Description Jelmer Vernooij 2008-01-19 11:03:27 UTC
We still use the thread-unsafe gethostbyaddr():

lib/socket/socket_ip.c:	he = gethostbyaddr((char *)&peer_addr.sin_addr, sizeof(peer_addr.sin_addr), AF_INET);
lib/socket/socket_ip.c:	he = gethostbyaddr((char *)&peer_addr.sin6_addr, sizeof(peer_addr.sin6_addr), AF_INET6)

Instead, we should be using getnaemeinfo() or gethostbyaddr_r().
