2018-09-14add hidden version of &errno accessor functionRich Felker-0/+2
this significantly improves codegen in functions that need to access errno but otherwise have no need for a GOT pointer. we could probably improve it much more by including an inline version of the &errno accessor function, but that depends on having the definitions of struct __pthread and __pthread_self(), which at present would expose a lot more than is appropriate. moving them to a small tls.h later might make this more reasonable.
2018-09-12reduce spurious inclusion of libc.hRich Felker-1/+0
libc.h was intended to be a header for access to global libc state and related interfaces, but ended up included all over the place because it was the way to get the weak_alias macro. most of the inclusions removed here are places where weak_alias was needed. a few were recently introduced for hidden. some go all the way back to when libc.h defined CANCELPT_BEGIN and _END, and all (wrongly implemented) cancellation points had to include it. remaining spurious users are mostly callers of the LOCK/UNLOCK macros and files that use the LFS64 macro to define the awful *64 aliases. in a few places, new inclusion of libc.h is added because several internal headers no longer implicitly include libc.h. declarations for __lockfile and __unlockfile are moved from libc.h to stdio_impl.h so that the latter does not need libc.h. putting them in libc.h made no sense at all, since the macros in stdio_impl.h are needed to use them correctly anyway.
2018-08-23fix missing strerror text for EMULTIHOPRich Felker-0/+1
this is an obsolete error code from RFS, an obsolete predecessor of NFS. POSIX documents it only as "Reserved", but maintains the requirement that it be defined. as long as it is defined, it needs a string for strerror to produce; the one chosen matches glibc and documentation from other language runtimes I could find.
2018-02-25add public interface headers to implementation filesRich Felker-0/+1
general policy is that all source files defining a public API or an ABI mechanism referenced by a public header should include the public header that declares the interface, so that the compiler or analysis tools can check the consistency of the declarations. Alexander Monakov pointed out a number of violations of this principle a few years back. fix them now.
2015-04-13remove remnants of support for running in no-thread-pointer modeRich Felker-3/+1
since 1.1.0, musl has nominally required a thread pointer to be setup. most of the remaining code that was checking for its availability was doing so for the sake of being usable by the dynamic linker. as of commit 71f099cb7db821c51d8f39dfac622c61e54d794c, this is no longer necessary; the thread pointer is now valid before any libc code (outside of dynamic linker bootstrap functions) runs. this commit essentially concludes "phase 3" of the "transition path for removing lazy init of thread pointer" project that began during the 1.1.0 release cycle.
2014-07-26add support for LC_TIME and LC_MESSAGES translationsRich Felker-2/+11
for LC_MESSAGES, translation of strerror and similar literal message functions is supported. for messages in other places (particularly the dynamic linker) that use format strings, translation is not yet supported. in order to make it possible and safe, such messages will need to be refactored to separate the textual content from the format. for LC_TIME, the day and month names and strftime-style format strings provided by nl_langinfo are supported for translation. however there may be limitations, as some of the original C-locale nl_langinfo strings are non-unique and thus perhaps non-suitable as keys. overall, the locale support activated by this commit should not be seen as complete and polished but as a basis for beginning to test locale functionality and implement locales.
2014-06-10simplify errno implementationRich Felker-1/+1
the motivation for the errno_ptr field in the thread structure, which this commit removes, was to allow the main thread's errno to keep its address when lazy thread pointer initialization was used. &errno was evaluated prior to setting up the thread pointer and stored in errno_ptr for the main thread; subsequently created threads would have errno_ptr pointing to their own errno_val in the thread structure. since lazy initialization was removed, there is no need for this extra level of indirection; __errno_location can simply return the address of the thread's errno_val directly. this does cause &errno to change, but the change happens before entry to application code, and thus is not observable.
2014-03-24always initialize thread pointer at program startRich Felker-1/+1
this is the first step in an overhaul aimed at greatly simplifying and optimizing everything dealing with thread-local state. previously, the thread pointer was initialized lazily on first access, or at program startup if stack protector was in use, or at certain random places where inconsistent state could be reached if it were not initialized early. while believed to be fully correct, the logic was fragile and non-obvious. in the first phase of the thread pointer overhaul, support is retained (and in some cases improved) for systems/situation where loading the thread pointer fails, e.g. old kernels. some notes on specific changes: - the confusing use of libc.main_thread as an indicator that the thread pointer is initialized is eliminated in favor of an explicit has_thread_pointer predicate. - sigaction no longer needs to ensure that the thread pointer is initialized before installing a signal handler (this was needed to prevent a situation where the signal handler caused the thread pointer to be initialized and the subsequent sigreturn cleared it again) but it still needs to ensure that implementation-internal thread-related signals are not blocked. - pthread tsd initialization for the main thread is deferred in a new manner to minimize bloat in the static-linked __init_tp code. - pthread_setcancelstate no longer needs special handling for the situation before the thread pointer is initialized. it simply fails on systems that cannot support a thread pointer, which are non-conforming anyway. - pthread_cleanup_push/pop now check for missing thread pointer and nop themselves out in this case, so stdio no longer needs to avoid the cancellable path when the thread pointer is not available. a number of cases remain where certain interfaces may crash if the system does not support a thread pointer. at this point, these should be limited to pthread interfaces, and the number of such cases should be fewer than before.
2014-03-05fix strerror on mips: one error code is out of the 8-bit table rangeRich Felker-1/+7
if we ever encounter other targets where error codes don't fit in the 8-bit range, the table should probably just be bumped to 16-bit, but for now I don't want to increase the table size on all archs just because of a bug in the mips abi.
2013-02-07fix typo in newly-added error message for EOWNERDEADRich Felker-1/+1
2013-02-07improve error stringsRich Felker-27/+30
this definitely has the potential to be a bikeshed topic, so some justification is in order. most of the changes made fit into one of the following categories: 1. alignment with text in posix, xsh 2.3 2. eliminating overly-specific text for shared error codes 3. making the message match more closely with the macro name 4. removing extraneous words in particular, the EAGAIN/EWOULDBLOCK text is updated to match the description of EAGAIN (which covers both uses) rather than saying the operation would block, and ENOTSUP/EOPNOTSUPP is updated not to mention sockets. the distinction between ENFILE/EMFILE has also been clarified; ENFILE is aligned with the posix text, and EMFILE, which lacks concise posix text matching any historic message, is updated to emphasize that the exhausted resource is not open files/open file descriptions, but rather the integer 'address space' of file descriptors. some messages may be further tweaked based on feedback.
