Description magill 2000-03-03 16:41:09 UTC
With glibc-devel-2.1.2-11 installed, /usr/include/bits/ipc.h kefines the
key member of struct ipc_perm incorrectly:

struct ipc_perm
    __key_t __key;			/* Key.  */
    unsigned short int uid;		/* Owner's user ID.  */
    unsigned short int gid;		/* Owner's group ID.  */
    unsigned short int cuid;		/* Creator's user ID.  */
    unsigned short int cgid;		/* Creator's group ID.  */
    unsigned short int mode;		/* Read/write permission.  */
    unsigned short int __seq;		/* Sequence number.  */

key should simply be defined as 'key' not '__key'

Comment 2 Jakub Jelinek 2000-09-04 14:13:52 UTC
No, it should not. X/Open (1987/01) does not define such members of
struct ipc_perm. Look at util-linux/sys-utils/ipcs.c to see how ipcs
does this.
