In this post, co-authored with my Ph D student Luís Pina, I take a closer look at the challenge that DSU presents, showing that what Linux will support is still quite far from what we might hope for, but that ideas from the research community promise to get us closer to the ideal, both for operating systems and hopefully for many other applications as well. If in the updated program the entries of a hash table are extended with a timeout field, then a dynamic update needs to convert in-memory hashtable entries to now contain a timeout field; otherwise, when the updated code goes to access that field, it will behave unpredictably.
While rebootless patching is convenient for everyone, it’s a game changer for some applications.
These abstractions can be used to prove termination and other liveness properties of heap-manipulating programs.
