Some variables:

thd->lex->sql_command	SQLCOM_INSERT_SELECT	enum_sql_command
lock_type	TL_READ_NO_INSERT	thr_lock_type

How to repeat:
will upload a standalone testcase soon.

Suggested fix:

is prebuilt->trx NULL?

[20 Mar 2007 15:47] Shane Bester
prebuilt value i can't get from debugger, but assembler shows garbage pointer being dereferenced. debug build didn't crash yet..

This is actually the 5.0 and 4.1 bug that I already found in http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=21322 but forgot to fix then!
[20 Mar 2007 15:59] Heikki Tuuri
The fix is to add this code to the start of ::store_lock() also in 5.0 (and 4.1):

        trx_t*          trx;

        /* Note that trx in this function is NOT necessarily prebuilt->trx
        because we call update_thd() later, in ::external_lock()! Failure to
        understand this caused a serious memory corruption bug in 5.1.11. */

        trx = check_trx_exists(ht, thd);

and use trx->isolation_level in subsequent code in ::store_lock().

Assigning this to Vasil.

This bug should be fixed in 5.0.
In 5.1 it has been fixed already.
A fix in 4.1 might make sense, if MySQL AB wants to apply the fix there.

if you do not use the Embedded Server Library, then it is enough to edit ha_innodb.cc in /sql.

You should add my code snippet to the start of ha_innobase::store_lock(), and replace the use of 'prebuilt->trx' by plain 'trx' in that function. There seems to be just 1 use of prebuilt->trx, if I looked carefully enough.


[20 Mar 2007 17:27] Heikki Tuuri
Oops, in 5.0, the code should be:

trx = check_trx_exists(thd);
[20 Mar 2007 17:37] Shane Bester
i confirm the patch in 5.0 stops this specific crash. just tested it twice, successfully.
[21 Mar 2007 7:54] Matthias Albert
is this correct?

[21 Mar 2007 11:08] Matthias Albert
Shane, and my patch is correct? (see my attachment 4 comments before). I will build a new mysql rpm with 5.0.37 for me, if the attached patch is correct.


[21 Mar 2007 14:03] Heikki Tuuri

your patch is otherwise correct, but you should make trx a local variable, not a parameter in the function call.

INSERT INTO ... SELECT caused a crash if
innodb_locks_unsafe_for_binlog was enabled.
[26 Jul 2007 18:01] Shane Bester
crash is not limited to only insert .. select.  It can happen on most queries which modify table.

Patch applies to 5.0 only. Removing 5.1.21 changelog entry.
