Bug #9342: [PATCH] SizedQueue#clear does not notify waiting threads in Ruby 1.9.3
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/9342#change-45367

* Author: Justin Collins

----------------------------------------
In Ruby 1.9.3, when SizedQueue#clear is called, it empties the queue but does not notify waiting threads that the queue is empty. This typically leads to deadlock when the queue is full.

For example:

sq = SizedQueue.new(1)
sq << 1  # Fill queue

t1 = Thread.new do
  sq << 1  # Attempt to add another item to queue, fail and go to sleep waiting
end

t2 = Thread.new do
  Thread.pass
  sq.clear
end

t2.join # Empty queue
t1.join # Deadlock, t1 continues to sleep
