Description Walter Haidinger 2005-03-09 07:27:11 UTC
In lib/sendfile.c, line 218,
   nwritten = sendfilev64(tofd, vec, sfvcnt, &xferred);
a 32-bit structure is used for the 64-bit call sendfilev64 (line 180): [*]
   struct sendfilevec vec[2];

gcc 3.4.2 under Solaris 9 then complains during build:
Compiling lib/sendfile.c
lib/sendfile.c: In function `sys_sendfile':
lib/sendfile.c:188: warning: cast from pointer to integer of different size

Line 188 reads:
   vec[0].sfv_off = (off_t)header->data;

Casting to off64_t fixes the size bug, the pointer to integer warning remains.
I have not digged into the sources far enough yet to provide a fix for this too. 

If forced to detect the off64_t datatype 
(see https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2428), the following patch 
adds the proper 64-bit datatype.
Please note that the patch below is only a PARTIAL FIX, i.e. the casting 
problem bug remains and there will be most probably other places
to change the off_t type to off64_t.

                vec[1].sfv_fd = fromfd;

Also, please note that some calculations with the return value of sendfilev64(),
nwritten, and the offset is done, so this might be a more serious problem!

Btw, the same bug exists in configure at line 37670 in the test for 
the solaris sendfilev64 support:
  struct sendfilevec vec[2];

Changing it to 
  struct sendfilevec64 vec[2];
makes conftest run without a warning.

If it's still broken in 3.5, please reopen.
3.0 isn't supported anymore.
