Hi,
After the initial failures about 36 hours ago, retesting
yesterday and today has not produced any unexpected
failures. And I have been trying hard on lk 3.10.4 and
lk 3.10.5 .

My test program is a bit more intense than yours and can
be found in the sg3_utils beta in the News section of this
page:
http://sg.danny.cz/sg/

It is in the examples directory, two variants called
sg_tst_excl and sg_tst_excl2 . You will need a recent gcc
compiler, IOW something that can compile c++11 . gcc 4.7.3
in Ubuntu 13.04 only just manages, fedora 19 should do
better with gcc 4.8.1 . The threading is implemented using
pthreads so it should be reliable.

Typically I run multiple instances (processes) and each has
multiple threads. One instance can run '-x' which will cause
its first thread not to use O_EXCL **. All my tests currently
use O_NONBLOCK and that leads to lots of EBUSYs (sometimes
in the billions).

Doug Gilbert


** Using '-x' on two instances will cause an expected failure
so can be used as a control.
