Review request for mesos and Alexander Rukletsov.


Expanded description.

Summary (updated)

Added macros to unconditionally disable boost debug mode.

Bugs: MESOS-9177

Repository: mesos

Description (updated)

Boost.CircularBuffer includes optional debugging code that
counts the number of currently existing iterators to the
container. Up to Boost 1.62, this code was enabled by

However, the existing iterators were stored in a linked list
that was updated without any synchronization, leading to
potential segfaults when reading the same buffer from multiple

Given that the Master stores the completed tasks for each framework
in a circular buffer, and that this can be read from multiple threads
when multiple batched requests to the `/state` endpoint are processed,
we have to unconditionally disable Boost's debug mode to prevent
possible segfaults.

Diffs (updated)

  src/master/master.hpp dc0080b24f19b77a4de34ab24aece657726343b8

* Compiled mesos master against boost 1.53 from
* Wrote a script that can trigger a segfault by reading from a circular buffer in parallel
(pasted in the linked ticket) and verified that it crashes mesos master.
* Recompiled mesos with this patch applied.
* Verified that the above script does not produce a segfault anymore.
