Re: Applied: PATCH for thread-safe C++ static local initialization

Jason Merrill wrote:
Here's the patch I'm applying.  The major change in this version is that
instead of emulating a recursive mutex in the libsupc++ code, I added
recursive mutex support to gthr.  I implemented it for most of the thread
targets; I didn't implement it for rtems, though, which relies on OS hooks.
I suppose I could implement it there in terms of the current hooks, but
thought I'd leave that decision to the rtems folks (hi, Joel!).  I tried to
test on solaris and dce threads, but failed for various reasons; I would
appreciate testing and feedback on all non-posix thread targets.

Sorry for the delay. I took some time off.

If I understand the intent, this looks easy for RTEMS.  I have attached
a modified gthr-rtems.h (not compiled yet) which should come close to
making the RTEMS GCC part right.

The second step requires some information on your intended use of this
mutex.  RTEMS allows pretty fine grained control over mutex attributes.
I just to make sure we have the right attributes on the mutexes.

Currently, the regular gcc mutex uses priority blocking and
priority inheritance protocol when there is contention and blocking.
But it does not allow nesting.

 + Is this really the right mutex attributes for GCC?
 + Do you just want to use the same attributes plus allow nesting on
   (recursive locking) on this new type of mutex?
 + Would it be wrong to allow nesting on the older type of mutex
   and just make the two types equivalent?

Also what GCC major/minor version should be test to see if
this support is to be included in our adapter file.
