This came when trying to write some runtime test code that called systemstack from a generic function. It's possible this is just not allowed for some reason, but it was surprising to me.

Here's a patch for reproducing the issue.

I can produce the failure by running this command, with the above patch applied.

go test -run="MyGenericFunc" -race runtime

Here's the failure:

FAIL	runtime	0.023s

When I poke at the faulting thread in gdb, it segfaults when calling _tsan_enter_func at entry to the function passed to systemstack.

I marked this as cmd/compile because it seems like it might be a race instrumentation issue? I'm not familiar with the race detector's invariants, so I'm not quite sure what's going on here.

The test notably does not fail if:

  • I make MyGenericFunc not generic.
  • I make the function passed to systemstack do nothing. (I suspect it's just optimized away.)

Copy link

The problem here is when runtime.MyGenericFunc[int] is instantiated in package runtime_test, the closure gets duplicated in the runtime_test compilation unit. However, the compiler fails to recognize that it originally came from package runtime, and thus shouldn't be race instrumented.

I can look into this, but it only affects the runtime, so it seems relatively low priority unless it causes problems for testing.

You should be able to workaround the issue for now by making sure any instantiations happen within package runtime.

+1 to very low priority. Thanks for taking the time to look into it!

I think the issue here is in walk.instrument.

We're deciding whether to instrument a function based on base.Flag.Race and base.Compiling, which look at the current compilation unit's flags. But for functions instantiated across compilation unit boundaries (e.g., for generics, though theoretically this could affect other generated functions like equality and hash functions too), this isn't necessarily correct.

The fix should be to ensure IR builders set the Norace pragma as appropriate.

How about making walk.instrument skips runtime functions? Something like this:

@cuonglm We need to also prevent runtime functions from getting inlined into other packages, otherwise they could still get instrumented that way.
