Description Sean Bruno freebsd_committer 2015-06-28 15:46:19 UTC
running the mips version of "sysctl -a" yeilds no output:

sbruno@tasty.ysv:~/qemu-bsd-user % mips-bsd-user/qemu-mips /usr/local/poudriere/jails/11mips-test/rescue/sysctl -a
sysctl: sysctl fmt -1 1024 2: No such file or directory

running the arm version works just fine:

Comment 1 Stacey Son freebsd_committer 2015-06-28 18:40:11 UTC
Also fails with qemu-mips64.

qemu-mips64-static -strace indicates that sysctl({0 4 16777216 16777216}, 4,...) is failing:

39063 __sysctl({ 0 2 1 }, 3, 0x0000007fffffd5f8, 0x0000007fffffd650, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000) = 0
39063 __sysctl({ 0 1 16777216 16777216 }, 4, 0x0000007fffffccb0, 0x0000007fffffd518, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000) = 0
39063 __sysctl({ 0 4 16777216 16777216 }, 4, 0x0000007fffffc478, 0x0000007fffffc878, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000) = -1 errno=2 (No such file or directory)

A comment from sys/kern/kern_sysctl.c documents these undocumented sysctl's:

/*
 * "Staff-functions"
 *
 * These functions implement a presently undocumented interface
 * used by the sysctl program to walk the tree, and get the type
 * so it can print the value.
 * This interface is under work and consideration, and should probably
 * be killed with a big axe by the first person who can find the time.
 * (be aware though, that the proper interface isn't as obvious as it
 * may seem, there are various conflicting requirements.
 *
 * {0,0}        printf the entire MIB-tree.
 * {0,1,...}    return the name of the "..." OID.
 * {0,2,...}    return the next OID.
 * {0,3}        return the OID of the name in "new"
 * {0,4,...}    return the kind & format info for the "..." OID.
 * {0,5,...}    return the description the "..." OID.
 */

It is strange that {0,1,...} works but {0,4,...} is failing.
Comment 2 Juergen Lock freebsd_committer 2015-06-28 19:43:20 UTC
(In reply to Stacey Son from comment #1)
Some sysctls are structs, I don't think we handle all of these...
Comment 3 Juergen Lock freebsd_committer 2015-06-28 20:14:14 UTC
..for example sysctl_oldcvt() in bsd-user/freebsd/os-sys.c doesn't handle CTLTYPE_OPAQUE and CTLTYPE_STRUCT.
Comment 4 Stacey Son freebsd_committer 2015-06-29 01:25:37 UTC
(In reply to Juergen Lock from comment #3)

Note that all the KERN_PROC code I recently added is CTLTYPE_STRUCT types.  With structs there isn't really a generic way of handling them.
Comment 5 Stacey Son freebsd_committer 2015-06-29 18:38:44 UTC
https://github.com/seanbruno/qemu-bsd-user/commit/9b1c1bb82d63266e0b0e24d455e430ae366642c3  should fix this problem and give lots of output for 'sysctl -a'.  Some of the output from 'sysctl -a' may not be correct, however, since it may need to be byte swapped itself.
