Description of problem:
Description taken from github patch. Issue is in attr.h:
g++ is unable to compile code with nla_for_each_nested macro due to
implicit type conversion from void* to nlattr*. This patch adds type
casting for nla_for_each_nested macro to address this issue.
Patch is available upstream.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
3.2.21-10 (on CentOS7)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Build with gcc and include libnl3 headers
No compile error
Patch (very short + simple) here: https://github.com/thom311/libnl/commit/cdf2d4baf376e4a3030a2c1169516358b4fba2e5
I have tested backporting that commit onto the current CentOS7 rpm package and it patches easily and works.
As mentioned, this is fixed upstream by commit https://github.com/thom311/libnl/commit/cdf2d4baf376e4a3030a2c1169516358b4fba2e5
As we rebase the libnl3 package for rhel-7.3, this fix is included ~automatically~.
