      Description

      Request/response handling in FetchSessionHandler is not thread-safe. But we are using it in Kafka consumer without any synchronization even though poll() from heartbeat thread can process responses. Heartbeat thread holds the coordinator lock while processing its poll and responses, making other operations involving the group coordinator safe. We also need to lock FetchSessionHandler for the operations that update or read FetchSessionHandler#sessionPartitions.

      This exception is from a system test run on trunk of TestSecurityRollingUpgrade.test_rolling_upgrade_sasl_mechanism_phase_two:

      The logs just prior to the exception show that a partition was removed from the session:

      java.util.ConcurrentModificationException

      The sequence in the logs show

      1. FETCH response received
      2. FetchSessionHandler#sessionPartitions is updated (a partition is removed)
      3. New FETCH request is sent
      4. Heartbeat thread throws ConcurrentModificationException while iterating over FetchSessionHandler#sessionPartitions

      This could be because 1) and 4) were on the heartbeat thread and 2) and 3) on the thread processing Consumer#poll().
