Ticket #47649 - Server hangs in cos_cache when adding a user entry
Bug description: cos_dn_defs_cb reads cosDefinition and sets up the cos
Definition part of cos cache. In the function, when processing
cosAttribute, cosTargetTree and cosTemlpateDn are missing, it sets the
parent dn of the cos definition dn. This parent setting is needed only
when the 2 attributes are completely missing from the cos definition.
But if the attributes are located below cosAttribute (see the Example
cos definition), in addition to "cn=cosTemplates,ou=people,dc=example,
dc=com", the parent of "cn=generatePostalCode,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com"
is added to the cos cache as cosTemplateDn.
Example cos definition:
description: generate postalCode attr based on location
The mistakenly added cosTemplatedDn makes adding an entry under ou=People
notify recreating the cos cache. The notification needs to be outside of
backend transaction since it causes a deadlock with the cos_cache_wait_
on_change thread which cannot read the DB due to the transaction but holds
the lock that the notifier thread is waiting for.
Fix description: The parent of the cos definition dn is set to the
cosTargetTree and the cosTemlpateDn, only when the attributes are
