Thank you, thats a fair answer. But I think we are still talking at
cross-purposes. The case I am most interested in is when soreceive()
is passed a non-NULL struct mbuf **mp argument. The source comment
says for that case, only the count in uio_resid field is actually used.
Several of the callers which pass soreceive a struct mbuf ** don't
even set the uio_segflag. Heck, before the changes I commited last
month, there was at least one call where the values of both
uio_segflag and uio_procp passing were uninitalized garbage from prior
I guess the cleanest way to fix this is to add a new UIO segflag,
UIO_NONE, meaning that only uio_resid is valid; and also uio_procp, if
its value is non-NULL, but a NULL value is allowed). Do you buy that?
Jason? Matt? Anyone else have an opinion?
