new socket option so application can give advice about routing path quality of connected udp sockets, added in linux commit a87cb3e48ee86d29868d3f59cfb9ce1a8fa63314
2016-06-09add preadv2 and pwritev2 syscall numbers for linux v4.6Szabolcs Nagy-0/+22
the syscalls take an additional flag argument, they were added in commit f17d8b35452cab31a70d224964cd583fb2845449 and a RWF_HIPRI priority hint flag was added to linux/fs.h in 97be7ebe53915af504fb491fb99f064c7cf3cb09. the syscall is not allocated for microblaze and sh yet.
2016-05-23fix a64l undefined behavior on ILP32 archs, wrong results on LP64 archsRich Felker-3/+6
the difference of pointers is a signed type ptrdiff_t; if it is only 32-bit, left-shifting it by 30 bits produces undefined behavior. cast the difference to an appropriate unsigned type, uint32_t, before shifting to avoid this. the a64l function is specified to return a signed 32-bit result in type long. as noted in the bug report by Ed Schouten, converting implicitly from uint32_t only produces the desired result when long is a 32-bit type. since the computation has to be done in unsigned arithmetic to avoid overflow, simply cast the result to int32_t. further, POSIX leaves the behavior on invalid input unspecified but not undefined, so we should not take the difference between the potentially-null result of strchr and the base pointer without first checking the result. the simplest behavior is just returning the partial conversion already performed in this case, so do that.
2016-05-22fix undefined pointer arithmetic in CMSG_NXTHDR macroRich Felker-3/+3
previously, the only way the stopping condition could be met with correct lengths in the headers invoked undefined behavior, adding sizeof(struct cmsghdr) beyond the end of the cmsg buffer. instead, compute and compare sizes rather than pointers.
2016-05-22fix the use of uninitialized value in regcompSzabolcs Nagy-0/+2
the num_submatches field of some ast nodes was not initialized in tre_add_tag_{left,right}, but was accessed later. this was a benign bug since the uninitialized values were never used (these values are created during tre_add_tags and copied around during tre_expand_ast where they are also used in computations, but nothing in the final tnfa depends on them).

2016-05-04fix redundant processing of --build flag in configure scriptLeMay, Michael-1/+1
The --build flag is listed in two case statement entries in configure, which causes the second entry to be ignored. This patch removes it from the first entry. Signed-off-by: Michael LeMay <>
2016-05-04fix incorrect protocol name and number for egpAndrew Kelley-1/+1
previously if you called getprotobyname("egp") you would get NULL because \008 is invalid octal and so the protocol id was interpreted as 0 and name as "8egp".
2016-04-29follow standard configure behavior for cross compile prefixRich Felker-1/+13
the standard configure interface, which our configure script tries to implement, identifies cross compiling (build != host) and searches for the properly-prefixed cross tools. our script was not doing that, forcing users to explicitly provide either CC or a CROSS_COMPILE tool prefix, and the more common choice, just providing CC, was incomplete because the Makefile would still invoke the native ar and ranlib programs. this happened to work when building on ELF-based systems with GNU binutils, but could easily fail when cross-compiling from dissimilar systems. like before, and like the standard configure behavior, an explicit CC or CROSS_COMPILE variable on the command line or in the environment overrides the automatic prefixing.
2016-04-28update COPYRIGHT file to clarify that permissions apply for all filesRich Felker-14/+23
these changes are the outcome of a long mailing list thread that took place March 2016, "musl licensing". among minor other issues, prospective users were not confident that the whole-project MIT license would grant permission for files to which the COPYRIGHT file expressed a belief that copyright not apply, if it turned out that these files were actually subject to copyright. in accordance with the original intent of applying a permissive license to the project, which was that license issues not be an obstacle to use, the text which was causing confusion is removed. no new claims of copyright are made, but new text is added to clarify that the grant of permissions applies to all files, and an explicit grant of permission to use public headers and crt files without attribution has been made. this patch was reviewed and approved by all substantial contributors to the affected files: Bobby Bingham, John Spencer (rofl0r), Nicholas J. Kain, Rich Felker, Richard Pennington, Stefan Kristiansson, and Szabolcs Nagy.
2016-04-26fix FILE buffer underflow in ungetwcRich Felker-3/+3
commit 7e816a6487932cbb3cb71d94b609e50e81f4e5bf (version 1.1.11 release cycle) moved the code that performs wchar_t to multibyte conversion across code that used the resulting length in bytes, thereby breaking the unget buffer space check in ungetwc and clobbering up to three bytes below the start of the buffer. for allocated FILEs (all read-enabled FILEs except stdin), the underflow clobbers at most the FILE-specific locale pointer. no stores are performed through this pointer, but subsequent loads may result in a crash or mismatching encoding rule (UTF-8 multibyte vs byte-based). for stdin, the buffer lies in .bss and the underflow may clobber another object. in practice, for the adjacent object seems to be stderr's buffer, which is completely unused, but this could vary with linking options, or when static linking. applications which do not attempt to use more than one character of ungetwc pushback, or which do not use ungetwc, are not affected.
