Subject: [OMPI devel] [PATCH] OSC/RDMA: Fix a potential deadlock
From: Guillaume Thouvenin (guillaume.thouvenin_at_[hidden])
Date: 2010-12-13 08:41:01


 This patch fixes a potential loss of a lock request in function
ompi_osc_rdma_passive_unlock_complete(). A new pending request is taken
from the m_locks_pending list. If m_lock_status is not equal to 0, this
new entry is then set to NULL and thus lost. This can lead to a deadlock
situation. So this patch moves the update of new_pending in its right

 This patch was tested on v1.5.
