2012-10-04TLS (GNU/C11 thread-local storage) support for static-linked programsRich Felker-14/+117
the design for TLS in dynamic-linked programs is mostly complete too, but I have not yet implemented it. cost is nonzero but still low for programs which do not use TLS and/or do not use threads (a few hundred bytes of new code, plus dependency on memcpy). i believe it can be made smaller at some point by merging __init_tls and __init_security into __libc_start_main and avoiding duplicate auxv-parsing code. at the same time, I've also slightly changed the logic pthread_create uses to allocate guard pages to ensure that guard pages are not counted towards commit charge.
2012-09-30add getopt reset supportRich Felker-2/+18
based on proposed patches by Daniel Cegiełka, with minor changes: - use a weak symbol for optreset so it doesn't clash with namespace - also reset optpos (position in multi-option arg like -lR) - also make getopt_long support reset
2012-09-30protect sem_open against cancellationRich Felker-13/+19
also fix one minor bug: failure to free the early-reserved slot when the semaphore later found to already be mapped.
2012-09-30overhaul sem_openRich Felker-108/+99
this function was overly complicated and not even obviously correct. avoid using openat/linkat just like in shm_open, and instead expand pathname using code shared with shm_open. remove bogus (and dangerous, with priorities) use of spinlocks. this commit also heavily streamlines the code and ensures there are no failure cases that can happen after a new semaphore has been created in the filesystem, since that case is unreportable.
2012-09-30clean up, bugfixes, and general improvement for shm_open/shm_unlinkRich Felker-30/+28
1. don't make non-cloexec file descriptors 2. cancellation safety (cleanup handlers were missing, now unneeded) 3. share name validation/mapping code between open/unlink functions 4. avoid wasteful/slow syscalls
2012-09-29more close-on-exec fixes, mostly using new "e" flag to fopenRich Felker-9/+9
2012-09-29add 'e' modifier (close-on-exec) to fopen and fdopenRich Felker-2/+5
this feature will be in the next version of POSIX, and can be used internally immediately. there are many internal uses of fopen where close-on-exec is needed to fix bugs.
2012-09-29fix some more O_CLOEXEC/SOCK_CLOEXEC issuesRich Felker-7/+5
2012-09-29move accept4, dup3, and pipe2 to non-linux-specific locationsRich Felker-0/+0
these interfaces have been adopted by the Austin Group for inclusion in the next version of POSIX.
2012-09-29emulate SOCK_CLOEXEC and SOCK_NONBLOCK for old (pre-2.6.27) kernelsRich Felker-3/+15
also update syslog to use SOCK_CLOEXEC rather than separate fcntl step, to make it safe in multithreaded programs that run external programs. emulation is not atomic; it could be made atomic by holding a lock on forking during the operation, but this seems like overkill. my goal is not to achieve perfect behavior on old kernels (which have plenty of other imperfect behavior already) but to avoid catastrophic breakage in (1) syslog, which would give no output on old kernels with the change to use SOCK_CLOEXEC, and (2) programs built on a new kernel where configure scripts detected a working SOCK_CLOEXEC, which later get run on older kernels (they may otherwise fail to work completely).
2012-09-29sem_open should make process-shared semaphoresRich Felker-1/+1
this did not matter because we don't yet treat process-shared special. when private futex support is added, however, it will matter.
2012-09-29use O_CLOEXEC to open semaphore files in sem_openRich Felker-2/+2
2012-09-29fix some indention-with-spaces that crept inRich Felker-9/+9
2012-09-29microblaze portRich Felker-0/+188
based on initial work by rdp, with heavy modifications. some features including threads are untested because qemu app-level emulation seems to be broken and I do not have a proper system image for testing.
2012-09-27fix arm clone syscall bug (no effect unless app uses clone)Rich Felker-2/+1
the code to exit the new thread/process after the start function returns was mixed up in its syscall convention.
2012-09-27optimize strchrnul/strcspn not to scan string twice on no-matchRich Felker-25/+29
when strchr fails, and important piece of information already computed, the string length, is thrown away. have strchrnul (with namespace protection) be the underlying function so this information can be kept, and let strchr be a wrapper for it. this also allows strcspn to be considerably faster in the case where the match set has a single element that's not matched.
2012-09-27slightly cleaner strlen, also seems to compile to better codeRich Felker-6/+4
testing with gcc 4.6.3 on x86, -Os, the old version does a duplicate null byte check after the first loop. this is purely the compiler being stupid, but the old code was also stupid and unintuitive in how it expressed the check.
2012-09-26fix dirname to handle input of form "foo/" correctlyRich Felker-6/+5
also optimized a bit.
2012-09-24fix handling of EINTR during close()Rich Felker-1/+4
austin group interpretation for defect #529 ( tightens the requirements on close such that, if it returns with EINTR, the file descriptor must not be closed. the linux kernel developers vehemently disagree with this, and will not change it. we catch and remap EINTR to EINPROGRESS, which the standard allows close() to return when the operation was not finished but the file descriptor has been closed.
