Re: CVS commit: src/tests/lib/libc/gen (address alignment)

XXX I would appreciate if someone could test it under a real amd64 host with an up-to-date kernel, so I can reasonably assume that the culprit is Virtual Box and not our amd64 port (my test machine being off line I cannot do it myself). Results from other arches would be a plus too.

I just updated one of my machines (running a bulldozer FX-8150) to -current from an hour ago (with the most up-to-date rev of psl.h) and ran atf-run on the libc/gen tests. The machine hung solid at this point:

        t_siginfo (28/32): 8 test cases
            sigalarm: [1.006950s] Passed.

and I am no longer able to telnet into the box from elsewhere. I am not physically at the machine, so I cannot tell if it has dropped into ddb.

The machine did not drop into ddb, it simply rebooted. Unfortunately it did not leave a core dump behind, so I don't have much to look at just yet. When I get home later today, I will try to get more info.

BTW, this occurred while running the ATF test from a non-privileged user, so if there's a bug lurking in these recent changes, it could be considered to be a security vulnerability - non-priv user should not be able to crash the box...
