Hey Alex, thanks for commenting.
Some problems for instance:
2. Our lack of signal queues has some implications with mq_notify() not working
100% as the standard expects.
3. There is a stale read-only useless (because currently we lack mqueues
support) p1003_1b.mq_open_max sysctl variable, that needs to be removed. When I
took a look at it in the summer it was part of some hackerish code and didnt
So things like that. Not fatal, but need to be solved eventually.
As for pkgsrc, I didnt complete the bulk build, because at some point that I
needed to resume it, it started building all the packages from scratch! And
after 14 days of building, I didnt have the patience to start all over again.
Also I didnt check which packages I broke (if any), because that would require a
non-mqueue bulk build to compare with, which I just can't afford resources-wise.
The bottom line is that I didnt introduce any significant breakage. Based on
hassos@ reports, we already have ~700 package failures.
