Doc Text:
Dynamic linker no longer fails when an audit module provides alternate DSO Previously, when an audit module provided an alternate DSO (dynamic shared object) path, the *ld.so* dynamic linker terminated unexpectedly with a segmentation fault. This update fixes the bug and the dynamic linker now keeps track of the original DSO path for future reference and no longer crashes in the described scenario.

Description Kazu Yoshida 2015-04-13 02:09:49 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1211098 +++

Description of problem:

When audit modules provide path as the return value of the la_objsearch calls the name replaces whatever ld.so uses to find the DSO.  If the target DSO has an SONAME this is the SONAME. As a result the SONAME is not in the list by which the DSO is known. This usually is no problem. It becomes a problem when the SONAME is needed afterwards. One example is checking symbol and DSO versions.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL6 glibc

How reproducible:
As below

Steps to Reproduce:
ld.so crash when below both  conditions are met
1) audit modules provide path
2) dependent libary(ie what is recorded in NEEDED section) has dso versioning

Actual results:
ld.so crash

Expected results:
ld.so not to crash
