Description petr.salinger 2005-11-07 13:26:49 UTC
On debian/kFreeBSD is not defined HasBSD44Sockets.
It should't be problem because
FreeBSD kernel 5.4 and 6.0 tries to be compatible with older (BSD43) source code
and at least in connect(), bind() ignores value in the field sun_len.
It uses only the value addrlen from function in system call.

Unfortunately, the we are hitted by computing the whole name length as
namelen = strlen(sockname.sun_path) + sizeof(sockname.sun_family);
instead of portable
namelen = strlen(sockname.sun_path) + offsetof(struct sockaddr_un, sun_path);

Therefore, it would be sufficient to correct calculation with sun_path in 
whole xorg-x11. Moreover, it is mainly correct, only 2 files need fix.

The  patch should be straightforward:
Please, could you apply it.
Thanks in advance

Comment 1 Aurelien Jarno 2006-01-02 00:49:54 UTC
Actually according to POSIX1.2004, you don't even't need to use strlen and 
offsetof, you can use sizeof(struct sockaddr_un) instead. Tested with a 
FreeBSD kernel and a Linux kernel. 
POSIX1.2004, page 263 says:    
"address_len   Specifies the length of the sockaddr structure pointed to by    
the address argument."

Reassigning to modular xlibs.

... and back to xorg.  xlibs is dead.

    Bug 4982: use offsetof for manipulating struct sockaddr_un
    X.Org Bugzilla #4982 <https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=4982>
    Patch #5424 <https://bugs.freedesktop.org/attachment.cgi?id=5424>

Thanks for the patch!

(I've also committed a followon that uses SUN_LEN if it's defined, even when
 BSD44SOCKETS is not.)
