worker: POSIX only supports workers from main thread (issue6460)

Authored by joerg.sonnenberger on Sun, Dec 27, 7:05 PM.



The POSIX backend sets signal handlers for SIGINT (maybe avoidable) and
SIGCHLD (necessary for waitpid). Python up to 3.9 only allow this from
the main thread, so disable the worker feature otherwise.

Event Timeline

This is a bit of a proof-of-concept. The check is likely stricter than necessary, i.e. I didn't check what the constraints are for Windows.

This seems like a step in the right direction (if I understand the issue correctly). However this kind of "arbitrary" restriction warrant a clear comment block to explain why we do it.
