parentpowerpc/powernv/opal: Use standard interrupts property when available (diff)
selftests/powerpc: Kill child processes on SIGINT
There are some powerpc selftests, as tm/tm-unavailable, that run for a long period (>120 seconds), and if it is interrupted, as pressing CRTL-C (SIGINT), the foreground process (harness) dies but the child process and threads continue to execute (with PPID = 1 now) in background. In this case, you'd think the whole test exited, but there are remaining threads and processes being executed in background. Sometimes these zombies processes are doing annoying things, as consuming the whole CPU or dumping things to STDOUT. This patch fixes this problem by attaching an empty signal handler to SIGINT in the harness process. This handler will interrupt (EINTR) the parent process waitpid() call, letting the code to follow through the normal flow, which will kill all the processes in the child process group. This patch also fixes a typo. Signed-off-by: Breno Leitao <leitao@debian.org> Signed-off-by: Gustavo Romero <gromero@linux.vnet.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Michael Ellerman <mpe@ellerman.id.au>
