2014-06-06implement %y and %C specifiers in strptimeTimo Teräs-4/+10
2014-06-06avoid invalid use of va_arg in openRich Felker-5/+8
reading the variadic mode argument is only valid when the O_CREAT flag is present. this probably does not matter, but is needed for formal correctness, and could affect LTO or other full-program analysis.
2014-06-06add O_CLOEXEC fallback for open and related functionsRich Felker-1/+9
since there is no easy way to detect whether open honored or ignored the O_CLOEXEC flag, the optimal solution to providing a fallback is simply to make the fcntl syscall to set the close-on-exec flag immediately after open returns.
2014-06-06optimize SOCK_CLOEXEC fallback for socket functionRich Felker-2/+2
the fcntl function is heavy, so make the syscall directly instead. also, avoid the code size and runtime overhead of querying the old flags, since it's reasonable to assume nothing will be set on a newly-created socket. this code is only used on old kernels which lack proper atomic close-on-exec support, so future changes that might invalidate such an assumption do not need to be considered.
2014-06-06add SOCK_CLOEXEC fallback for socketpair on old kernelsRich Felker-1/+19
as usual, this is non-atomic, but better than producing an error or failing to set the close-on-exec flag at all.
2014-06-06implement dn_comp RFC 1035 domain name compressionSzabolcs Nagy-1/+102
the input name is validated, the other parameters are assumed to be valid (the list of already compressed names are not checked for infinite reference loops or out-of-bound offsets). names are handled case-sensitively for now.
2014-06-06accept trailing . and empty domain namesSzabolcs Nagy-12/+16
trailing . should be accepted in domain name strings by convention (RFC 1034), host name lookup accepts "." but rejects empty "", res_* interfaces also accept empty name following existing practice.
2014-06-06add vdso clock_gettime acceleration support to i386Rich Felker-0/+4
2014-06-06fix fd leak in tmpfile when the fdopen operation failsRich Felker-1/+2
this condition could only happen due to malloc failure. the fdopen operation is also moved to take place after the unlink to minimize the window during which a link to the file exists in the directory table.
2014-06-05fix the domain name length limit checksSzabolcs Nagy-8/+8
A domain name is at most 255 bytes long (RFC 1035), but the string representation is two bytes smaller so the strlen maximum is 253.
2014-06-05fix multiple validation issues in dns response label parsingSzabolcs Nagy-4/+6
Due to an error introduced in commit fcc522c92335783293ac19df318415cd97fbf66b, checking of the remaining output buffer space was not performed correctly, allowing malformed input to write past the end of the buffer. In addition, the loop detection logic failed to account for the possibility of infinite loops with no output, which would hang the function. The output size is now limited more strictly so only names with valid length are accepted.
2014-06-05fix missing function declarations in refactored ip literal parsing codeRich Felker-0/+1
2014-06-04add support for reverse port lookups from services file to getnameinfoRich Felker-4/+35
this also affects the legacy getservbyport family, which uses getnameinfo as its backend.
2014-06-04add support for reverse name lookups from hosts file to getnameinfoRich Felker-50/+122
this also affects the legacy gethostbyaddr family, which uses getnameinfo as its backend. some other minor changes associated with the refactoring of source files are also made; in particular, the resolv.conf parser now uses the same code that's used elsewhere to handle ip literals, so as a side effect it can now accept a scope id for nameserver addressed with link-local scope.
2014-06-04remove some dummy "ent" function aliases that duplicated real onesRich Felker-8/+0
the service and protocol functions are defined also in other files, and the protocol ones are actually non-nops elsewhere, so the weak definitions in ent.c could have prevented the strong definitions from getting pulled in and used in some static programs.
2014-06-04simplify vasprintf implementationRich Felker-14/+1
the old implementation preallocated a buffer in order to try to avoid calling vsnprintf more than once. not only did this potentially lead to memory fragmentation from trimming with realloc; it also pulled in realloc/free, which otherwise might not be needed in a static linked program.
2014-06-04add support for ipv6 scope_id to getaddrinfo and getnameinfoRich Felker-9/+57
for all address types, a scope_id specified as a decimal value is accepted. for addresses with link-local scope, a string containing the interface name is also accepted. some changes are made to error handling to avoid unwanted fallbacks in the case where the scope_id is invalid: if an earlier name lookup backend fails with an error rather than simply "0 results", this failure now suppresses any later attempts with other backends. in getnameinfo, a light "itoa" type function is added for generating decimal scope_id results, and decimal port strings for services are also generated using this function now so as not to pull in the dependency on snprintf. in netdb.h, a definition for the NI_NUMERICSCOPE flag is added. this is required by POSIX (it was previously missing) and needed to allow callers to suppress interface-name lookups.
