When executing an select/insert/update/delete scenario, maria deadlocked with all threads waiting on this thread:

How to repeat:
If this is repeatable, a test case will be provided.

Suggested fix:
It may be the right time to implement either a run-time deadlock detector which prints stalled threads, or a tool that processes lock/unlock trace information from a test run and produces a list of loops in the lock graph. Falcon and Innodb have such functionality. If Maria also has something similar, please advise on how to enable it.

Hi Philip. Regarding the deadlock detector, Monty has this on his table. But it can be something else than a deadlock. For example, BUG#39210 is not about a deadlock but a thread which never woken up from a wait, though it should. Not all infinite waits are deadlocks. By the way, thanks for the daily bug reports!

To fix hangs we need a repeatable test case;  A stack trace will very seldom be enough to find and fix the problem.  Stack traces for all threads may be of some help but we would greatly prefer to be able to run something that will crash eventually.

Regarding the deadlock handler;  I plan to shortly finish a detector of wrong mutex usage (using mutex in different order) but this is not likely to help fixing this problem.

This bug is now repeatable on pushbuild2 with the test maria_bulk_insert:



Please let me know if a better test case is needed and I will try to provide.

It is the same bug with bug#40308. As far as fic commit marked with bug number 40308 I put this one as duplicate and will move statuses to that bug.
