Even if that is the case file system cache effects should NOT be visible to a userland process. This is NOT as if your running 2 different processing beating on a file. Your test cases are serialially syncronous shell invoked commands seperated with && the results should be exact and predictable. When strip returns the operation from the userland perspecive is completed and any and all processeses started after that should have the view of the completed strip command. This IS a bug. -- Rod Grimes rgri...@freebsd.org _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