2014-06-03fix if_nametoindex return value when interface does not existRich Felker-1/+1
the return value is unsigned, so negative results for "errors" do not make sense; 0 is the value reserved for when the interface name does not exist.
2014-06-03fix negative response and non-response handling for dns queriesRich Felker-1/+4
previously, all failures to obtain at least one address were treated as nonexistant names (EAI_NONAME). this failed to account for the possibility of transient failures (no response at all, or a response with rcode of 2, server failure) or permanent failures that do not indicate the nonexistence of the requested name. only an rcode of 3 should be treated as an indication of nonexistence.
2014-06-03fix some validation checks in dns response parsing codeRich Felker-2/+3
since the buffer passed always has an actual size of 512 bytes, the maximum possible response packet size, no out-of-bounds access was possible; however, reading past the end of the valid portion of the packet could cause the parser to attempt to process junk as answer content.
2014-06-02fix incorrect end pointer in some cases when wcsrtombs stops earlyRich Felker-7/+15
when wcsrtombs stopped due to hitting zero remaining space in the output buffer, it was wrongly clearing the position pointer as if it had completed the conversion successfully. this commit rearranges the code somewhat to make a clear separation between the cases of ending due to running out of output buffer space, and ending due to reaching the end of input or an illegal sequence in the input. the new branches have been arranged with the hope of optimizing more common cases, too.
2014-06-02remove cruft from old resolver and numeric ip parsingRich Felker-79/+49
the old resolver code used a function __ipparse which contained the logic for inet_addr and inet_aton, which is needed in getaddrinfo. this was phased out in the resolver overhaul in favor of directly using inet_aton and inet_pton as appropriate. this commit cleans up some stuff that was left behind.
2014-06-02switch standard resolver functions to use the new dns backendRich Felker-309/+145
this is the third phase of the "resolver overhaul" project. this commit removes all of the old dns code, and switches the __lookup_name backend (used by getaddrinfo, etc.) and the getnameinfo function to use the newly implemented __res_mkquery and __res_msend interfaces. for parsing the results, a new callback-based __dns_parse function, based on __dns_get_rr from the old dns code, is used.
2014-06-02fix uninitialized variable in new __res_msend dns functionRich Felker-0/+1
2014-06-02implement new dns backend, res_send and other legacy resolver functionsRich Felker-18/+263
this is the second phase of the "resolver overhaul" project. the key additions in this commit are the __res_msend and __res_mkquery functions, which have been factored so as to provide a backend for both the legacy res_* functions and the standard getaddrinfo and getnameinfo functions. the latter however are still using the old backend code; there is code duplication which still needs to be removed, and this will be the next phase of the resolver overhaul. __res_msend is derived from the old __dns_doqueries function, but generalized to send arbitrary caller-provided packets in parallel rather than producing the parallel queries itself. this allows it to be used (completely trivially) as a backend for res_send. the factored-out query generation code, with slightly more generality, is now part of __res_mkquery.
2014-06-02add ipsec and tunneling protocols to getprotoent-family functionsTimo Teräs-0/+4
iptables and ipsec-tools among others require these to function properly.
2014-06-02fix off-by-one in checking hostname length in new resolver backendRich Felker-2/+2
this bug was introduced in the recent resolver overhaul commits. it likely had visible symptoms. these were probably limited to wrongly accepting truncated versions of over-long names (vs rejecting them), as opposed to stack-based overflows or anything more severe, but no extensive checks were made. there have been no releases where this bug was present.
2014-06-01improve getservbyname_r using new resolver backendRich Felker-22/+16
now that host and service lookup have been separated in the backend, there's no need for service lookup functions to pull in the host lookup code. moreover, dynamic allocation is no longer needed, so this function should now be async-signal-safe. it's also significantly smaller. one change in getservbyname is also made: knowing that getservbyname_r needs only two character pointers in the caller-provided buffer, some wasted bss can be avoided.
2014-06-01improve gethostbyname2_r using new resolver backendRich Felker-35/+22
these changes reduce the size of the function somewhat and remove many of its dependencies, including free. in principle it should now be async-signal-safe, but this has not been verified in detail. minor changes to error handling are also made.
