Description Andriy Gapon 2004-10-20 13:00:50 UTC
It seems that pathname "prefixing" is not performed for unix domain
socket calls in linux emulation e.g. "/compat/linux" prefix is never
tried to be prepended for bind() and connect() calls. 
When mixed with filesystem calls this leads to linux applications
failing in scenarios like this:

//this will create /compat/linux/tmp/foo/ directory

strcpy(addr.sun_path, "/tmp/foo/bar");
addr.sun_family = AF_LOCAL;
bind(s, (struct sockaddr *) &addr, SUN_LEN(&addr));
//this will try to bind socket in /tmp/foo/ directory
//which does not exist

I have experinced this problem on FreeBSD 5.2.1 with two real-life
	IBM WebSphere MQ 5.3


fix should not be very hard to implement, but I'd prefer that someone more
familiar with the code would do it (someone who wrote the similar code for 
filesystem calls).
How-To-Repeat: Existence of this problem can be easily verified using a small program 
with the above code (make sure /tmp/foo directory is not existant).

State Changed
From-To: open->feedback

Does this problem still persists on a recent FreeBSD? 
If yes, I suggest to try to come up with a patch, since most 
of the problems are fixed by people which need a particular 
feature (we don't have a maintainer for the linuxolator).

ISTM 'analyzed' is a better state for this.

batch change:

For bugs that match the following
-  Status Is In progress 
- Untouched since 2018-01-01.

Reset to open status.

I did a quick pass but if you are getting this email it might be worthwhile to double check to see if this bug ought to be closed.
