Description
Note: this fix failed on 6u and was backed out. See comments. The issue persists in 6u but can not be resolved with present build environment.
Comments
See 8025579. The fix did not work on Linux 2.6 kernel due to the VM being built on Linux 2.4 - a mismatch between the old LinuxThreads pthreads implementation and the newer NPTL pthreads implementation. As a result the fix was backed out under 8025579. This issue can not be resolved in JDK 6 as long as we build on Linux 2.4.
