Summary0000333: MR_num_idle_engines count goes wrong
DescriptionHi Paul, I think you can solve this faster than I can.

I've made a copy of the parallel fib benchmark, except that it repeats. Parallel execution works for the first fib call. Afterwards, fewer engines do any work. Soon, parallel execution never occurs again.

MR_num_idle_engines should be the culprit:

Program received signal SIGINT, Interrupt.
0x0000000000405dac in fib_par_plain_module1 () at fib_par_plain.c:206
206 MR_parent_sv(3) = MR_r1;
(gdb) p MR_num_idle_engines
$2 = -2
(gdb) c
fib(40) = 165580141
fib(40) = 165580141
Program received signal SIGINT, Interrupt.
0x00007ffff6789d00 in sem_wait () from /lib64/
(gdb) p MR_num_idle_engines
$3 = 0
TagsNo tags attached.

It looks very odd where MR_num_idle_engines is -2. I'll take a look but I think 0000334 should be done first and might even help with this bug.

Unassigned things from me.
