The patch below fixes a corner case of signals: when longjumping from a
signal handler, the code currently restores the reply port used by the
main code.  But since we possibly longjmp over a pending RPC, we should
rather just kill that reply port, which will thus get recreated on next
RPC.  Otherwise, the next RPC will try to use it and probably receive a
message that was for the interrupted RPC, and thus produce a -301 error
(EMIG_REPLY_MISMATCH)... For instance, the testcase below always show
that mach_port_destroy returns a -301 error: it actually gets the reply
message of the raise call itself...

Roland, do you agree on this?


#include <mach.h>
#include <signal.h>
#include <errno.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <fcntl.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <setjmp.h>

jmp_buf jb;

void handle(int sig) {
	fprintf(stderr, "got it\n");
	siglongjmp(jb, sig);

int main(void) 
	int res;
	int i;
	int err = 0;
	signal(SIGBUS, handle);

	if (!(res = sigsetjmp(jb, 1)))
		res = raise(SIGBUS);
		if (res)
		res = mach_port_destroy(__mach_task_self(), MACH_PORT_NULL);
		if (res)
			fprintf(stderr,"%d\n", res);
	return 0;
