** Changed in: ruby2.3 (Ubuntu)
       Status: Triaged => In Progress

** Changed in: ruby2.3 (Ubuntu)
     Assignee: (unassigned) => Andreas Hasenack (ahasenack)

** Description changed:

+ [Impact]
+ 
+  * An explanation of the effects of the bug on users and
+ 
+  * justification for backporting the fix to the stable release.
+ 
+  * In addition, it is helpful, but not required, to include an
+    explanation of how the upload fixes this bug.
+ 
+ [Test Case]
+ 
+  * detailed instructions how to reproduce the bug
+ 
+  * these should allow someone who is not familiar with the affected
+    package to reproduce the bug and verify that the updated package fixes
+    the problem.
+ 
+ [Regression Potential]
+ 
+  * discussion of how regressions are most likely to manifest as a result
+ of this change.
+ 
+  * It is assumed that any SRU candidate patch is well-tested before
+    upload and has a low overall risk of regression, but it's important
+    to make the effort to think about what ''could'' happen in the
+    event of a regression.
+ 
+  * This both shows the SRU team that the risks have been considered,
+    and provides guidance to testers in regression-testing the SRU.
+ 
+ [Other Info]
+  
+  * Anything else you think is useful to include
+  * Anticipate questions from users, SRU, +1 maintenance, security teams and the Technical Board
+  * and address these questions in advance

  We've noticed an issue across multiple servers where puppet agent will
  seem to get stuck and consume 100% CPU for days or weeks on end until
  manually killed.

  Strace shows it in a sched_yield() loop:
