The n_poll_lcores counter and poll_lcore array are shared between lcores
and the update of these variables are out of the protection of spinlock
on each lcore timer list. The read-modify-write operations of the counter
are not atomic, so it has the potential of race condition between lcores.

Use c11 atomics with RELAXED ordering to prevent confliction.

Hi Phil,

Good catch - thanks for the fix.   I've commented in-line:

Just a nit, but let's align the continued line with the opening parentheses in
this location and below.  With these changes:

Since this commit will be back ported, we should prefer to use rte_atomic APIs for this commit. Otherwise, we will have a mix of rte_atomic and C11 APIs.
My suggestion is to fix this bug using rte_atomic so that backported code will have only rte_atomic APIs. Add another commit (if required) in this series to make the bug fix use C11 APIs (this commit will not be backported).

Agree. 
I will change this patch to the rte_atomic version in the next version.

Hi Phil,

Could you send the next version? I would like to take this series for
RC1(next-eventdev tree)

Hi Honnappa,

It doesn't have an applicable rte_atomic_XXX API to fix this issue.
The rte_atomic32_inc doesn't return the original value of the input parameter and rte_atomic32_add_return can only return the new value.

Meanwhile, the rte_timer_alt_manage & rte_timer_stop_all API not support rte_atomic type parameters. We might need to rewrite these two APIs if we want to use rte_atomic operations for n_pol_lcores and poll_lcores array.

So, a better solution could be to backport the entire c11 solution to stable releases.

Thanks,
Phil

Thanks, Jerin.
I will upstream the new patch series soon.

I am ok with the approach.
