Some more info on this bug, it is this snippet that causes
the test failure

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
#include <signal.h>

int
main (void)
{
  if (!raise (-1))
    return 1;
  
  return 0;
}
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

but only when linked against libpthread:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
$ gcc raise.c
$ ./a.out
$ echo $?
0
$ gcc raise.c /gnu/store/9vs3gkp6svam82zw7vjlml7iiarcs11c-glibc-2.31/lib/libpthread.so.0.3
$ ./a.out
User defined signal 2
$ echo $?
159
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

I believe this commit also caused the guix data service to not want to
import more derivations.

I don’t know if it’s relevant here, but you should always use ‘-pthread’
both at compile time and link time:

  gcc raise.c -pthread

That typically defines a few macros that may or may not have an effect
on the code at hand.

Thanks,
Ludo’.

Ah...right.  Makes no difference, though:

root@childhurd ~# guix environment --bootstrap --ad-hoc gcc-toolchain@7
root@childhurd ~ [env]# gcc raise.c
root@childhurd ~ [env]# ./a.out
root@childhurd ~ [env]# echo $?
0
root@childhurd ~ [env]# gcc raise.c -pthread
root@childhurd ~ [env]# ./a.out
User defined signal 2
root@childhurd ~ [env]# echo $?
159

Greetings,
Janneke

Interesting!  In the second case, we’re using ‘__pthread_kill’ from
‘pt-kill.c’ (instead of ‘kill’).

The expected behavior is that ‘raise’ should return non-zero and EINVAL.

‘pthread_kill’ passes the signal number to ‘_hurd_raise_signal’, which
assumes it is valid:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
int
_hurd_raise_signal (struct hurd_sigstate *ss,
		    int signo, const struct hurd_signal_detail *detail)
{
  if (ss == NULL)
    {
      ss = _hurd_self_sigstate ();
      __spin_lock (&ss->lock);
    }

  /* Mark SIGNO as pending to be delivered.  */
  __sigaddset (&ss->pending, signo);
  ss->pending_data[signo] = *detail;
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

I suppose that before calling ‘sigaddset’, it should check whether SIGNO
is within bounds, along the lines of:

  if (signo < 2 || signo >= _NSIG)
    return EINVAL;

Does that make sense?

Thanks,
Ludo’.

Probably, yes. Why excluding SIGHUP?

Oops, an oversight: I was looking at ‘signum-generic.h’ and the first
definition is SIGINT (2).  :-)
