Commit Message

Changes from previous patchset: I've taken vapier's suggestion to use
positive variable names, added a NEWS entry, and a pair of tests. The
tests turned out to be much larger than the primary change, so I've
split them into a separate patch.

This option causes the default library search path to be skipped,
using only the paths in DT_RPATH, LD_LIBRARY_PATH, and
DT_RUNPATH. This option implies --inhibit-cache, as there is no point
in searching a cache of system libraries when we are not using the
system libraries at all.

This is necessary to preserve negative search results when isolating
applications from the system libraries. This can be important when an
application uses dlopen at run time to load optional libraries.

When a shared library is required by the application, it can be
isolated by putting appropriate versions of the libraries in
directories specified in LD_LIBRARY_PATH, because the library search
will always terminate before potentially loading any system libraries.

On the other hand, if the application should be run without an
optional library, the search will proceed past the LD_LIBRARY_PATH
directories into the default system libraries, potentially causing an
incorrect library to be linked.

Maybe use a bool for this?

Thanks,

If these are meant to be the SONAMEs of libc and libdl (with "/" 
prepended), you should use LIBC_SO and LIBDL_SO from <gnu/lib-names.h>.  
Some configurations have different SONAMEs (look for libc= and libdl= in 
shlib-versions files).  Also watch out for any interaction with Florian's 
patches to move libdl into libc.

Throughout this patch, there should be a space before '(' in function 
calls; tests should follow GNU style, like other glibc code.  (In the GCC 
and GDB testsuites, it's useful to have code with a range of different 
styles, to make sure those tools work well with such code, but that 
doesn't apply to the glibc testsuite.)

Same comment about using <gnu/lib-names.h> applies here.

Again, GNU style fixes.  Return type on its own line, space before '(', 
open braces on their own lines (and indented from the "if").

None of the other options in that file use "bool" even when they seem
to only be used as booleans. I assumed this was out of a desire to
keep C89 compatibility, though now that I look I see lots of other
places in the codebase that don't do that.

From 61d66e7ddca5f7a2dedf240c940ccb76b45946a9 Mon Sep 17 00:00:00 2001

Subject: [PATCH v2 1/2] rtld: Add --no-default-paths option
To: libc-alpha@sourceware.org

This option causes the default library search path to be skipped,
using only the paths in DT_RPATH, LD_LIBRARY_PATH, and
DT_RUNPATH. This option implies --inhibit-cache, as there is no point
in searching a cache of system libraries when we are not using the
system libraries at all.

This is necessary to preserve negative search results when isolating
applications from the system libraries. This can be important when an
application uses dlopen at run time to load optional libraries.

When a shared library is required by the application, it can be
isolated by putting appropriate versions of the libraries in
directories specified in LD_LIBRARY_PATH, because the library search
will always terminate before potentially loading any system libraries.

On the other hand, if the application should be run without an
optional library, the search will proceed past the LD_LIBRARY_PATH
directories into the default system libraries, potentially causing an
incorrect library to be linked.
