2011-09-09fix pthread_join wait call: thread termination tid futex is not privateRich Felker-1/+1
this seeme to be the bug that prevented enabling of private futex support. i'm going to hold off on switching to private futexes until after the next release, and until i get a chance to audit all wait/wake calls to make sure they're using the correct private argument, but with this change it should be safe to enable private futex support.
2011-09-09implement POSIX asynchronous ioRich Felker-0/+398
some features are not yet supported, and only minimal testing has been performed. should be considered experimental at this point.
2011-09-05fix incorrect overflow errors on strtoul, etc.Rich Felker-8/+20
2011-09-05strptime: fix use of uninitialized dest field in converting integerRich Felker-1/+1
2011-09-04more fmemopen null termination fixesRich Felker-2/+3
null termination is only added when current size grows. in update modes, null termination is not added if it does not fit (i.e. it is not allowed to clobber data). these rules make very little sense, but that's how it goes..
2011-09-04fix some fmemopen behaviorsRich Felker-4/+7
read should not be allowed past "current size". append mode should write at "current size", not buffer size. null termination should not be written except when "current size" grows.
2011-09-04handle pending cancellation when enabling async cancellationRich Felker-0/+1
this is not strictly required by the standard, but without it, there is a race condition where cancellation arriving just before async cancellation is enabled might not be acted upon. it is impossible for a conforming application to work around this race condition since calling pthread_testcancel after setting async cancellation mode is not allowed (pthread_testcancel is not specified to be async-cancel-safe). thus the implementation should be responsible for eliminating the race, from a quality-of-implementation standpoint.
2011-09-04fmemopen: fix eof handling, hopefully right this timeRich Felker-3/+4
2011-09-04fmemopen fixesRich Felker-1/+3
disallow seek past end of buffer (per posix) fix position accounting to include data buffered for read don't set eof flag when no data was requested
2011-09-04memstreams: fix incorrect handling of file pos > current sizeRich Felker-4/+4
the addition is safe and cannot overflow because both operands are positive when considered as signed quantities.
2011-09-04optimize seek function for memory streamsRich Felker-24/+6
2011-09-04fix twos complement overflow bug in mem streams boundary checkRich Felker-2/+2
the expression -off is not safe in case off is the most-negative value. instead apply - to base which is known to be non-negative and bounded within sanity.
2011-09-03implement fmemopenRich Felker-18/+67
testing so far has been minimal. may need further work.
2011-09-03fix some length calculations in memory streamsRich Felker-3/+3
2011-09-03implement open_wmemstreamRich Felker-0/+96
not heavily tested, but it seems to be correct, including the odd behavior that seeking is in terms of wide character count. this precludes any simple buffering, so we just make the stream unbuffered.
2011-09-03fix RTLD_NEXT on x86_64Rich Felker-1/+1
the return address was being truncated to 32 bits, preventing the dlsym code from determining which module contains the calling code.
2011-09-03implement open_memstreamRich Felker-0/+95
this is the first attempt, and may have bugs. only minimal testing has been performed.
2011-09-02fix missing prototypes/wrong signature for psiginfo, psignalRich Felker-1/+4
2011-08-27fix broken FD_* macros on 64-bit targetsRich Felker-3/+3
1 is too small if int is 32-bit but unsigned long is 64-bit. be explicit and use 1UL.
2011-08-23bring back ___environ symbol (3 underscores)Rich Felker-0/+1
its existence doesn't hurt anything, and dynamic-linked binaries using previous versions of musl were wrongly binding to it instead of __environ.
2011-08-23use new a_crash() asm to optimize double-free handler.Rich Felker-2/+2
gcc generates extremely bad code (7 byte immediate mov) for the old null pointer write approach. it should be generating something like "xor %eax,%eax ; mov %al,(%eax)". in any case, using a dedicated crashing opcode accomplishes the same thing in one byte.
2011-08-23security hardening: ensure suid programs have valid stdin/out/errRich Felker-15/+52
this behavior (opening fds 0-2 for a suid program) is explicitly allowed (but not required) by POSIX to protect badly-written suid programs from clobbering files they later open. this commit does add some cost in startup code, but the availability of auxv and the security flag will be useful elsewhere in the future. in particular auxv is needed for static-linked vdso support, which is still waiting to be committed (sorry nik!)
2011-08-16in pathconf, -1, not 0, means unsupported.. syncio presumably works, too.Rich Felker-3/+3
2011-08-16fix bogus pathconf result for file size bitsRich Felker-1/+1
2011-08-16partially working strptimeRich Felker-148/+149
it's missing at least: - derived fields - week numbers - short year (without century) support - locale modifiers
2011-08-16ldso: move the suid/secure check code closer to env/auxv processingRich Felker-7/+7
this does not change behavior, but the idea is to avoid letting other code build up between these two points, whereby the environment variables might get used before security it checked.
2011-08-16honor AT_SECURE aux vector flagRich Felker-2/+2
2011-08-16RTLD_NEXT supportRich Felker-3/+32
the asm wrapper is needed to get the return address without compiler-specific extensions.