2016-04-25fix thread structure/dtv-pointer corruption on powerpcRich Felker-0/+5
per the powerpc psabi, offset 4 of the stack at call time belongs to the callee and is used for spilling lr (return address). in addition, offset 0 on the stack must contain a pointer to the previous stack frame, or a null pointer for the initial stack frame of a thread. __clone failed to setup any stack frame on the new thread's stack, thereby allowing the start function it called to clobber offset 4 of the new thread's struct __pthread, which contains the dtv pointer. add code to setup a proper stack frame and align the stack pointer to a multiple of 16 (also an abi requirement) if it was not already aligned.

2016-04-18add mips n32 port (ILP32 ABI for mips64)Rich Felker-0/+2375
based on patch submitted by Jaydeep Patil, with minor changes.
2016-04-03add support for mips and mips64 r6 isaRich Felker-22/+60
mips32r6 and mips64r6 are actually new isas at both the asm source and opcode levels (pre-r6 code cannot run on r6) and thus need to be treated as a new subarch. the following changes are made, some of which yield code generation improvements for non-r6 targets too: - add subarch logic in configure script and reloc.h files for dynamic linker name. - suppress use of .set mips2 asm directives (used to allow mips2 atomic instructions on baseline mips1 builds; the kernel has to emulate them on mips1) except when actually needed. they cause wrong instruction encodings on r6, and pessimize inlining on at least some compilers. - only hard-code sync instruction encoding on mips1. - use "ZC" constraint instead of "m" constraint for llsc memory operands on r6, where the ll/sc instructions no longer accept full 16-bit offsets. - only hard-code rdhwr instruction encoding with .word on targets (pre-r2) where it may need trap-and-emulate by the kernel. otherwise, just use the instruction mnemonic, and allow an arbitrary destination register to be used.
2016-04-01fix read past end of haystack buffer for short needles in memmemRich Felker-0/+1
the two/three/four byte memmem specializations are not prepared to handle haystacks shorter than the needle; they unconditionally read at least up to the needle length and subtract from the haystack length. if the haystack is shorter, the remaining haystack length underflows and produces an unbounded search which will eventually either crash or find a spurious match. the top-level memmem function attempted to avoid this case already by checking for haystack shorter than needle, but it failed to re-check after using memchr to remove the maximal prefix not containing the first byte of the needle.
2016-03-29fix regression disabling use of pause instruction for x86 a_spinRich Felker-3/+3
commits e24984efd5c6ac5ea8e6cb6cd914fa8435d458bc and 16b55298dc4b6a54d287d7494e04542667ef8861 inadvertently disabled the a_spin implementations for i386, x86_64, and x32 by defining a macro named a_pause instead of a_spin. this should not have caused any functional regression, but it inhibited cpu relaxation while spinning for locks. bug reported by George Kulakowski.
2016-03-28fix undefined pointer comparison in stdio-internal __toreadRich Felker-1/+1
the comparison f->wpos > f->buf has undefined behavior when f->wpos is a null pointer, despite the intuition (and actual compiler behavior, for all known compilers) being that NULL > ptr is false for all valid pointers ptr. the purpose of the comparison is to determine if the write buffer is non-empty, and the idiom used elsewhere for that is comparison against f->wbase, which is either a null pointer when not writing, or equal to f->buf when writing. in the former case, both f->wpos and f->wbase are null; in the latter they are both non-null and point into the same array.

2016-03-19add MADV_FREE madvise command from linux v4.5Szabolcs Nagy-0/+1
allows the os to free the marked pages lazily on memory pressure. expected to increase malloc performance. new in linux commit 854e9ed09dedf0c19ac8640e91bcc74bc3f9e5c9
2016-03-19add EPOLLEXCLUSIVE epoll flag from linux v4.5Szabolcs Nagy-0/+1
new flag for exclusive wakeup mode when an event source fd is attached to multiple epoll fds but they should not all receive the events. new in linux commit df0108c5da561c66c333bb46bfe3c1fc65905898
2016-03-19add SO_ATTACH_REUSEPORT_[CE]BPF socket options from linux v4.5Szabolcs Nagy-1/+2
new socket options for setting classic or extended BPF program for sockets in a SO_REUSEPORT group. added in linux commit 538950a1b7527a0a52ccd9337e3fcd304f027f13
2016-03-19add IPV6_HDRINCL socket option from linux v4.5Szabolcs Nagy-0/+1
new in linux commit 715f504b118998c41a2079a17e16bf5a8a114885 same as IP_HDRINCL but for SOL_IPV6 sockets.
2016-03-19add copy_file_range syscall numbers from linux v4.5Szabolcs Nagy-0/+18
it was introduced for offloading copying between regular files in linux commit 29732938a6289a15e907da234d6692a2ead71855 (microblaze and sh does not yet have the syscall number.)
2016-03-19mips64: add recent linux syscall numbersSzabolcs Nagy-0/+6
add userfaultfd, membarrier and mlock2 system call numbers.
