Hi Sasha,

What's your setup here? Are you booting directly to a shell?

Because I'm wondering how init has a tty.
Also, init is exiting here -- upstart only exits when commanded or on
SIGSEGV or SIGABRT.

What's going on here is:
1. some process is in a blocking read from a console
(and has an ldisc lock)
2. init is exiting
3. init being the session leader hangs up the tty
4. as part of tty hangup, waiting readers and writers are woken
5. hangup waits for all readers and writers to exit their i/o loops
(and drop their ldisc locks)
6. the process from step 1 wakes up and re-checks
a. input available? no.
b. other pty closed? no, this isn't a pty pair.
c. file hung up? no, open consoles are not hung up.
d. signal pending? no.
7. goes back to sleep

This is only indirectly related to the patchset in that the patchset
rightly ensures the ldisc will not be closed while in use.

The actual problem is that disassociate_tty() tries to hang up the tty
_before_ signalling processes in the (foreground) process group. This is
why the blocking reader didn't exit -- it had not received a signal
because the signal has not yet been sent.

OTOH, why try to hangup the ldisc at all if consoles are using the tty?
I'll have to think some more before I send a patch for this.

In the meantime, if this (or the other thing) happen again, I'd really
appreciate if you could get a sysrq-d for any of the ldisc/tty related
reports.

Thanks,
Peter Hurley