2011-08-16LD_PRELOAD supportRich Felker-0/+20
2011-08-15simplify and improve double-free checkRich Felker-2/+2
a valid mmapped block will have an even (actually aligned) "extra" field, whereas a freed chunk on the heap will always have an in-use neighbor. this fixes a potential bug if mmap ever allocated memory below the main program/brk (in which case it would be wrongly-detected as a double-free by the old code) and allows the double-free check to work for donated memory outside of the brk area (or, in the future, secondary heap zones if support for their creation is added).
2011-08-14typo in macro definitions for x86_64Rich Felker-1/+1
2011-08-14macro for pthread_equalRich Felker-1/+3
no sense bloating apps with a function call for an equality comparison...
2011-08-13fix missing include in last commitRich Felker-0/+1
2011-08-13fix clock() functionRich Felker-2/+7
it previously was returning the pseudo-monotonic-realtime clock returned by times() rather than process cputime. it also violated C namespace by pulling in times(). we now use clock_gettime() if available because times() has ridiculously bad resolution. still provide a fallback for ancient kernels without clock_gettime.
2011-08-12implement forkallRich Felker-0/+67
this is a "nonstandard" function that was "rejected" by POSIX, but nonetheless had its behavior documented in the POSIX rationale for fork. it's present on solaris and possibly some other systems, and duplicates the whole calling process, not just a single thread. glibc does not have this function. it should not be used in programs intending to be portable, but may be useful for testing, checkpointing, etc. and it's an interesting (and quite small) example of the usefulness of the __synccall framework originally written to work around deficiencies in linux's setuid syscall.
2011-08-12pthread and synccall cleanup, new __synccall_wait opRich Felker-7/+13
fix up clone signature to match the actual behavior. the new __syncall_wait function allows a __synccall callback to wait for other threads to continue without returning, so that it can resume action after the caller finishes. this interface could be made significantly more general/powerful with minimal effort, but i'll wait to do that until it's actually useful for something.
2011-08-12more efficient signal blocking for timer threadsRich Felker-4/+4
due to the barrier, it's safe just to block signals in the new thread, rather than blocking and unblocking in the parent thread.
2011-08-11normal exit from timer thread should run dtors, restore cancel stateRich Felker-1/+1
2011-08-11block signals in timer threadsRich Felker-0/+4
if a timer thread leaves signals unblocked, any future attempt by the main thread to prevent the process from being terminated by blocking signals will fail, since the signal can still be delivered to the timer thread.
2011-08-07condition variable signal/bcast need not wake unless there are waitersRich Felker-4/+4
2011-08-07use weak aliase rather than weak reference for vdso clock_gettimeRich Felker-8/+12
this works around pcc's lack of working support for weak references, and in principle is nice because it gets us back to the stage where the only weak symbol feature we use is weak aliases, nothing else. having fewer dependencies on fancy linker features is a good thing.
2011-08-07simplify unified timed wait code, drop support for newer methodRich Felker-31/+28
the new absolute-time-based wait kernelside was hard to get right and basically just code duplication. it could only improve "performance" when waiting, and even then, the improvement was just slight drop in cpu usage during a wait. actually, with vdso clock_gettime, the "old" way will be even faster than the "new" way if the time has already expired, since it will not invoke any syscalls. it can determine entirely in userspace that it needs to return ETIMEDOUT.
2011-08-07add fast path for normal mutexes back to pthread_mutex_lockRich Felker-0/+3
2011-08-07close should not be cancellable after "failing" with EINTRRich Felker-1/+2
normally we allow cancellation to be acted upon when a syscall fails with EINTR, since there is no useful status to report to the caller in this case, and the signal that caused the interruption was almost surely the cancellation request, anyway. however, unlike all other syscalls, close has actually performed its resource-deallocation function whenever it returns, even when it returned an error. if we allow cancellation at this point, the caller has no way of informing the program that the file descriptor was closed, and the program may later try to close the file descriptor again, possibly closing a different, newly-opened file. the workaround looks ugly (special-casing one syscall), but it's actually the case that close is the one and only syscall (at least among cancellation points) with this ugly property.
2011-08-06ensure the compiler does not move around thread-register-based readsRich Felker-2/+2
if gcc decided to move this across a conditional that checks validity of the thread register, an invalid thread-register-based read could be performed and raise sigsegv.
2011-08-06simplify multi-threaded errno, eliminate useless function pointerRich Felker-12/+5
2011-08-06use weak aliases rather than function pointers to simplify some codeRich Felker-9/+20
2011-08-05fix off-by-one bug in siglongjmp that caused unpredictable behaviorRich Felker-1/+1
if saved, signal mask would not be restored unless some low signals were masked. if not saved, signal mask could be wrongly restored to uninitialized values. in any, wrong mask would be restored. i believe this function was written for a very old version of the jmp_buf structure which did not contain a final 0 field for compatibility with siglongjmp, and never updated...
2011-08-03further debloat cancellation handlersRich Felker-17/+30
cleanup push and pop are also no-ops if pthread_exit is not reachable. this can make a big difference for library code which needs to protect itself against cancellation, but which is unlikely to actually be used in programs with threads/cancellation.
2011-08-03missed detail in cancellation bloat fixRich Felker-1/+1
