Subject: [PATCH] unix_server: fix for infinite loop
Date: Sat, 18 Oct 2014 10:18:32 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20141018101832.GA11977@dcvr.yhbt.net> (raw)

Occasionally, killing a sink from an external process could result in an
infinite loop due to the lack of close notification from __dst_error (in
DTAS::Buffer) up to the top-level event loop.  Since it is not easy to
notify the top-level event loop, we'll detect closed IOs after-the-fact
and retry as needed in a cold rescue path.

This fixes an occasional error (usually when using a non-parallel make)
in the test suite:

Timeout::Error: execution expired
