Re: Bug#629556: also getosreldate()
I start to wonder if all these functions have really their place in
the GNU libc, as they are quite FreeBSD specific, while the functions
there are supposed to functions common to all OS.
In theory yes, in practice no, from 2.14 NEWS:
New Linux interfaces: clock_adjtime, name_to_handle_at,
open_by_handle_at, syncfs, setns, sendmmsg
Please revert that (or leave them disabled). Whatever the decision,
we have to handle that with the 2.14 upload for versioning reasons.
Which functions should be removed/disabled? We have:
All, the 2.13-1 version have released 2011-05-01,
they should wait for 2.14 Debian upload.
Two userland functions (not NFS specific):
They seems fine for me in our GNU libc.
Two syscall stubs:
They seems be used only by NFS specific code.
I also wonder, whether they retain ABI across major releases.
