I assume that you start executing the receiver thread by calling
'Thread_base::start()' in the receiver's constructor? If this is the
case, you have a race condition. The receiver thread is executed right
before you register the signal context at the signal receiver 's_rcvr'.
You can fix this by starting the receiver thread after calling
In the 'Receiver' class:
class Receiver : Thread<STACK_SIZE>
+ using Thread_base::start;
In your main function:
Receiver *ser_rx = new (env()->heap()) Receiver(s_rcvr, srv.transmit);
Signal_context_capability send_cap = s_rcvr.manage(&ct);
BTW, if your code relies on the correct number of signals (that is, not
just using signals as a wake-up mechanism), you need to take the value
'signal.num()' into account. If signals are batched, 'num' may be higher
than one. In you current error case, the 'num' value returned by the
first call of 'wait_for_signal' was indeed zero, indicating that is is
no valid signal.
Signal signal = _receiver.wait_for_signal();
+ /* evaluate signal.num() */
