Issue #8297 has been updated by jeremyevans0 (Jeremy Evans).

Backport deleted (1.9.3: UNKNOWN, 2.0.0: UNKNOWN)
File singleton-class-class-variable-lookup-8297.patch added

This bug is still present in the master branch.  I think the best way to fix it is to modify `Module#class_variables` for singleton classes of classes/modules to use the same lookup order as `Module#class_variable_get`:

* Singleton Class
* Class
* All Ancestors of Class

Note that this does not include modules included in the singleton class.

Attached is a patch that implements this behavior.

Bug #8297: extend & inherited class variable issue
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/8297#change-80549

* Author: dunric (David Unric)
* Status: Open
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: 
* Target version: 
* ruby -v: 2.0.0p0
* Backport: 
----------------------------------------
=begin
By the current documentation, (({Object#extend})) method has to (only) add instance methods of a module given as a parameter.
In the following example, the class ((|C|)) is extended with module ((|M|)).
By (({class_variables})) method sent to singleton class of C also did inherit class variable ((|@@xyz|)).
However when inherited ((|@@xyz|)) is accessed, (({NameError})) exception is raised as it is was not initialized.

  module M
    @@xyz = 123
  end
  M.class_variables    # [:@@xyz]
  M.class_variable_get :@@xyz    # 123 , so far so good

  class C
    extend M
  end
  p C.singleton_class.class_variables    # [:@@xyz]
  p C.singleton_class.class_variable_get :@@xyz # NameError exception

Either (({class_variables})) returns invalid array - ie. ((|@@xyz|)) was not inherited at all or (({class_variable_get})) ignores class variables inherited from module (when sent to a singleton).
=end
Prior Ruby versions like 1.9.3p392 does not suffer this issue as return with Module#class_variables returns an empty array.
