https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=239966 --- Comment #2 from Bertrand Petit <email@example.com> --- That is indeed clearer however this appears to be inaccurate. If I correctly understand this syscall, for the SIGEV_THREAD case, according to POSIX, no signal is queued when the timer fires. Instead evp->sigev_notify_function is called within the context of "a newly created thread with thread attributes specified by sigev_notify_attributes." sigev_notify_thread_id looks to play no role for this case. Note: I haven't reviewed the implementation, my comment is only based on the POSIX specification. Should we mention that sigev_notify_thread_id is not part of POSIX? Shouldn't we also mention the SIGEV_NONE case? -- You are receiving this mail because: You are on the CC list for the bug.
