[Libevent-users] Please consider backporting http://sourceforge.net/p/levent/bugs/244/ to the 2.0.X branch

The Mozilla testing infrastructure has recently been hit by the
following bad bug on OS X:


As best we can tell, it's caused by a bug in the OS X kernel.  But it
turns out that the patch at http://sourceforge.net/p/levent/bugs/244/
works around it.

However, this patch is currently only on the libevent 2.1.X branch.  So
I, on behalf of Mozilla, would like to request that you consider
backporting this patch to the current "stable" branch, from which the
2.0.X releases are made.

We will backport the patch ourselves (or something close to it) -- since
the bug quite urgently needs to be fixed.  But it will be more
convenient for Mozilla if, at some point, we can drop our patch and
upgrade to a 2.0.X version that contains it.

I've already asked about this at
http://sourceforge.net/p/levent/bugs/244/.  But Zack Weinberg suggested
I should also email this list.

Thanks in advance!
