I recently ported a rather
complicated multi-threaded application from a MIPS core to coldfire.
The code running on the
coldfire runs for hours, then a thread will get ‘stuck’ in the pthread library
I can inspect the contents
of the mutex that was being locked with gdb, and its owner is 0! So it looks
like its waiting for a mutex that is already unlocked.
This is on a coldfire MCF54453
– basically the NCF54455 without ATA.
glibc is v2.11 form
codesourcery (i.e. from Freescale LTIB)
I tried the latest glibc from Mentor (v2.13) - same problem.
I also looked over the release notes from 2.14-2.16 for glibc and there is no mention of a problem like this.
Can anyone shed some light on this?
Also, I would like to build glibc/pthreads from the source.
Can anyone provide a build script or config.log that properly configures glibc/pthreads for coldfire?
