Fixed In Version: glibc-2.17-90.el7
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
The library header netinet/tcp.h did not contain some of the newer definitions such as TCP_USER_TIMEOUT which were required for user applications to compile correctly. The library headers have been updated and synchronized with Linux kernel definitions for TCP_* constants. Two new structures, tcp_repair_opt, and tcp_cookie_transactions have also been added to the header.

Description John Eckersberg 2015-05-08 15:25:56 UTC
Description of problem:

netinet/tcp.h is missing the define for TCP_USER_TIMEOUT (along with others).  Looks like davem fixed this upstream in 2.18 here:


But this hasn't made its way into the RHEL7 glibc.

We're trying to use this features to improve availability for RHEL OpenStack Platform so it would be great to get this fixed quickly if possible.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

One more note I forgot, I'd like to get this proposed for 7.1.z once the flags are set.  We got a kernel fix backported for 7.1.z to fix a related issue (bug 1215924) so it would be nice to get an updated glibc build to go with it.

Comment 3 Fabio Massimo Di Nitto 2015-05-11 20:26:33 UTC
Raising severity as this affects a major component in OpenStack and we can't rebuild the package until the headers are fixed.
