2020-10-14fix getgrouplist when nscd reports an empty listRich Felker-1/+2
commit 500c6886c654fd45e4926990fee2c61d816be197 broke this by fixing the behavior of fread to conform to the C standard; getgroupslist was assuming the old behavior, that a request to read 1 member of length 0 would return 1, not 0.
2015-03-15simplify nscd lookup code for alt passwd/group backendsRich Felker-2/+2
previously, a sentinel value of (FILE *)-1 was used to inform the caller of __nscd_query that nscd is not in use. aside from being an ugly hack, this resulted in duplicate code paths for two logically equivalent cases: no nscd, and "not found" result from nscd. now, __nscd_query simply skips closing the socket and returns a valid FILE pointer when nscd is not in use, and produces a fake "not found" response header. the caller is then responsible for closing the socket just like it would do if it had gotten a real "not found" response.
2015-03-15add alternate backend support for getgrouplistJosiah Worcester-0/+80
This completes the alternate backend support that was previously added to the getpw* and getgr* functions. Unlike those, though, it unconditionally queries nscd. Any groups from nscd that aren't in the /etc/groups file are added to the returned list, and any that are present in the file are ignored. The purpose of this behavior is to provide a view of the group database consistent with what is observed by the getgr* functions. If group memberships reported by nscd were honored when the corresponding group already has a definition in the /etc/groups file, the user's getgrouplist-based membership in the group would conflict with their non-membership in the reported gr_mem[] for the group. The changes made also make getgrouplist thread-safe and eliminate its clobbering of the global getgrent state.
