I've uploaded the files
The changes from 0.2 are minimal. Mainly new test cases, one syntax
error fixed, and some more cleanups. Most important a fix to the sem_*
functions which is only visible with higher optimization levels. I'm
now maintaining a ChangeLog so you can follow the changes.
Most of the new tests will never work on LinuxThreads. They all test
POSIX functionality which cannot be implemented in the old code. It's a
good sign that no code changes were necessary to make them work. All
you need is a recent kernel (2.5.41 is out; don't use earlier versions).
A propos tests: I'd really like to use one of the tests (tst-signal3) as
another benchmark. But I failed to do measurements with NGPT. I must
be too stupid. The functionality used is clearly OK according to POSIX
so NGPT should be able to run it. I tried version 2.0.2. If somebody
gets it to work with NGPT, please let me know. It can easily be
arranged to compile the code outside the glibc framework. Just make
sure that the test-skeleton.c file is found.
If you have question please use the email@example.com to post them.
