slapgrid: Do not leak file descriptors to subprocesses when running 'node software'
Some context: I'm trying to build Go 1.10 under slapos and get failures like:
ok os 0.782s PASS testing: can't write /tmp/go-build511454695/b682/testlog.txt: write /tmp/go-build511454695/b682/testlog.txt: broken pipe FAIL os/exec 0.947s ... ok cmd/vet/internal/cfg 0.002s 2018/04/03 18:13:29 Failed: exit status 1 golang1.10: Command failed with exit code 1: cd src && ls -l /proc/self/fd && ./all.bash && cp -alf .. /srv/slapgrid/slappart5/srv/runner/software/099a7368550e95d120639cb03b6d47c8/parts/golang1.10 golang1.10: Compilation error. The package is left as is at /srv/slapgrid/slappart5/srv/runner/software/099a7368550e95d120639cb03b6d47c8/parts/golang1.10__compile__/go where you can inspect what went wrong While: Installing golang1.10. Error: System error
This was traced to https://github.com/golang/go/issues/24285, which in turn was traced by me to the fact that golang os/exec tests close all file descriptors > 4 assuming that only stdin, stdout, stderr, epoll and testlog file descriptors are there:
However when go build is run under slapos it starts with the following descriptors inherited in the environment:
lr-x------ 1 slapuser5 slapuser5 64 Apr 3 17:57 0 -> pipe: l-wx------ 1 slapuser5 slapuser5 64 Apr 3 17:57 1 -> pipe: l-wx------ 1 slapuser5 slapuser5 64 Apr 3 17:57 2 -> pipe: l-wx------ 1 slapuser5 slapuser5 64 Apr 3 17:57 3 -> /srv/slapgrid/slappart5/srv/runner/software.log
i.e. the file descriptor for software.log (under
slapos node software) is
passed opened to spawned buildout commands -> and oops - go build failure.
I'm not saying go behaviour is correct. However for slapos it is also not good to leak e.g. log file descriptors to spawned processes (e.g. what if spawned child writes there by mistake?).
Since fixing on Go side is not very easy, because it will probably require non-small testing infrastructure refactoring, I decided to fix on SlapOS side, because it is a) easier, and b) correct & good to do in any way.
To fix we just pass close_fds=True to subprocess.Popen run from under SlapPopen, which means that popen will close all file descriptors besides stdin, stdout & stderr for child. close_fds default is already True for python3
for the reason that it is frequent mistake for programmers to not leak file descriptors to spawned processes.
However on python2, which we are still using, close_fds default is False.
So let's fix the default on our side.
