Description Harald Hoyer 2004-09-17 04:29:56 EDT
u_long is used in all the RPC headers

They should be defined correctly like here:

Comment 2 Jakub Jelinek 2004-09-24 03:12:04 EDT
We discussed this on IRC.
1) the headers can't change because of binary compatibility requirements
2) the structures in those headers are the host structures, which by
   no means have to reflect the layout that goes over the wire.
   tcpdump should use xdrmem* RPC accessors.
