Fixed In Version: valgrind-3.8.1-3.3.el6
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Cause: Valgrind didn't support the [lf]setxattr system calls on ppc32 and ppc64 linux kernels. Consequence: Programs using those system calls when running under valgrind would get warnings and errors. Fix: valgrind now recognizes those system calls and handles them properly. Result: Programs running under valgrind on ppc that use [lf]setxattr system calls run without warnings or errors.
