           Summary: LLDB stops on every call to dlopen() when the process
                    has additional threads running under kernel 4.20

Reproduction case that stops when calling dlopen()

Since updating to Linux kernel 4.20, if a program is run under LLDB and calls
dlopen() after spawning additional process threads LLDB will stop on every call
to dlopen() with the reason "shared-library-event", even though
target.process.stop-on-sharedlibrary-events is set to false.  Attempts to
continue results in additional stops with the reason being either additional
shared-library-events or SIGSTOP.  If halting on SIGSTOP is disabled in LLDB,
the program will eventually complete the dlopen() call successfully and run
normally.  Calling dlopen() from a single-threaded program results in no

This only occurs under kernel 4.20. When running the same program under kernel
4.19 no issues are exhibited.  GDB doesn't stop under the same conditions and
the test program shows no errors with the various Clang sanitizers or Valgrind.
 I've reproduced this on two separate machines with both the stable LLDB 7.0.1
as well as a recent build of the trunk.

The output of LLDB when running a small reproduction case (included as an
attachment), which spawns a single thread and loads a minimal shared library,
is as follows:

(lldb) target create "lldb_stop"
Current executable set to 'lldb_stop' (x86_64).
(lldb) settings show target.process.stop-on-sharedlibrary-events
target.process.stop-on-sharedlibrary-events (boolean) = false
(lldb) r
