Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 487656
Read and write size of startup status report buffer is incorrect
Last modified: 2009-10-06 03:07:07 EDT
Description of problem:
An incorrect buffer size is used when communicating the startup
This doesn't appear to result in an actual problem but the code
clearly used an incorrect size. It's worth fixing because we may
end up with seeing this a some future time and waste time trying
to work out what's causing it.
This issue has been fixed in the latest autofs package
Release note added. If any revisions are required, please set the
"requires_release_notes" flag to "?" and edit the "Release Notes" field accordingly.
All revisions will be proofread by the Engineering Content Services team.
Previously, autofs reported an incorrect buffer size internally when passing the startup status from the autofs daemon to the parent process. Although no specific consequences of this inaccuracy are known, the buffer size is now reported correctly to avoid any consequences arising in the future.
