OpenSSL Locks

I need to do some additional processing with OpenSSL in a custom
module. I noticed ngingx does not set any locks in ngx_ssl_init (from
ngx_event_openssl.c).

A few questions:

  1. Should lock installation be guarded on NGX_THREADS or something else?

  2. Where is most appropirate to initialize the locks: ngx_init_threads
    or ngx_ssl_init (or somewhere else)?

  3. Is the project interested in a patch? (Per
    http://nginx.org/en/docs/contributing_changes.html, thanks Maxim).

Thanks in advance.

There are basically no threads support in nginx (it was
experimental and broken for a long time with the exception of some
win32-related stuff), so it’s not clear why you need locks at all.

Thanks Maxim. The source code is full of:

#if (NGX_THREADS)
  ...
#endif

I thought they were needed. My bad.
