Description Carlos O'Donell 2020-03-04 18:13:40 UTC
The following commits should get backported to update glibc to Linux 5.5:




commit 5828bc4523230685ac29a4a882967913255f5666
Author: Joseph Myers <joseph>
Date:   Fri Feb 7 13:54:58 2020 +0000

    Update syscall lists for Linux 5.5.
    Linux 5.5 has no new syscalls to add to syscall-names.list, but it
    does newly enable the clone3 syscall for AArch64.  This patch updates
    the kernel version listed in syscall-names.list and regenerates the
    AArch64 arch-syscall.h.
    Tested with build-many-glibcs.py.

commit 449db0fa3ef9d17951d94d7504db13b1891fa964
Author: Joseph Myers <joseph>
Date:   Fri Feb 7 13:55:29 2020 +0000

    Update kernel version to 5.5 in tst-mman-consts.py.
    This patch updates the kernel version in the test tst-mman-consts.py
    to 5.5.  (There are no new constants covered by this test in 5.5 that
    need any other header changes.)
    Tested with build-many-glibcs.py.

commit 6cf6a91d05d626698f158078961b3bffcb39ff8c
Author: Joseph Myers <joseph>
Date:   Wed Feb 12 13:37:16 2020 +0000

    Rename RWF_WRITE_LIFE_NOT_SET to RWH_WRITE_LIFE_NOT_SET following Linux 5.5.
    with the old name kept as an alias.  This patch makes the
    corresponding change in glibc.
    Tested for x86_64.

Comment 1 Carlos O'Donell 2020-04-03 20:20:14 UTC
Linux 5.6 update just came out.

commit e788beaf093bfafecd6b4456b984bd927c18987a
Author: Joseph Myers <joseph>
Date:   Fri Apr 3 18:07:55 2020 +0000

    Update syscall lists for Linux 5.6.
    Linux 5.6 has new openat2 and pidfd_getfd syscalls.  This patch adds
    them to syscall-names.list and regenerates the arch-syscall.h files.
    Tested with build-many-glibcs.py.

Comment 4 Sergey Kolosov 2020-07-27 19:23:47 UTC
Verified, syscall-names.list contains these new syscalls(openat2, pidfd_getfd, clone3).

Comment 7 errata-xmlrpc 2020-11-04 01:33:21 UTC

resolved in a recent advisory, it has been closed with a
resolution of ERRATA.
