Bug#650667: problems with reading of /proc/ (was pthread_create fails with unknown signal)
In case this helps, a 8-STABLE snapshot is being uploaded to experimental.
Thanks. It works correctly.
I believe there is a serious problem
Try even this:
dd if=/proc/version bs=1
It might be related to changes of sbuf implementation between 8 and 9.
Robert, please could you test it under pristine FreeBSD kernel.
Probably not only linprocfs, but also native FreeBSD procfs is affected.
It should get upstream attention before their 9.0 release.
