dpkg: fix a link problem for dpkg-native on CentOS 5.8
[ CQID: WIND00392830 ] CentOS 5.8 provides the kernel support and headers for the sync_file_range() syscall, but glibc 2.5 doesn't implement the sync_file_range() syscall stub, so we can't link dpkg-native. Add a patch that makes dpkg require a glibc version >= 2.6 in order to use sync_file_range().

+ Bug 518581 - [RHEL5] glibc misses sync_file_range syscall interface
+
+ Status: CLOSED CANTFIX
+ Last Closed: 2009-11-22 22:19:55
+
+ Kirby Zhou 2009-08-20 23:37:55 EDT
+
+ Description of problem:
+
+ glibc misses sync_file_range syscall interface. The header file and
+ man page both say 'sync_file_range' should exist. From man page,
+ sync_file_range should exist sinc kernel-2.6.17
+
+ Andreas Schwab 2009-08-21 03:24:24 EDT
+
+ It has only been added to glibc 2.6, and cannot be backported due to
+ ABI breakage. You can always fall back to syscall(3).
+
+ Ulrich Drepper 2009-11-22 22:19:55 EST
+
+ As comment #1 says, no chance to backport this.
+
+ See the syscall man page for instructions.
+
+ Jon E 2010-03-19 10:32:37 EDT
+
+ then why document it if it's broken and you're not going to fix it?
+ .. might want to FTFM over at sync_file_range(2) - in the meantime -
+ borrowing from glibc 2.6 .. any thoughts on this implementation for a
+ hacky workaround for those still on your "ancient releases" .. (eg:
+ RHEL5.3)?:
+
+ #ifdef ULI_WONT_FIX_THIS_IN_GLIBC2.5
+ #define NR_sync_file_range 277
+ int sync_file_range (int fd, __off64_t from, __off64_t to, unsigned int flags)
+ {
+ return syscall (NR_sync_file_range, fd,
+ __LONG_LONG_PAIR ((long) (from >> 32), (long) from),
+ __LONG_LONG_PAIR ((long) (to >> 32), (long) to),
+ flags);
+ }
+ #endif
+
+ assuming of course that you're on an x86_64 and include/asm-
+ x86_64/unistd.h has the correct entry
+
+ (fwiw - fio is starting to use this now)
+
+Rather than attempting to provide an implementation using syscall(),
+we take the more conservative route and ignore header support for
+sync_file_range() flags when the glibc version is <= 2.5.

+Upstream-Status: Inappropriate [everyone else builds on newer hosts :-)]
