Summary: Spin locks work intermittently on AlphaLinux

System Configuration
--------------------
  Operating System   : RedHat v5.2 Linux v2.0.35 (glibc 2.0.7-19)

  PostgreSQL version : 6.4.2

  Compiler used      : egcs v1.1.1

Hardware:
---------
DEC Alpha 21164 (from Aspen Systems), 128M RAM
uname -a: Linux garcia 2.0.35 #2 Wed Nov 11 12:15:07 EST 1998 alpha unknown


Versions of other tools:
------------------------
GNU Make version 3.76.1
flex version 2.5.4

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Problem Description:
--------------------
I was able to compile everything, and eventually init the database. 
However, during 'initdb', and in subsequent regression tests, I kept
getting the following error:

FATAL: s_lock(5556c120) at spin.c:114, stuck spinlock. Aborting.

This appeared to be the cause for some of the regression test
failures, though not for all of them.

Here are the contents of the regress.out file:

=============== Notes...                              =================
postmaster must already be running for the regression tests to succeed.
The time zone is now set to PST8PDT explicitly by this regression test
 client frontend. Please report any apparent problems to
   ports(at)postgresql(dot)org
See regress/README for more information.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Test Case:
----------
Simply follow the INSTALL intsructions to build and install on 
an AlphaLinux system, then try 'initdb', followed by running
the regression tests.

Solution:
