Description Koichi Murase 2020-01-08 18:30:57 UTC
I'm running FreeBSD 12.1-RELEASE in VirtualBox on Windows 10.

  $ uname -a
  FreeBSD vm-freebsd 12.1-RELEASE FreeBSD 12.1-RELEASE r354233 GENERIC  i386

The following reduced program results in a segmentation fault.

  $ cat test1.c
  #include <locale.h>
  #include <stdio.h>

  int main(int argc, char** argv) {
    int i;

    if (argc != 2) return 2;
    for (i = 0; i < 100000; i++) {
      setlocale(LC_COLLATE, argv[1]);
      setlocale(LC_COLLATE, "C");
    return 0;
  $ gcc -o test1 test1.c
  $ ./test1 en_US.UTF-8
  Segmentation fault
  $ ./test1 ja_JP.UTF-8
  Segmentation fault
  $ ./test1 ja_JP.eucJP
  Segmentation fault

The number of successful invocation of `setlocale' until the
segmentation fault is always the same for the same locale, but it is
different for different locales.  The segmentation fault is only
caused when the category LC_COLLATE is changed (through LC_COLLTE or
LC_ALL).  There are no problems with the other categories.

I suspect the implementation of `__collate_load_tables_l' in
`lib/libc/locale/collate.c'.  I'm not sure but maybe there is a memory
leak caused by missing `munmap'?

I suspect you're correct.  There's another bug nearby, where the return value of mmap() is checked for NULL rather than MAP_FAILED.

  libc: Fix a few bugs in the xlocale collation code.

  - Fix checks for mmap() failures. [1]
  - Set the "map" and "maplen" fields of struct xlocale_collate so that
    the table destructor actually does something.
  - Free an already-mapped collation file before loading a new one into
    the global table.
  - Harmonize the prototype and definition of __collate_load_tables_l() by
    adding the "static" qualifier to the latter.
