Commit Message

Gustavo Luiz Duarte Feb. 11, 2020, 3:38 a.m. UTC
The test case tm-signal-context-force-tm expects a segfault to happen on
returning from signal handler, and then does a setcontext() to run the test
again. However, the test doesn't always segfault, causing the test to run a
single time.

This patch fixes the test by putting it within a loop and jumping, via
setcontext, just prior to the loop in case it segfaults. This way we get the
desired behavior (run the test COUNT_MAX times) regardless if it segfaults or
not. This also reduces the use of setcontext for control flow logic, keeping it
only in the segfault handler.

Also, since 'count' is changed within the signal handler, it is declared as
volatile to prevent any compiler optimization getting confused with
asynchronous changes.
