Which was just an assumption and is completely wrong.

The fail is expected and the failure output of that test is totally
bonkers:

Tracing shows that clone is not failing at all:

ld-linux.so.2-26694 [060] .... 6477.924785: sys_enter: NR 120 (3d0f00, f7cda424, f7cdaba8, ff819790, f7cdaba8, f7edd000)
ld-linux.so.2-26694 [060] .... 6477.924867: sys_exit: NR 120 = 26695

...

ld-linux.so.2-26694 [191] .... 6477.985139: sys_enter: NR 120 (3d0f00, fef27424, fef27ba8, ff819790, fef27ba8, f7edd000)
ld-linux.so.2-26694 [191] .... 6477.985220: sys_exit: NR 120 = 27203

That's a total of 509 threads created. And then right after that:

ld-linux.so.2-26694 [191] .... 6477.985221: sys_enter: NR 192 (0, 801000, 0, 20022, ffffffff, 0)
ld-linux.so.2-26694 [191] .... 6477.985222: sys_exit: NR 192 = -12

mmap2 fails with ENOMEM which is not really surprising. The map length is
0x801000 which means that the already started threads have already consumed

509 * 0x801000 == 4073.99 MB == 3.9785 GB

The next mmap2 fails for a 32bit process for pretty obvious reasons and
rightfully so.

pthread_create() returns EAGAIN while the underlying problem is ENOMEM
which causes this bonkers output:

error: pthread_create for thread 253 failed: Resource temporarily unavailable

There is nothing temporarily. The process has its address space exhausted.

That test's output is anyway strange:

info: Detected CPU set size (in bits): 225
info: Maximum test CPU: 255

Interesting how it fits 256 CPUs into a cpuset with a size of 225 bits.

/me goes back to stare into iopl().

Thanks,

tglx
