Description Boyan Ding 2014-07-06 01:37:19 UTC
Recent mainlined dri3 & glamor support can cause glxgears stop rendering.

Steps to reproduce (both happens under weston and gnome on wayland):
1. run glxgears
2. wait until the animation stop (which can happen at any time). Notice the refresh rate output in the terminal also stops (I guess it gets stuck somewhere in the main loop)

This issue don't appear without dri3 & glamor (when llvmpipe is used).

xwayland(xserver) (HEAD):
mesa: 10.2.2
libdrm: 2.4.54

Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000

I built a glxgears with debug symbols and used gdb, I discovered pressing 'a' several times (to pause and restart animation) can effectively trigger the halt, and the stack trace when it is halted is always as below (sorry I used heavily optimized and stripped binaries, I am too lazy to build them myself):

line 183 at draw() is:

I guess it has something to do with dri3.

Finally built mesa (10.2.3) myself with debug symbols and backtrace is as below:

Seems that it halts in waiting for back buffers.

It's the bug of libxcb 1.10
Fixed in http://cgit.freedesktop.org/xcb/libxcb/commit/?id=3b72a2c9d1d656c74c691a45689e1d637f669e3a
