Description Leon Dang 2015-08-20 04:36:13 UTC
if_data8 in types_freebsd.go is incompatible with FreeBSD-11's if.h. This results in go:net failing test and not being able to pick up available network interfaces correctly. Extra info: https://github.com/golang/go/issues/11641

ztypes_freebsd_{amd64/i386}.go need to be regenerated with:

CC=clang go tool cgo -godefs types_freebsd.go > ztypes_freebsd_amd64.go

Comment 1 Maciej Pasternacki 2015-08-26 16:01:48 UTC
Created attachment 160383 [details]

Attaching a proper patch against port dir based on Leon Dang's command.

It adds a conditional patch, activated only on FreeBSD 11. The files generated by `go tool cgo` are also included in the patch, as they required manual tweaking on i386. Tested on amd64 and in an i386 jail.

Test case:

$ cat > iftest.go 
package main

import "fmt"
import "net"

func main() {

Correct result (on patched system):

$ go run iftest.go 
&{2 16384 lo0  up|loopback|multicast} <nil>

Incorrect result:
$ go run iftest.go
<nil> route ip+net: no such network interface

I am hitting this bug on FreeBSD/current as well.

Please fix.
Comment 3 Maciej Pasternacki 2015-09-01 17:10:25 UTC
What would need to happen for this to be merged? This issue is blocking my work, and is a blocker for Go 1.5 on -CURRENT.
