Show stopper bugs for 5.0
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
here are a few problems I'd consider show stoppers, or rather which
I'd like to see fixed before branching ( cc:ed to port-powerpc since
most of this isn't really macppc-specific ):
- - Xorg vs. rtld.c - someone with more compiler clue than me needs to
look at this. We should have at least one working Xserver for 5.0. If
we can't fix Xorg we should either fix jemalloc to play nicely with
XFree86, revert to the old malloc or fix XFree86's module loader to
deal with it.
- - low memory corruption under heavy MP load. Appears to be a race and
it doesn't seem to happen with LOCKDEBUG.
- - at least on my 2x 7400 I need additional cache flushes in ld.so,
otherwise the CPU occasionally tries to use reloc entries not yet
written into memory which leads to userland crashes. Doesn't seem to
happen with 745x CPUs, others with 7400s have reported the same
problem. I'll check if it still happens, if it does we'll need to
think about a proper solution here.
Anything I forgot?
