Oracle Linux Bug Fix Advisory ELBA-2011-0239


The following updated rpms for Oracle Linux 4 have been uploaded to the 
Unbreakable Linux Network:





Description of changes:

- correctly parse IPv4 addresses on 64-bit big-endian systems which don't
   support IPv6 (#651364, upstream #425)

- check if we've gotten disconnected when checking for a result (#604945,
   from upstream #350, Ralf Haferkamp by way of Jaroslav ?karvada)

- unblock SIGPIPE while closing the connection in the child's part of
   atfork(), so that it can get delivered before we reset the signal
   handler (#621586)

- add proposed patch for upstream #421: sometimes errno gets reset before we
   return control to libc (#613555)

- pull in fix for upstream #313, which returns a clean error when we've
   failed to parse our configuration correctly, in this case due to a 
   than-handled nss_initgroups_ignoreusers setting (#557927)
- when closing a context, clean it up so that we won't try to issue an 
   when we go to use it again for something else (#574306)
- pull in fix for upstream #297, to just return a failure if our 
   is asked to find IPv6 addresses by the caller but we weren't built 
with IPv6
   support (#205243)

- backport workaround to just give up if one of our lookups recurses 
into our
   own host resolution routine, which would otherwise cause a deadlock or a
   crash (#448884)

- add updated version of patch from upstream bug #305 to drop connection if
   we get any error while trying to read the peer's address for what we 
   was our socket (Jeff Bastian, #563362)

- don't close a oneshot connection while we're in the middle of answering a
   specific query (#566632)

- bump buildrequires on openldap-devel to at least 2.2.13-12.el4_8.2
