RHEL Engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on RHEL 6 through RHEL 9 to Red Hat Jira (issues.redhat.com). If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs in the statuses "NEW", "ASSIGNED", and "POST" are being migrated throughout September 2023. Bugs of Red Hat partners with an assigned Engineering Partner Manager (EPM) are migrated in late September as per pre-agreed dates. Bugs against components "kernel", "kernel-rt", and "kpatch" are only migrated if still in "NEW" or "ASSIGNED". If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at rh-issues@redhat.com to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "https://issues.redhat.com/browse/RHEL-XXXX", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.

Sourceware 24741 0 P2 RESOLVED ld.so should not require that a versioned symbol is always implemented in the same library 2020-03-20 18:18:17 UTC

Description Carlos O'Donell 2019-10-22 13:51:30 UTC
Enable future work where we can move versioned symbols from one DSO to another.

    ld.so: Support moving versioned symbols between sonames [BZ #24741]
    This change should be fully backwards-compatible because the old
    code aborted the load if a soname mismatch was encountered
    (instead of searching further for a matching symbol).  This means
    that no different symbols are found.
    The soname check was explicitly disabled for the skip_map != NULL
    case.  However, this only happens with dl(v)sym and RTLD_NEXT,
    and those lookups do not come with a verneed entry that could be used
    for the check.
    The error check was already explicitly disabled for the skip_map !=
    NULL case, that is, when dl(v)sym was called with RTLD_NEXT.  But
    _dl_vsym always sets filename in the struct r_found_version argument
    to NULL, so the check was not active anyway.  This means that
    symbol lookup results for the skip_map != NULL case do not change,

Please backport patch to Fedora (if required):
Fedora 31
Fedora 30
Fedora 29

Comment 1 Carlos O'Donell 2019-10-25 02:59:28 UTC
Not required on f31. (Already upstream)
Not required on f30. (Already backported by Florian in 34bc6caeb760409bbfc6e9e04ce02d62255a8557).
Required for f29. Backported it just for the sake of having it there for parity.

Builds in progress.
