Issue #10902 has been updated by Nobuyoshi Nakada.


It will disallow a library named "enumerator.rb".

----------------------------------------
Bug #10902: require("enumerator") scans LOAD_PATH 2x on every invocation
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/10902#change-53433

----------------------------------------
On every invocation of `require "enumerator"` (for example during boot when many gems require it), the VM will scan the load path twice: once for enumerator.rb and again for enumerator.so. Of course, no file is found because enumerator is now shipped within the VM by default.

~~~
$ ruby -e' p $LOADED_FEATURES[0] '
"enumerator.so"

$ ruby -e' p $LOAD_PATH.size '
8

$ strace -e trace=open ruby -e' 1.times{ require "enumerator" } ' 2>&1 | grep enumerator.rb | wc -l
8

$ strace -e trace=open ruby -e' 1.times{ require "enumerator" } ' 2>&1 | grep enumerator.so | wc -l
8

$ strace -e trace=open ruby -e' 10.times{ require "enumerator" } ' 2>&1 | grep enumerator.so | wc -l
80

$ strace -e trace=open ruby -e' 100.times{ require "enumerator" } ' 2>&1 | grep enumerator.so | wc -l
800
~~~

In enumerator.c, we call `rb_provide("enumerator.so")` which adds it to $LOADED_FEATURES. This means `require "enumerator.so"` can be optimized, but most libraries do not include the .so extension when requiring enumerator.
