SubjectKernel (2.4.0) lock-up in "write" (using PTS).
Hi all

This is somewhat odd, but I seemed to have found some kind of bug in
2.4.0. I tested the same program in 2.2.17 and it run perfectly.

So, here goes the description:

2.4.0 Kernel hangs up when I do the following stuff:

* Create a new PTY using openpty();
* Fork using forkpty. Now, the child process does this:
- Set the fd 0 line discipline to PPP;
- tries infinitely to read the standard input.

The parent process sets the line discipline of the master PTY fd to PPP
also, and then writes to it.

When I say it hangs up I really mean it. Not even the SYSRQ works.

To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-kernel" in
the body of a message to
