Re: Potential bug in openjdk-11 on mips64el



This particular exception is being thrown by the call to unlinkat [1]
which calls native unlinkat. Man page for unlinkat describes EISDIR
error [2] as:
"EISDIR pathname refers to a directory, and AT_REMOVEDIR was not
specified in flags."

Assuming unlinkat is telling the truth and this is indeed a directory,
it can be seen from the stacktrace that deleteRecursivelySecure is
calling deleteFile [3] instead of deleteDir (deleteDir does set

This seems to indicate that the isDirectory call [4] is getting wrong
file attributes. Following the trail, those file attributes come from
a fstatat call [5] which ultimately come from the native stack in
UnixNativeDispatcher.c [6]. The actual way that fstatat is called
depends on the build flags and defines from the arch, so somebody with
better knowledge might want to take a look at UnixNativeDispatcher.c
[6] and tell if OpenJDK is picking the right function to call for
