I don't have any packet captures to prove I got hit by those, but
anyway, I've upgraded to lighttpd 1.4.38. Which is here:
However, I still experience the hangs. :-(
Could it have to do with the remark by ChristianH:  "This hints we
may have an issue with our file descriptor handling on poll/select."
I have reasons to believe the system is busy waiting instead of polling.
The power usage monitor shows a constant 56.8 Watts when running
Fiasco.OC with lightttpd and a mere 43.6 when running linux. A cpuburn
at one cpu reaches just 1 watt less than Genode.
Is this polling to be expected from Fiasco.OC with debug mode enabled?
Is Genode smart enough to prevent busy loops or is it worth
investigation as a cause for the hangs?