2016-03-18fix outdated pathnames in COPYRIGHT fileRich Felker-3/+3
2016-03-18deduplicate bits/mman.hSzabolcs Nagy-617/+84
currently five targets use the same mman.h constants and the rest share most constants too, so move them to sys/mman.h before the bits/mman.h include where the differences can be corrected by redefinition of the macros. this fixes two minor bugs: POSIX_MADV_DONTNEED was wrong on most targets (it should be the same as MADV_DONTNEED), and sh defined the x86-only MAP_32BIT mmap flag.
2016-03-16fix padding string formats to width in wide printf variantsRich Felker-4/+4
the idiom fprintf(f, "%.*s", n, "") was wrongly used in vfwprintf as a means of producing n spaces; instead it produces no output. the correct form is fprintf(f, "%*s", n, ""), using width instead of precision, since for %s the later is a maximum rather than a minimum.
2016-03-11correct pointer types for a_ll_p and a_sc_p primitives on mips64Rich Felker-4/+4
these changes should not affect generated code, but they reflect that the underlying objects operated on by a_cas_p are supposed to have type volatile void *, not volatile long. in theory a compiler could treat the effective type mismatch in the "m" memory operands as undefined behavior.
2016-03-11make mips64 a_sc_p atomic primitive's asm constraints work with clangRich Felker-1/+1
apparently clang does not accept matching-register input and output constraints that differ in size (32-bit vs 64-bit). based on patch by Jaydeep Patil.
2016-03-06make configure check for unsupported (SPE) powerpc hard-float modelsRich Felker-0/+2
the SPE ABI may be compatible with soft-float, but actually making it work requires some additional work, so for now it's best to make sure broken builds don't happen.
2016-03-06add powerpc soft-float supportFelix Fietkau-35/+65
Some PowerPC CPUs (e.g. Freescale MPC85xx) have a completely different instruction set for floating point operations (SPE). Executing regular PowerPC floating point instructions results in "Illegal instruction" errors. Make it possible to run these devices in soft-float mode.
2016-03-06env: avoid leaving dangling pointers in __env_mapAlexander Monakov-0/+1
This is the minimal fix for __putenv leaving a pointer to freed heap storage in __env_map array, which could later on lead to errors such as double-free.
2016-03-06update documentation files for mips64 portRich Felker-0/+11
2016-03-06add mips64 portRich Felker-1/+2546
patch by Mahesh Bodapati and Jaydeep Patil of Imagination Technologies.
2016-03-06generalize mips-specific reloc code not to hard-code sym/type encodingRich Felker-1/+3
this change is made in preparation for adding the mips64 port, which needs a 64-bit (and mips64-specific) form of the R_INFO macro, but it's a better abstraction anyway. based on part of the mips64 port patch by Mahesh Bodapati and Jaydeep Patil of Imagination Technologies.
2016-03-04math: fix expf(-NAN) and exp2f(-NAN) to return -NAN instead of 0Szabolcs Nagy-0/+4
expf(-NAN) was treated as expf(-large) which unconditionally returns +0, so special case +-NAN. reported by Petr Hosek.
2016-03-02add sched_getcpu vDSO supportNathan Zadoks-0/+33
This brings the call to an actually usable speed. Quick unscientific benchmark: 14ns : 102ns :: vDSO : syscall
2016-03-02add sched_getcpuNathan Zadoks-0/+14
This is a GNU extension, but a fairly minor one, for a system call that otherwise has no libc wrapper.
2016-03-02fix ^* at the start of a complete BRESzabolcs Nagy-0/+4
This is a workaround to treat * as literal * at the start of a BRE. Ideally ^ would be treated as an anchor at the start of any BRE subexpression and similarly $ would be an anchor at the end of any subexpression. This is not required by the standard and hard to do with the current code, but it's the existing practice. If it is changed, * should be treated as literal after such anchor as well.
2016-03-02fix * at the start of a BRE subexpressionSzabolcs Nagy-4/+0
commit 7eaa76fc2e7993582989d3838b1ac32dd8abac09 made * invalid at the start of a BRE subexpression, but it should be accepted as literal * there according to the standard. This patch does not fix subexpressions starting with ^*.
2016-03-02explicitly include stdio.h to get EOF definition needed by wctobMichael Meeuwisse-0/+1
2016-03-02handle non-matching address family entries in hosts fileRich Felker-3/+11
name_from_hosts failed to account for the possibility of an address family error from name_from_numeric, wrongly counting such a return as success and using the uninitialized address data as part of the results passed up to the caller. non-matching address family entries cannot simply be ignored or results would be inconsistent with respect to whether AF_UNSPEC or a specific address family is queried. instead, record that a non-matching entry was seen, and fail the lookup with EAI_NONAME of no matching-family entries are found.
2016-02-23make aarch64 atomic_arch.h report that it defines pointer-sized ll/scRich Felker-0/+2
at present this is done only for consistency, since this file defines its own a_cas_p rather than using the new generic one from atomic.h added in commit 225f6a6b5b7173b6655e4f5d49b5b9fea70bf3bb. these definitions may however be useful if we ever need to add other pointer-sized atomic operations.