2014-05-31refactor getaddrinfo and add support for most remaining featuresRich Felker-228/+360
this is the first phase of the "resolver overhaul" project. conceptually, the results of getaddrinfo are a direct product of a list of address results and a list of service results. the new code makes this explicit by computing these lists separately and combining the results. this adds support for services that have both tcp and udp versions, where the caller has not specified which it wants, and eliminates a number of duplicate code paths which were all producing the final output addrinfo structures, but in subtly different ways, making it difficult to implement any of the features which were missing. in addition to the above benefits, the refactoring allows for legacy functions like gethostbyname to be implemented without using the getaddrinfo function itself. such changes to the legacy functions have not yet been made, however. further improvements include matching of service alias names from /etc/services (previously only the primary name was supported), returning multiple results from /etc/hosts (previously only the first matching line was honored), and support for the AI_V4MAPPED and AI_ALL flags. features which remain unimplemented are IDN translations (encoding non-ASCII hostnames for DNS lookup) and the AI_ADDRCONFIG flag. at this point, the DNS-based name resolving code is still based on the old interfaces in __dns.c, albeit somewhat simpler in its use of them. there may be some dead code which could already be removed, but changes to this layer will be a later phase of the resolver overhaul.
2014-05-30fix POSIX namespace pollution in sys/types.hSzabolcs Nagy-10/+6
int8_t, u_int8_t, etc types are moved under _BSD_SOURCE
2014-05-30use cleaner code for handling float rounding in vfprintfSzabolcs Nagy-3/+1
CONCAT(0x1p,LDBL_MANT_DIG) is not safe outside of libc, use 2/LDBL_EPSILON instead. fix was proposed by Morten Welinder.
2014-05-30update netinet/in.h to match the current kernel uapiSzabolcs Nagy-1/+21
from linux/in.h and linux/in6.h uapi headers the following missing socket options were added: IP_NODEFRAG - used with customized ipv4 headers IPV6_RECVPATHMTU - for ipv6 path mtu IPV6_PATHMTU - for ipv6 path mtu IPV6_DONTFRAG - for ipv6 path mtu IPV6_ADDR_PREFERENCES - RFC5014 Source Address Selection IPV6_MINHOPCOUNT - RFC5082 Generalized TTL Security Mechanism IPV6_ORIGDSTADDR - used by tproxy IPV6_RECVORIGDSTADDR - used by tproxy IPV6_TRANSPARENT - used by tproxy IPV6_UNICAST_IF - ipv6 version of IP_UNICAST_IF and socket option values: IP_PMTUDISC_OMIT - value for IP_MTU_DISCOVER option, new in linux 3.14 IPV6_PMTUDISC_OMIT - same for IPV6_MTU_DISCOVER IPV6_PMTUDISC_INTERFACE - ipv6 version of IP_PMTUDISC_INTERFACE IPV6_PREFER_* - flags for IPV6_ADDR_PREFERENCES not added: ipv6 flow info and flow label related definitions. (it's unclear if libc should define these and namespace polluting type name is involved so they are not provided for now)
2014-05-30add SO_BPF_EXTENSIONS socket optionSzabolcs Nagy-0/+1
this was introduced to query BPF extension support with getsockopt in linux 3.14, commit ea02f9411d9faa3553ed09ce0ec9f00ceae9885e
2014-05-30add sched_{get,set}attr syscall numbers and SCHED_DEADLINE macroSzabolcs Nagy-0/+31
linux 3.14 introduced sched_getattr and sched_setattr syscalls in commit d50dde5a10f305253cbc3855307f608f8a3c5f73 and the related SCHED_DEADLINE scheduling policy in commit aab03e05e8f7e26f51dee792beddcb5cca9215a5 but struct sched_attr "extended scheduling parameters data structure" is not yet exported to userspace (necessary for using the syscalls) so related uapi definitions are not added yet.
2014-05-30fix breakage from recent syscall commits due to missing errno macrosRich Felker-0/+3
2014-05-30fix for broken kernel side RLIM_INFINITY on mipsSzabolcs Nagy-3/+40
On 32 bit mips the kernel uses -1UL/2 to mark RLIM_INFINITY (and this is the definition in the userspace api), but since it is in the middle of the valid range of limits and limits are often compared with relational operators, various kernel side logic is broken if larger than -1UL/2 limits are used. So we truncate the limits to -1UL/2 in get/setrlimit and prlimit. Even if the kernel side logic consistently treated -1UL/2 as greater than any other limit value, there wouldn't be any clean workaround that allowed using large limits: * using -1UL/2 as RLIM_INFINITY in userspace would mean different infinity value for get/setrlimt and prlimit (where infinity is always -1ULL) and userspace logic could break easily (just like the kernel is broken now) and more special case code would be needed for mips. * translating -1UL/2 kernel side value to -1ULL in userspace would mean that -1UL/2 limit cannot be set (eg. -1UL/2+1 had to be passed to the kernel instead).
