Commit Message

Mathieu Desnoyers Sept. 26, 2022, 3:01 p.m. UTC
Applications using signalfd depend on signals being blocked in all
threads of the process, otherwise threads with unblocked signals
can receive them and starve the signalfd.

While some threads in URCU do block signals (e.g. workqueue
worker for rculfhash), the call_rcu, defer_rcu, and rculfhash
partition_resize_helper threads do not.

Always block all signals before creating threads, and only unblock
SIGRCU when registering a urcu-signal thread. Restore the SIGRCU
signal to its pre-registration blocked state on unregistration.

For rculfhash, cds_lfht_worker_init can be removed, because its only
effect is to block all signals except SIGRCU. Blocking all signals is
already done by the workqueue code, and unbloking SIGRCU is now done by
the urcu signal flavor thread regisration.
