Bug 1497769 [wpt PR 13447] - [wptrunner] Discard corrupted message queues, a=testonly Automatic update from web-platform-tests[wptrunner] Discard corrupted message queues (#13447) "TestRunner" sub-processes forward their standard output streams to the "TestRunnerManager" process via a Python multiprocessing Queue. When such a process produces a large amount of output (e.g. in failing WebDriver specification tests), the data may be buffered in the underlying operating system pipe. In this state, such a process will not exit naturally: > Bear in mind that a process that has put items in a queue will wait > before terminating until all the buffered items are fed by the > "feeder" thread to the underlying pipe. [1] Previously, the TestRunnerManager forcibly terminated the sub-process and re-used the message queue, providing it to a new sub-process and waiting for new items to be inserted. However, the queue's behavior is unpredictable in this state. It has been observed to block indefinitely on GNU/Linux and macOS systems [2]. To avoid this behavior, discard the queue and create a new instance for use in subsequent tests.
