Description of problem:
ssize_t copy_file_range(int fd_in, loff_t *off_in,
int fd_out, loff_t *off_out,
size_t len, unsigned int flags);
ssize_t copy_file_range (int __infd, __off64_t *__pinoff,
int __outfd, __off64_t *__poutoff,
size_t __length, unsigned int __flags);
Note loff_t versus __off64_t
AFAICT loff_t is a kernel type that is not usually used in user space.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
And it's causing confusion for gluster devs who are copying the man page but are puzzled by the discrepancy between the man page and the decl in <unistd.h>
copy_file_range.2 man page describes Linux system call (section 2 - system calls (functions provided by the kernel)), so I believe the use of loff_t is appropriate.
__off64_t seems to be a type private to glibc.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 31 development cycle.
Changing version to '31'.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 31 is nearing its end of life.
Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 31 on 2020-11-24.
It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer
maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a
Fedora 'version' of '31'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 31 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 31 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2020-11-24. Fedora 31 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
