----------------------------------------
Bug #9036: [PATCH] io.c: make IO#reopen("pathname") atomic for non-stdio
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/9036#change-48857

* Author: Eric Wong
* Status: Closed
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: 
* Category: 
* Target version: 
* ruby -v: ruby 2.1.0dev (2013-10-20 trunk 43369) [x86_64-linux]
* Backport: 2.0.0: DONE, 2.1: DONTNEED
----------------------------------------
Since rb_sysopen releases the GVL, calling close(fptr->fd) would
leave a window where accessing the file from another thread can hit
IOError on a closed stream

Instead, create a new, temporary FD via rb_sysopen and call
rb_cloexec_dup2 on it to atomically replace the file fptr->fd points
to.  This leaves no possible window where fptr->fd is invalid to
userspace (even for any threads running w/o GVL).

Without this patch, I need to maintain separate code paths for
atomically reopening (e.g. log rotation) std{in,out,err} vs
other files in a multithreaded application.
