If an application receives a
SIGSTOP signal, it is
possible for the processing of network events to be stalled in an Onload stack used by the application. This happens if the
application is holding a lock inside the stack when the application is stopped, and if
the application remains stopped for a long time, this can cause TCP connections to
A signal which terminates an application can prevent threads from exiting cleanly. Refer to Multithreaded Applications Termination for more information.
Undefined content can result when a signal handler uses the third argument
(ucontext) and if the signal is postponed by Onload.
To avoid this, use the Onload module option
safe_signals_and_exit=0 or use EF_SIGNALS_NOPOSTPONE to
prevent specific signals being postponed by Onload.
