Re: [dm-devel] [PATCH 2/3] set pthread stack size to at least PTHREAD_STACK_MIN



Benjamin Marzinski wrote:
Attempting to set the stacksize of a pthread to below
PTHREAD_STACK_MIN causes pthread_attr_setstacksize() to fail, which
means that the thread will use the default stack size.  This fix
makes sure that multipathd never requests a stack size less than
PTHREAD_STACK_MIN.

Hmm. I don't quite agree. I run into the same problem, but having
discovered that we're not checking any return values at all here
we should rather do the prudent thing and check them once and for all.

I've chosen this approach:

This way we'll at least be notified if something goes wrong in
the future. We shouldn't make the same mistake again and
ignore error codes which don't happen to trigger now.

If agreed I'll post the full patch here.

Cheers,

Hannes
