Subject: [dpdk-dev] [PATCH] eal/windows: fix pthreads macros return values
Date: Sat, 10 Apr 2021 22:54:33 +0300
Message-ID: <20210410195433.13416-1-talshn@nvidia.com> (raw)

The macro definitions of the following pthread functions
return incorrect values from the inner function return code.

while pthread_barrier_init, pthread_barrier_destroy and
pthread_cancel return 0 in a case of success and non zero (errno) value
otherwise the shimming functions InitializeSynchronizationBarrier,
DeleteSynchronizationBarrier and TerminateThread return FALSE (0)
in a case of failure and TRUE(1) in a case of success.

This issue was undetected as none of the functions return codes was
checked until such check was added in commit 34cc55cce6b1 ("eal: fix
race in control thread creation") exposing the issue by failing
pthread_barrier_init and rte_eal_init on Windows as a result.

The fix aligned the return value of the 3 function with the expected
pthread API return values.

Fixes: e8428a9d89f1 ("eal/windows: add some basic functions and macros")
Fixes: 34cc55cce6b1 ("eal: fix race in control thread creation")
