stress testing on Dan's Solaris X64 server, and
additional testing on Erik and Robbin's machines.
We welcome comments, suggestions and feedback.
