Subject: Re: [PATCH] ring-buffer: Fix polling on trace_pipe

Hi Steve,

I retried the test program (with the kernel patch).  It does block from
time to time.  I spotted the ee.events is not set to EPOLLIN before
calling epll_ctl(eft, EPOLL_CTL_ADD,...).  I fixed it and ran
the test in a bash-loop.

I have the kafai-2 version attached (with some more logging in case
if it still blocks).

Can you retry?

Thanks,
Martin
