SystemError in RSocket__setblocking (Travis CI)

Hey all! So Travis recently updated their default image, and the pypy used there (Python 2.7.13 (8cdda8b8cdb8, Apr 14 2019, 14:06:44) [PyPy 7.1.1 with GCC 6.2.0 20160901]) gives me this issue:

SystemError: unexpected internal exception (please report a bug): <CSocketError object at 0x6922eb0>; internal traceback was dumped to stderr

RPython traceback:
File "pypy_interpreter.c", line 40143, in BuiltinCode2_fastcall_2
File "implement_11.c", line 13173, in fastfunc_settimeout_w_2
File "pypy_module__socket.c", line 2293, in W_Socket_settimeout_w
File "rpython_rlib.c", line 59823, in RSocket__setblocking

The full pytest run can be seen here:

Attempting to reproduce locally, I confirmed the value of timeout there is 10. However there's no expection raised. Locally I'm using the Ubuntu PPA version: Python 2.7.13 (7.0.0+dfsg-1~ppa1~ubuntu16.04, Feb 07 2019, 20:56:09) / [PyPy 7.0.0 with GCC 5.4.0 20160609] on linux2

Maybe I should pick this up with Travis, but I figured if it’s affecting me, and Travis just updated the defaults, you may be seeing more of these in future. Thanks in advance for any help!

    Minimal reproducer:

    import socket
    a, _ = socket.socketpair()

    Offending code seems to be:

    This won’t occur with the object returned by socket.socket() because its close() method removes the underlying _socket, so the settimeout(1) call can't invoke fcntl on an fd of -1.

    The error seems to imply that _rsocket_ffi.socketpair isn't saving errno, but it's declared with save=SAVE_ERR.

    Note that the reproducer does not raise an EBADF exception on CPython 2, but does on Python 3.6+ and PyPy 3.6 beta (784b254d669919c872a505b807db8462b6140973). That implies something's missing from the backport, and that the right thing to do would be to silently ignore EBADF in RSocket._setblocking in PyPy’s 2.7 implementation.

  3. Armin Rigo

    This won't occur with socket.socket() because that function wraps the returned socket inside the class provided by the pure-Python, whereas for some reason socket.socketpair() does not.

    Like you have found, it turns out that socket.settimeout() and socket.setblocking() always ignore all errors in CPython 2. Getting the RPython-level exception from is fine, but the code is missing catching that in pypy.module._socket.interp_socket (as it must, to either convert the exception into an app-level socket.error or, as here, to ignore it). I've done it in 8819acbf633a, and merged into the py3.6 branch where these two functions no longer ignore errors. Thanks!
