there is broken code in php 5.3.16, 5.3.17 and 5.4 branch since 5.4.5 in FPM sapi that hangs fpm master on reload:
please apply patch or bump to latest stable from mainstream
Steps to Reproduce:
1. reload php-fpm on high load
I am currently in the process of rewriting the ebuilds, so that is why I did not bump the latest one. Hopefully I can find the time to finish that by tomorrow.
5.3.18/5.4.8 has been relesed to CVS
