Description Brad Davis freebsd_committer 2016-08-05 21:29:28 UTC
This is a pretty important update because it fixes CVE-2016-6254.

I have also removed the reading of the stolen counter completely, since it is gone in 10.3 and later, but the builders run 10.1.  Most people should be moving off of 10.1 & 10.2 since they EoL later this year.

Hey Brad, thanks for CC-ing me.

Any reason why you don't drop the complete patch-src_zfs__arc.c patch?
Comment 3 Brad Davis freebsd_committer 2016-08-06 13:51:52 UTC
Hi Ruben,

Because the pkg builders run 10.1, so the collectd package they build will still emit the error on >stable/10 after 10.2.  So this patch fixes the error message by unconditionally removing the counter.

(In reply to Brad Davis from comment #3)

Makes sense, of course. I must have been low on coffee when I wrote that, please ignore me ;) The patch can be dropped only when we release 5.6 next month.

Thank you for your work. I was on vacation and was not able to answer or discuss.
Comment 10 Krzysztof 2016-08-09 07:26:06 UTC
It seems, that latest version of collectd spoiled network plugin. I've made an upgrade of collectd5 and network plugin causes that collecd core dumps.

Aug  9 08:59:25 fw collectd[18731]: network plugin: gcry_control (GCRYCTL_SET_THREAD_CBS) failed: General error
Aug  9 08:59:25 fw collectdmon[18718]: Warning: collectd was terminated by signal 6 (core dumped)
Aug  9 08:59:25 fw kernel: pid 18731 (collectd), uid 0: exited on signal 6 (core dumped)

I've found similiar issue on debian bugs: http://osdir.com/ml/general/2016-07/msg40034.html

So I think we should warn users about this issue. I'll check collectd bugs list if they are aware of this.

This problem with netwok plugin was just reported to collectd community:
Comment 12 Brad Davis freebsd_committer 2016-08-09 13:17:14 UTC
OK, lets work with them to resolve it.

FWIW, I am not seeing the same core dump and I use the network plugin as well.
