You guys are doing user-space threads on Linux ??  I had a quick look at
the LWP library in Coda.

Have you considered using the native Pthreads support in Redhat 5.0 ??
I dont think this would be hard, just map LWPs onto Pthreads.

I've been having great luck with Pthreads... I have DCE RPC working on
RH Linux 5.0 (Intel and Alpha platform). DCE RPC uses a bunch of threads
underneath - for packet-retransmission timers, thread dispatch per RPC,

GNU Libc uses Pthreads internally... Thats whats going on at the last
activation record in the gdb dump. I'm wondering if somehow the user-space
threads library is messing with the internal pthreads stuff in Glibc?

I wish I had time to contribute to Coda - its truly an awesome and
worthy project.. But my time is already maxxed on other committments,
mostly DCE for Linux. I like to follow whats going on here though.
