[OpenMP][DeviceRTL] Fixed an issue that causes hang in SU3

Authored by tianshilei1992 on Oct 29 2021, 6:19 PM.



The synchronization at the end of parallel region cannot make sure all threads
exit the scope. As a result, the assertions right after it might be hit, and
further the state::assumeInitialState(IsSPMD) in __kmpc_target_deinit may
not hold as well. We either add a synchronization right after the parallel region,
or remove the assertions and assuptions. Here we choose the first one as those
assertions and assumptions can help optimizations.

This explanation seems plausible. Are the synchronization requirement of ASSERT and why being documented somewhere?


Have no idea.

synchronize::threadsAligned() has been called at the end of above scope.
What caused the out of sync and needs this additional call?
Why ASSERT requires synchronization.
All needs explanation or documentation.
"Synchronize all threads to make sure every thread exits the scope above;"
Just sounds plausible

Making code slower by the addtional synchronization can also potentially skip triggering the hang. So it needs to be well understood and explained.

The key point here is the scope because state configuration is via RAII. The synchronization at the end of the scope can only make sure threads are aligned *before* exiting the scope, but since then, it is undetermined which threads exits first.

If the destructor sets a state which is supposed to be shared by all the threads, can synchronize::threadsAligned() be called inside the destructor?

OK. The destructor is only for a single value and having one alignment for multiple destructors is beneficial.
