This program triggers a race condition in go/types on dev.typeparams since 24f9eb2:

package main

import (
	"go/types"
	"sync"
)

func main() {
	var wg sync.WaitGroup

	for i := 0; i < 2; i++ {
		wg.Add(1)
		go func() {
			defer wg.Done()
			types.Universe.Lookup("error").Type().Underlying().(*types.Interface).NumMethods()
		}()
	}

	wg.Wait()
}

@mdempsky thanks for that repro!

This is because we lazily write the interface type set. We should eagerly add an empty type set for interfaces in the universe.

Change https://golang.org/cl/336910 mentions this issue: [dev.typeparams] go/types, types2: set tset when constructing interfaces in the universe

gopherbot pushed a commit that referenced this issue Jul 24, 2021
…ces in the universe

As of CL 334894, type sets are lazily evaluated on interfaces. For the
universe interfaces error and comparable, this can lead to data races
when type checking concurrently. Fix this by computing their type set
when they are defined.

Tested using the repro from #47345. I considered checking this in as a
test, but it probably wouldn't add much value going forward.

Fixes #47345

It seems that gopherbot did not find the 'fixes' line on the previous CL, because it was not the first mention of this issue? In any case, closing as fixed.

FWIW, gopherbot did, but GitHub won't close issues via commits until those commits are merged back to the main branch of the repo (so for dev. branches you have to wait or close manually).

@zikaeroh that makes sense, thanks for the explanation!
