What version of Go are you using (go version)?

tip (f71f3d1)

Does this issue reproduce with the latest release?

Yes, reproducible with Go 1.18.
Go 1.17 seems to have fewer failures but can also fail.

What operating system and processor architecture are you using (go env)?


What did you do?

Run all.bash with GODEBUG=sbrk=1.

What did you expect to see?

Mostly work. Some test failures like GC accounting tests are reasonably expected.
Runtime crash is not expected (maybe except OOM, as it doesn't recycle memory in sbrk mode).

What did you see instead?

Runtime crash, which doesn't look like OOM.

... other goroutine stacks omitted ... (I can post them if it helps)

FAIL    internal/intern 0.345s

A few packages' tests with similar stack traces, at least from bulkBarrierPreWriteSrcOnly above.

Maybe we should not run write barriers at all in sbrk mode?

Write barriers should probably just be disabled in sbrk mode. It's not like any of that memory is backed by GC metadata at all.
