[PATCH] Windows: only add a no-op pthread_sigmask() when needed

Johannes Schindelin
In f924b52 (Windows: add pthread_sigmask() that does nothing,
2016-05-01), we introduced a no-op for Windows. However, this breaks
building Git in Git for Windows' SDK because pthread_sigmask() is
already a no-op there, #define'd in the pthread_signal.h header in
/mingw64/x86_64-w64-mingw32/include/.

Let's guard the definition of pthread_sigmask() in #ifndef...#endif to
make the code compile both with modern MinGW-w64 as well as with the
previously common MinGW headers.

        have the referenced commit yet).

One thing that makes me wonder is what would happen when
/mingw64/x86_64-w64-mingw32/include/pthread_signal.h changes its
mind and uses "static inline" instead of "#define".  How much
control does Git-for-Windows folks have over that header file?

Also, could you explain "However" part a bit?  Obviously in _some_
environment other than "Git for Windows' SDK", the previous patch
helped you compile.  And you need to #ifdef it out, because "Git for
Windows' SDK" already has its own support.  What is that other
environment that lacks the support (hence we need our own "static
inline") and is there a way to tell "Git for Windows' SDK" from that
other environment?

What I am trying to get at is:

 (1) If the answer is "we have total control", then I am perfectly
     fine with using "#ifdef pthread_sigmask" here.

 (2) If not, i.e. "they can change the implementation to 'static
     inline' themselves", then I do not think it is prudent to use
     "#ifndef pthread_sigmask" as the conditional here--using a
     symbol that lets you check for that "other" environment and
     doing "#ifdef THAT_OTHER_ONE_THAT_LACKS_SIGMASK" would be
     safer.

Also is https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-gnulib/2015-04/msg00068.html
relevant?  Does /mingw64/x86_64-w64-mingw32/include/ implement "macro only
without function"?

We have no control over this, it is defined by one of the MSYS2 packages.
(I think those headers come directly from the MinGW-w64 GCC project.)

I can think of two different ways to resolve this, would you please
indicate your preference?

1. fix the non-POSIX-ness:

        #ifdef pthread_sigmask
        #undef pthread_sigmask
        #endif

   or even shorter:

        #undef pthread_sigmask

2. just go with whatever MSYS2 provides:

        #ifndef __MINGW64_VERSION_MAJOR
        [... define the no-op ...]
        #endif

Yes, Hannes uses his own MSys environment. (Which is different from
everything *I* have, I think, it's not even msysGit.)

So I guess that you're preferring my 2. above. Going on that assumption, I
will send out another iteration.

Yes, it has that problem. Do we care, really?

Ciao,

[PATCH v2] Windows: only add a no-op pthread_sigmask() when needed

Johannes Schindelin
In reply to this post by Johannes Schindelin
In f924b52 (Windows: add pthread_sigmask() that does nothing,
2016-05-01), we introduced a no-op for Windows. However, this breaks
building Git in Git for Windows' SDK because pthread_sigmask() is
already a no-op there, #define'd in the pthread_signal.h header in
/mingw64/x86_64-w64-mingw32/include/.

Let's wrap the definition of pthread_sigmask() in a guard that skips
it when compiling with MinGW-w64' headers.

Not really.  I was curious how actively this area is evolving;
knowing that would help me judge pros-and-cons between your 1 & 2
above.
