Mmmh, no, if fdmax <= 0 (which happens when msg_controllen <
sizeof(struct cmsghdr)), then alls fds are passed, eventually
clobbering past ((char*)(msg_control)+m_controllen).
Run the little test case if you're not convinced...
I stand by my patch :-)
If fdmax <= 0, no iterations of the "for (i=0" loop will run.
'i' will therefore be left equal to zero. Therefore the next
bit of code writing in the SOL_SOCKET/SCM_RIGHTS/etc. values
will not run.
Next comes the test I modified, which will set MSG_CTRUNC.
Next scm_destroy(scm) is called which frees the list (this has to get
called and is why I say your patch wasn't correct).
So where in this code are all the fds passed to the user in this case?
I don't care what it actually does, I want to be shown why because as
far as I see it doesn't do what you say it does.
