Description Mark Johnston freebsd_committer 2019-01-09 04:18:44 UTC
The following program segfaults on amd64:

#include <limits.h>
#include <pthread.h>

static void *
fn(void *arg __unused)

        return (NULL);

        pthread_t t;
        pthread_attr_t attr;

        (void)pthread_attr_setstacksize(&attr, PTHREAD_STACK_MIN);

        (void)pthread_create(&t, &attr, fn, NULL);
        (void)pthread_join(t, NULL);

        return (0);

We end up crashing when the thread exits:

Comment 1 Mark Johnston freebsd_committer 2019-01-09 04:19:48 UTC
PTHREAD_STACK_MIN is 2048 on amd64.  I'm not sure it makes much sense for it to be less than the page size.
Comment 2 Conrad Meyer freebsd_committer 2020-05-21 23:11:38 UTC
Still 2048 on all x86, probably still disfunctional.
Comment 3 Paul Floyd 2020-05-22 07:29:33 UTC
(In reply to Conrad Meyer from comment #2)

Yes, this problem still exists on both i386 and amd64.
