also fix the lack of declaration (and thus hidden visibility) in
__stdio_close's use of __aio_close.
these functions cannot provide the glibc lfs64-ABI-compatible symbols
when time_t differs from what it was in that ABI. instead, the aliases
need to be provided by the time32 compat shims or through some other
the LFS64 macro was not self-documenting and barely saved any
characters. simply use weak_alias directly so that it's clear what's
being done, and doesn't depend on a header to provide a strange macro.
libc.h was intended to be a header for access to global libc state and
related interfaces, but ended up included all over the place because
it was the way to get the weak_alias macro. most of the inclusions
removed here are places where weak_alias was needed. a few were
recently introduced for hidden. some go all the way back to when
libc.h defined CANCELPT_BEGIN and _END, and all (wrongly implemented)
cancellation points had to include it.
remaining spurious users are mostly callers of the LOCK/UNLOCK macros
and files that use the LFS64 macro to define the awful *64 aliases.
in a few places, new inclusion of libc.h is added because several
internal headers no longer implicitly include libc.h.
declarations for __lockfile and __unlockfile are moved from libc.h to
stdio_impl.h so that the latter does not need libc.h. putting them in
libc.h made no sense at all, since the macros in stdio_impl.h are
needed to use them correctly anyway.
these were overlooked for various reasons in earlier stages.
previously, the __timedwait function was optionally a cancellation
point depending on whether it was passed a pointer to a cleaup
function and context to register. as of now, only one caller actually
used such a cleanup function (and it may face removal soon); most
callers either passed a null pointer to disable cancellation or a
dummy cleanup function.
now, __timedwait is never a cancellation point, and __timedwait_cp is
the cancellable version. this makes the intent of the calling code
more obvious and avoids ugly dummy functions and long argument lists.
previously, aio operations were not tracked by file descriptor; each
operation was completely independent. this resulted in non-conforming
behavior for non-seekable/append-mode writes (which are required to be
ordered) and made it impossible to implement aio_cancel, which in turn
made closing file descriptors with outstanding aio operations unsafe.
the new implementation is significantly heavier (roughly twice the
size, and seems to be slightly slower) and presently aims mainly at
correctness, not performance.
most of the public interfaces have been moved into a single file,
aio.c, because there is little benefit to be had from splitting them.
whenever any aio functions are used, aio_cancel and the internal
queue lifetime management and fd-to-queue mapping code must be linked,
and these functions make up the bulk of the code size.
the close function's interaction with aio is implemented with weak
alias magic, to avoid pulling in heavy aio cancellation code in
programs that don't use aio, and the expensive cancellation path
(which includes signal blocking) is optimized out when there are no
active aio queues.
versionsort64, aio*64 and lio*64 symbols were missing, they are
only needed for glibc ABI compatibility, on the source level
dirent.h and aio.h already redirect them.
some features are not yet supported, and only minimal testing has been
performed. should be considered experimental at this point.
