Fixed In Version: valgrind-3.8.1-7.el6
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Valgrind was unable to handle the SIOCETHTOOL ioctl (0x8946), which queries or controls network driver and hardware settings. As a consequence, programs running under Valgrind that use SIOCETHTOOL received a warning message, and arguments were not tracked by Valgrind. Valgrind now correctly recognizes the SIOCETHTOOL ioctl, and the described problem no longer occurs.

This would require a backport of upstream valgrind svn r14114.

Verified for build valgrind-3.8.1-7.el6.
