I am improving signaling code in the NetBSD kernel, covering corner cases with regression tests, and improving the documentation. I've been working at the level of sytems calls (syscalls): forking, threading, handling these with GDB, and tracing syscalls. Some work happens behind the scenes as I support the work of Michal Gorny on LLDB/ptrace features. http://blog.netbsd.org/tnf/entry/improvements_in_forking_threading_and Plan for the next milestone I will visit BSDCan this month to speak about NVMM and HAXM. I will resume my work on forking and threading bugs after the conference. The lwp_exit() and wait() race will be prioritized as it affects most current users. After resolving this problem, I will be back to posix_spawn(2), followed by addressing vfork(2) races. This work was sponsored by The NetBSD Foundation.
