Description Marcin Cieślak 2015-09-25 13:51:38 UTC
security/tor-devel ports has a simple test case in C to check for correctness
of the backtrace() reporting:


One needs https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/17151 applied to make sure tor's configure considers using external -lexecinfo

When linking the test code against libexecinfo from base (using 10.1 amd64 r283908) a truncated result appears, because there is an unused reserved space on the stack:

$ ./src/test/test-bt-cl crash

when using libexecinfo from ports.

Is it possible to update libexecinfo in base to fix this problem?

Comment 1 Marcin Cieślak 2015-09-25 13:53:39 UTC
I've tried base's clang 3.4, clang 3.7, gcc48 and gcc5. With clang it is even impossible to get function names in the gdb backtrace, even with gdb 7.9.1.
Comment 2 Ed Maste freebsd_committer 2015-09-25 14:04:18 UTC
See the comment added in PR 200778 - this isn't a problem in base's libexecinfo but instead the unwind library in base.
Comment 3 Jan Beich freebsd_committer 2016-11-03 05:24:54 UTC
(In reply to Ed Maste from comment #2)
> a problem in ... the unwind library in base

Is it so even after base r303394 ?
