Description Schaich, Alonso 2013-01-12 19:30:00 UTC
SEM_WAIT(3) (and most probably also SEM_POST(3)) from the Standard C Library are aborted over here on arrival of a UNIX Signal, setting errno to 4 (EINTR).

This behavior should be mentioned in the corresponding manual pages.

seems to have been fixed by r249566, r249644

I think this was documented, at least for SEM_WAIT(3) since this commit:

I'm not sure how to tell if sem_post() can be interrupted.
