Description Ulrich Drepper 2004-08-26 05:57:25 UTC
Description of problem:
The parameters of the personality syscall are not decoded.  This has
two reasons:
a) the PER_ values are no macros, so all the #ifdef PER_xxx tests fail
b) a number of values are missing

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
strace-4.5.6-1

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.strace setarch -3 i386 /bin/echo
2.
3.
  
Actual results:
personality(0x8000008 /* PER_??? */)    = 0


Expected results:
personality(PER_LINUX32_3GB)            = 0


Additional info:
I'll attach a patch.

Patch to implement PER_ option decoding

The patch assumes that recent kernel headers are available since we cannot test
using #ifdef whether the PER_ values are defined.  The only alternative is to
define the value in system.c and not rely on kernel headers.  Your choice.

Comment 2 Roland McGrath 2004-08-31 06:46:39 UTC
I put a fix in upstream.

Comment 3 Roland McGrath 2004-09-01 02:03:04 UTC
4.5.7-2 is in rawhide.  I'll make an FC2 update release in a few days.
