Description Scott K Logan 2012-03-21 03:12:11 EDT
Description of problem:
Using -L should show ACL information with dereferenced symlinks to directories.
Specifically, if ACL information is present on a folder, it's dereferenced symlink should show '+' at the end of the mode.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Bug is NOT present in coreutils-8.12-2.fc16
Bug IS present in coreutils-8.12-6.fc16

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. mkdir d
2. ln -s d l
3. setfacl -nm u:daemon:rx d
4. ls -dl -L l
Actual results:
Mode shows a '.' at the end, ex drwxrwxr-x.

Expected results:
Mode should show a '+' at the end, ex drwxrwxr-x+

Additional info:
This bug makes it impossible to build the acl RPM, as it causes one of the tests to fail.
Comment 1 Ondrej Vasik 2012-03-21 03:32:56 EDT
Thanks for report - probably caused by fix for https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=692823 . Seems to work correctly in rawhide and f17 (coreutils-8.15).
Comment 2 Ondrej Vasik 2012-03-21 04:09:31 EDT
Ok confirmed, the fix for 692823 caused the regression in ls ... which was solved by http://git.savannah.gnu.org/gitweb/?p=gnulib.git;a=commitdiff;h=80af92afd10f9ed1c3621432145baf4a32ab5cea . However, upstream reverted both patches, as the commit introduces performance regression in common case for a little gain in uncommon one.
