Comment (by Stavros Passas):

 Hi Sebastian,
 I can try to fill in the information for you. the SMP testssuite runs
 clean. We run RTEMS from

 We run with 2 cores, >= 4 threads (failure is not seen with less than 4
 threads). All threads are pthreads, and are started with
 PTHREAD_EXPLICIT_SCHED If the threads are not pinned to any processor, we
 see no issue. If the threads are pinned to (thread_number % 2), after a
 while (usually 20k-100k iteration) EDF does not schedule any thread --
 both cores are running the idle loop. If I change the schedule to the
 priority affinity SMP scheduler, context switching works as expected.

 I also tried to replace {{{pthread_mutex_lock}}} with {{{sem_wait}}} and
 {{{rtems_semaphore_obtain}}} and all primitives behave the same with EDF.
