Description Jan Beich freebsd_committer 2019-06-07 23:09:32 UTC
AC_CHECK_FUNCS() doesn't check declaration, only library symbol. For one, FreeBSD never had pthread_getname_np() but added a similar function in base r337983.
See contrib/compiler-rt/lib/sanitizer_common/sanitizer_common_interceptors.inc

$ cat >a.c
char pthread_getname_np();

int main()
	return 0;

$ cc a.c -fsanitize=address
$ cc a.c
ld: error: undefined symbol: pthread_getname_np

Comment 1 Mark Johnston freebsd_committer 2020-06-03 15:19:10 UTC
I suspect it would be simplest to just make pthread_(get|set)name_np() aliases of pthread_(get|set)_name_np().  Linux and NetBSD use the former, FreeBSD and OpenBSD use the latter.

We could just teach compiler-rt to intercept pthread_get_name_np(), but it's a silly compatibility wart that will bite over and over I'm sure.

  Add pthread_getname_np() and pthread_setname_np() aliases

  for pthread_get_name_np() and pthread_set_name_np(), to be
  compatible with Linux.
