Hello everybody,

The malloc_init_hard() function defined in jemalloc_jemalloc.c, FreeBSD 11 r277486 reads:

static bool
    if (base_boot()) {
        eturn (true);

    if (chunk_boot()) {
        return (true);

The second call initializes the 'chunksize' global variable defined in jemalloc_chunk.c:

    /* Set variables according to the value of opt_lg_chunk. */
    chunksize = (ZU(1) << opt_lg_chunk);
    assert(chunksize >= PAGE);

However, it seems the first call to base_boot() depends on that variable already:

Note that base_pages() calls chunk_alloc() with chucksize used as the alignment value:

static bool
base_pages_alloc(size_t minsize)
    base_pages = chunk_alloc(csize, chunksize, true, &zero,

and the latter tests it against zero:

void *
chunk_alloc(size_t size, size_t alignment, bool base, bool *zero,
    dss_prec_t dss_prec)
    assert(alignment != 0);

so we sometimes we end up with:

<jemalloc>: jemalloc_chunk.c:152: Failed assertion: "alignment != 0"

Here's more of failures of this kind around:


Can you please let me know if the analysis is correct and there's something to fix about initialization of the variable?
