Replacing free() with dt_free_align() for buffers
which were allocated using dt_alloc_align. Fixes #11592


#1 Updated by Tobias Ellinghaus about 2 years ago

  • Status changed from New to Triaged
  • % Done changed from 0 to 20

Jo, Roman and me didn't find anything obvious when looking over the code. It might be some memory corruption of the stack as it typically crashes with gdb complaining about broken call stack and the Windows code that has the unhandled exception is also in some stack traversing functions.

<LebedevRI> okay, so why the hell is the last "ringbuf before free: " is missing?
<peterbud> No clue, it should be there, as it is before the free() which supposed to crash
<peterbud> maybe even trying to printf the point crashes?
<peterbud> *pointer
<LebedevRI> can you show the bt with all these printfs?
<peterbud> let me try
<peterbud> but one more info:
<peterbud> I have added another printf() within this cycle:
<peterbud> and while tfor each ringbuf it has been executed 200+times, at the crash / at tle last cycle only 15 times - then crashed

<LebedevRI> did we try increasing sizes of buffers yet?
<LebedevRI> try float *ringbuf = dt_alloc_align(16, sizeof(*ringbuf)*stride*10);
<LebedevRI> and float *rows10 = {0};
<peterbud> wait, first here is the bt:
<peterbud> and searching for the error: "Critical error detected c0000374", I have found this, maybe can help:
<LebedevRI> try only float *ringbuf = dt_alloc_align(16, sizeof(*ringbuf)*stride*10);
<peterbud> increasing buffer sizes (changinf from 5 to 10) is not helping, it still crashes
<peterbud> without the float *rows10 = {0}; ?

<LebedevRI> try both
<peterbud> it seems to me that code somehow overwrites memory area which it should not
<peterbud> I'll try the second version as well
<peterbud> both version crashes
<peterbud> I believe it doesn't matter how big we are allocating, as the error message indicates that the heap block header gots corrupted/overwritten
<LebedevRI> even float *rows10 = {0}; does not help?
<peterbud> None of them
<peterbud> As I read the article, its getting more clear
<peterbud> we got this error only when we are trying to free the memory
<peterbud> as this is the time, when the heap manager checks the integrity
<peterbud> meaning the memory is being overwritten earlier,
<peterbud> no error happens
<peterbud> but when the code tries to free it, then the heap manager detects the error, and then application crashes
<peterbud> does that make sense?
<LebedevRI> yeah
<LebedevRI> then i don't understand yet what overflows
<peterbud> well, I wish I could help, but this part of the code is still chinese to me
<peterbud> but it is using a bunch of raw pointers
  • LebedevRI is as usual trying to do two things at once
    <peterbud> so it could happen easily