2014-05-30break down coarse-grained 64-bit-off_t syscall remappingsRich Felker-4/+16
using the existence of SYS_stat64 as the condition for remapping other related syscalls is no longer valid, since new archs that omit the old syscalls will not have SYS_stat or SYS_stat64, but still potentially need SYS_fstat and others remapped. it would probably be possible to get by with just one or two extra conditionals, but just breaking them all down into separate conditions is robust and not significantly heavier for the preprocessor.
2014-05-30additional fixes for linux kernel apis with old syscalls removedRich Felker-0/+9
2014-05-30fix sendfile syscall to use 64-bit off_tRich Felker-0/+5
somehow the remapping of this syscall to the 64-bit version was overlooked. the issue was found, and patch provided, by Stefan Kristiansson. presumably the reason this bug was not caught earlier is that the syscall takes a pointer to off_t rather than a value, so on little-endian systems, everything appears to work as long as the offset value fits in the low 31 bits. on big-endian systems, though, sendfile was presumably completely non-functional.
2014-05-29support linux kernel apis (new archs) with old syscalls removedRich Felker-29/+267
such archs are expected to omit definitions of the SYS_* macros for syscalls their kernels lack from arch/$ARCH/bits/syscall.h. the preprocessor is then able to select the an appropriate implementation for affected functions. two basic strategies are used on a case-by-case basis: where the old syscalls correspond to deprecated library-level functions, the deprecated functions have been converted to wrappers for the modern function, and the modern function has fallback code (omitted at the preprocessor level on new archs) to make use of the old syscalls if the new syscall fails with ENOSYS. this also improves functionality on older kernels and eliminates the incentive to program with deprecated library-level functions for the sake of compatibility with older kernels. in other situations where the old syscalls correspond to library-level functions which are not deprecated but merely lack some new features, such as the *at functions, the old syscalls are still used on archs which support them. this may change at some point in the future if or when fallback code is added to the new functions to make them usable (possibly with reduced functionality) on old kernels.
2014-05-29remove useless synchronization in exit and quick_exitRich Felker-11/+0
calling exit more than once invokes undefined behavior. in some cases it's desirable to detect undefined behavior and diagnose it via a predictable crash, but the code here was silently covering up an uncommon case (exit from more than one thread) and turning a much more common case (recursive calls to exit) into a permanent hang.
2014-05-27fix missing declaration of strcpy in implementation of tmpnamRich Felker-0/+1
2014-05-27overhaul tmpfile, tmpnam, and tempnam functionsRich Felker-55/+48
these all now use the shared __randname function internally, rather than duplicating logic for producing a random name. incorrect usage of the access syscall (which works with real uid/gid, not effective) has been removed, along with unnecessary heavy dependencies like snprintf.
2014-05-27fix sys_open macro for archs without the plain open syscallRich Felker-4/+4
2014-05-27fix placement of multiple inclusion guard endif in internal syscall.hRich Felker-2/+2
this was messed up during a recent commit when the socketcall macros were moved to the common internal/syscall.h, and the following commit expanded the problem by adding more new content outside the guard.
2014-05-26fix type of extended argument array to pselect6 syscallRich Felker-1/+2
this only matters on x32 (and perhaps future 32-on-64 abis for other archs); otherwise the type is long anyway. the cast through uintptr_t prevents nonsensical "sign extension" of pointers, and follows the principle that uintptr_t is the canonical integer type to which pointer conversion is safe.
2014-05-24support kernels with no SYS_open syscall, only SYS_openatRich Felker-10/+26
open is handled specially because it is used from so many places, in so many variants (2 or 3 arguments, setting errno or not, and cancellable or not). trying to do it as a function would not only increase bloat, but would also risk subtle breakage. this is the first step towards supporting "new" archs where linux lacks "old" syscalls.
2014-05-24overhaul siginfo_t definition in signal.hRich Felker-23/+28
the main motivation for this change is that, with the previous definition, it was arguably illegal, in standard C, to initialize both si_value and si_pid/si_uid with designated initializers, due to the rule that only one member of a union can have an initializer. whether or not this affected real-world application code, it affected some internal code, and clang was producing warnings (and possibly generating incorrect code). the new definition uses a more complex hierarchy of structs and unions to avoid the need to initialize more than one member of a single union in usage cases that make sense. further work would be needed to eliminate even the ones with no practical applications. at the same time, some fixes are made to the exposed names for nonstandard fields, to match what software using them expects.
