Description Joe Lawrence 2018-06-18 15:25:49 UTC
Description of problem:
Linux 4.17 added _ANY variants to the SHM_STAT, SEM_STAT, and MSG_STAT ipc command constants.  Those kernel commits have been requested to be backported to RHEL-7.6 (bz1579402) and as such, would require an accompanying glibc-headers change.

Additional info:
These constants have already been added to the upstream glibc project with the following commits:

  f2857da7cdb6 Add SHM_STAT_ANY from Linux 4.17 to bits/shm.h.
  176c7fee517c Add SEM_STAT_ANY from Linux 4.17 to bits/sem.h.
  86bf0019ed9c Add MSG_STAT_ANY from Linux 4.17 to bits/msq.h.

Thanks, --- Joe

Hi colleagues,

fine with me for the reasons mentioned above (build vs. runtime).


Comment 16 Sergey Kolosov 2019-06-10 09:54:04 UTC
glibc-2.17-272.el7 contains corresponding SHM_STAT_ANY, SEM_STAT_ANY, and MSG_STAT_ANY ipc command constants.
