The provided patch (against 2.4.43) might solve a problem with the new robust
POSIX mutex implementation of LMDB 0.9.17 on Solaris 10/11.x. On Solaris 11
slapd fails to open the database:
mdb_db_open: database "x": dbenv_open(y).
mdb_db_open: database "x" cannot be opened: z (N). Restore from backup!
backend_startup_one (type=mdb, suffix="x"): bi_db_open failed! (N)
slapd shutdown: initiated
Values of 16 (EBUSY) and 22 (EINVAL) have been observed for N.
The following notes can be found in pthread_mutexattr_setrobust(3C) (
The mutex memory must be zeroed before first initialization
of a mutex with the PTHREAD_MUTEX_ROBUST attribute. Any
thread in any process interested in the robust lock can call
pthread_mutex_init() to potentially initialize it, provided
that all such callers of pthread_mutex_init() specify the
same set of attributes in their attribute structures. In
this situation, if pthread_mutex_init() is called on a pre-
viously initialized robust mutex, it will not reinitialize
the mutex and will return the error value EBUSY. If
pthread_mutex_init() is called on a previously initialized
robust mutex, and if the caller specifies a different set of
attributes from those already in effect for the mutex, it
will not reinitialize the mutex and will return the error
Solaris 10 only provides the *_np functions (2.4.43 build/compilation fails
altogether) but the above meaning of EBUSY/EINVAL applies as well.
This patch has only be tested on Solaris 10/11.2 with Solaris Studio 12.3.
