[Qemu-devel] [PULL 33/38] linux-user: Use direct syscalls for setuid(),

From: riku . voipio
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PULL 33/38] linux-user: Use direct syscalls for setuid(), etc
Date: Wed, 25 May 2016 13:32:05 +0300

From: Peter Maydell <address@hidden>

On Linux the setuid(), setgid(), etc system calls have different semantics
from the libc functions. The libc functions follow POSIX and update the
credentials for all threads in the process; the system calls update only
the thread which makes the call. (This impedance mismatch is worked around
in libc by signalling all threads to tell them to do a syscall, in a
byzantine and fragile way; see http://ewontfix.com/17/.)

Since in linux-user we are trying to emulate the system call semantics,
we must implement all these syscalls to directly call the underlying
host syscall, rather than calling the host libc function.
