 Description  « Hide
Class SignalInhibit is using sigprocmask() system call to disable signals processing in critical parts of code. This leads to abnormally intensive flow of sigprocmask() system calls, causing performance problems in almost any engine operation mode.

Except when being in signal handler reverted to old way of signals disabling, which does not require system calls.

Great luck that HEAD is not touched - signals are not in use in it any more.