2012-09-22fix getaddrinfo to accept port 0 (zero)Rich Felker-2/+2
new behavior can be summarized as: inputs that parse completely as a decimal number are treated as one, and rejected only if the result is out of 16-bit range. inputs that do not parse as a decimal number (where strtoul leaves anything left over in the input) are searched in /etc/services.
2012-09-22fix remaining IPC_64 issue (shmctl)Rich Felker-4/+2
also cleanup cruft related to the issue
2012-09-22fix IPC_64 in msgctl tooRich Felker-6/+2
2012-09-22fix broken semctl on systems that don't use IPC_64 flagRich Felker-2/+6
not tested on mips and arm; they may still be broken. x86_64 should be ok now.
2012-09-21LFS64 alias for prlimitRich Felker-0/+3
issue reported/requested by Justin Cormack
2012-09-16add clock_adjtime, remap_file_pages, and syncfs syscall wrappersRich Felker-0/+25
patch by Justin Cormack, with slight modification
2012-09-15add crypt_md5 password hashRich Felker-2/+285
contributed by nsz
2012-09-15revert low rounds-count limits in crypt hashesRich Felker-4/+4
it was determined in discussion that these kind of limits are not sufficient to protect single-threaded servers against denial of service attacks from maliciously large round counts. the time scales simply vary too much; many users will want login passwords with rounds counts on a scale that gives decisecond latency, while highly loaded webservers will need millisecond latency or shorter. still some limit is left in place; the idea is not to protect against attacks, but to avoid the runtime of a single call to crypt being, for all practical purposes, infinite, so that configuration errors can be caught and fixed without bringing down whole systems. these limits are very high, on the order of minute-long runtimes for modest systems.
2012-09-15update mips cancellation-point syscall asm with 7-arg and r25 fixesRich Felker-2/+5
these fixes were already made to the normal syscall asm but not the cancellation point version.
2012-09-14workaround gcc got-register-reload performance problems in mallocRich Felker-4/+8
with this patch, the malloc in built with -Os is nearly the same speed as the one built with -O3. thus it solves the performance regression that resulted from removing the forced -O3 when building; now can be both small and fast.
2012-09-14use vfork if possible in posix_spawnRich Felker-1/+3
vfork is implemented as the fork syscall (with no atfork handlers run) on archs where it is not available, so this change does not introduce any change in behavior or regression for such archs.
2012-09-10asm for memmove on i386 and x86_64Rich Felker-0/+36
for the sake of simplicity, I've only used rep movsb rather than breaking up the copy for using rep movsd/q. on all modern cpus, this seems to be fine, but if there are performance problems, there might be a need to go back and add support for rep movsd/q.
2012-09-10fix another ppoll issue (missing sigset_t size argument)Rich Felker-1/+1
2012-09-10reenable word-at-at-time copying in memmoveRich Felker-4/+27
before restrict was added, memove called memcpy for forward copies and used a byte-at-a-time loop for reverse copies. this was changed to avoid invoking UB now that memcpy has an undefined copying order, making memmove considerably slower. performance is still rather bad, so I'll be adding asm soon.
2012-09-10fix ppoll with null timeout argumentRich Felker-2/+2
2012-09-09add setdomainname syscall, fix getdomainname (previously a stub)Rich Felker-1/+17

2012-09-09add linux ppoll syscall wrapperRich Felker-0/+9
2012-09-09reenable sync_file_range; should no longer break on mipsRich Felker-2/+2
2012-09-09add 7-arg syscall support for mipsRich Felker-4/+8
no syscalls actually use that many arguments; the issue is that some syscalls with 64-bit arguments have them ordered badly so that breaking them into aligned 32-bit half-arguments wastes slots with padding, and a 7th slot is needed for the last argument.
2012-09-09fix mips syscall_cp_asm code (saved register usage)Rich Felker-2/+2
2012-09-09fix broken mips syscall asmRich Felker-2/+2
this code was using $10 to save the syscall number, but $10 is not necessarily preserved by the kernel across syscalls. only mattered for syscalls that got interrupted by a signal and restarted. as far as i can tell, $25 is preserved by the kernel across syscalls.
2012-09-08disable sync_file_range for nowRich Felker-2/+3
something is wrong with the logic for the argument layout, resulting in compile errors on mips due to too many args to syscall... further information on how it's supposed to work will be needed before it can be reactivated.
2012-09-08syscall organization overhaulRich Felker-5/+138
now public syscall.h only exposes __NR_* and SYS_* constants and the variadic syscall function. no macros or inline functions, no __syscall_ret or other internal details, no 16-/32-bit legacy syscall renaming, etc. this logic has all been moved to src/internal/syscall.h with the arch-specific parts in arch/$(ARCH)/syscall_arch.h, and the amount of arch-specific stuff has been reduced to a minimum. changes still need to be reviewed/double-checked. minimal testing on i386 and mips has already been performed.
2012-09-08add acct syscall source file, omitted in last syscalls commitRich Felker-0/+9
