[linux-lvm] Additions to LVM-BUGS-0.8final



Here is a list of additional bug fixes that appeared on the linux-lvm
mailing list, but are not currently in the BUGS file on the LVM site.

Cheers, Andreas

<22> vg_check_name -- LEAVING with ret: 0
<22> lvm_remove_recursive -- CALLED with dir: /dev/Main_VG

This looks like a bug in lvm_remove_recursive() (tools/lib/...)
A short look reveales the following suspicious code
sequence around line 71:

               if ( ( file_name = malloc ( strlen (dir) +
                                           strlen (dir_ent->d_name) +
                                           2)) == NULL) {
                  ret = -LVM_EREMOVE_RECURSIVE_MALLOC;
                  goto lvm_remove_recursive_end;
               }
               sprintf ( file_name, "%s/%s%c", dir, dir_ent->d_name,
0);

AFAICS this could write a byte beyound file_name, depending
on file name length (due to malloc alignment).

Try to replace the sprintf() with:

sprintf ( file_name, "%s/%s", dir, dir_ent->d_name);

or make the +2 a +3 in the malloc call.

please change vgchange.c line 346 to line 354 that they looks like:

            if ( ( ret = vg_check_online_all_pv ( vg, &pv_offl, &pv_incons)) < 0
		 &&  ret != -LVM_EPV_READ_MD_DEVICE) {

The SGI xfs-2.4test1 tree has also an addition which adds some extra fields
to /proc/partitions.
