Description Dmitry V. Levin 2021-05-20 22:54:06 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1929836 +++

The scv ABI introduced by glibc-2.32.9000-24 at 2021-01-08 has the following bug: RET_SCV macro (added by upstream commit glibc-2.33~117) treats any negative value returned by syscall via scv ABI as an error, but this is not correct.

Proposed fix was posted by Nicholas Piggin at

This bug was found by strace test suite and it blocks strace updates in Fedora.

I hope the fix will be applied before strace is kicked out from Fedora due to ftbfs which is 19 weeks already.
