Version 1.24

* bootstrap: Restore tar-specific code lost during last
sync from gnulib (241b72ffad).
* src/misc.c (chdir_do): Remove unused automatic variable.

tar: use more-accurate diagnostic when intermediate mkdir fails
Without this change, if tar tried to extract a file A/B/C, noticed
that A/B didn't exist, attempted to mkdir A/B, and the mkdir
failed, it did not diagnose the mkdir failure, but simply reported
the failure to open A/B/C. This sometimes led to confusion
because it wasn't clear what tar was trying to do, in particular
that tar tried to mkdir A/B. With this patch, tar issues two
diagnostics in this case: one for A/B and the other for A/B/C.
Problem reported by Hauke Laging in
* gnulib.modules: Remove faccessat.
* src/extract.c (make_directories): New arg INTERDIR_MADE.
Diagnose mkdir failure. Return 0 on success, nonzero on failure,
as opposed to nonzero iff some directory was created. All callers
changed. Simplify the code when mkdir fails, by checking whether
the desired file exists unless errno==EEXIST: this is more robust.
* tests/ New test, to check this.
* tests/ (TESTSUITE_AT): Add it.
* tests/ Include it.
tests: port to NFS file servers with clock skew
Several of the tests assumed that a newly created file cannot
have a time stamp dated in the future. This assumption is not
true when files are served by a remote host whose clock is
slightly in advance of ours. Fix the problems that I observed
when running "make check" a couple of times on such a server.

clock-skew warnings.

tar: prefer openat-style functions
This change replaces traditional functions like 'open' with the
POSIX.1-2008 functions like 'openat'. Mostly this is an internal
refactoring change, in preparation for further changes to close
some races.
* gnulib.modules: Add faccessat, linkat, mkfifoat, renameat,
Remove save-cwd.
* src/ (tar_LDADD): Add $(LIB_EACCESS).
* tests/ (LDADD): Likewise.
* src/common.h (chdir_fd): New extern var.

(extract_link, apply_delayed_links):
Use fstatat rather than stat or lstat.
* src/misc.c (maybe_backup_file, deref_stat): Likewise.
* src/extract.c (make_directories): Use mkdirat rather than mkdir.
Use faccessat rather than access. This fixes a minor permissions
bug when tar is running setuid (who would want to do that?!).
(open_output_file): Use openat rather than open.
In the process, this removes support for Masscomp's O_CTG files,
which aren't compatible with openat's signature. Masscomp! Wow!
That's a blast from the past. As far as I know, that operating
system hasn't been supported for more than 20 years.

to date. This code won't scale well, but is good enough for now.

streamsavedir rather than savedir.

tar: extract symlink attributes, close some symlink-related races
* NEWS: Describe symlink-extraction improvements.
* src/extract.c (enum permstatus): Remove.
(fchmod, fchown): Define dummy replacement macros if the system
does not supply them.
(implemented): New function.
(struct delayed_set_stat): Remove members invert_permissions,
permstatus. They were too confusing, and tried to do too much
in too-little space. Instead, add members current_mode,
current_mode_mask, interdir, atflag. All users changed.
(struct delayed_link): Add members mode, atime, mtime, to support
platforms such as BSD where symlinks have these attributes.
All users changed.
(fd_chmod): Renamed from fdchmod. New argument atflag. Check for
operation not supported at run-time, not at configure-time. Put
fd argument first. All callers changed.
(fd_chown): Likewise, renaming from fdchown.
(fd_stat): Likewise, renaming from fdstat.
(set_mode): Remove args stat_info, cur_info, invert_permissions,
permstatus. Add args mode, mode_mask, current_mode,
atflag. All callers changed. Close some races. Use an easier-to
understand method for computing permissions. Work around POSIX
incompatibility in Linux fchmodat. Support extraction of symlink
modes, if the OS allows it.
(set_stat): Remove args cur_info, invert_permissions, permstatus.
Add args current_mode, current_mode_mask, interdir, atflag.
All callers changed. Close some races. Support extraction of
attributes on symlinks, if the OS allows it.
(delay_set_stat): Remove args invert_permissions, permstatus.
Add args current_mode, current_mode_mask, mode, atflag.
The ST arg can be null now, indicating that it's an intermediate
directory. All callers changed.
(repair_delayed_set_stat, apply_nonancestor_delayed_set_stat):
Close some races.
(extract_dir): Also be paranoid if only --same-permissions, due
to semantics of setgid and setuid directories on some hosts.
This closes a race on those hosts. Simplify calculation of
delay_set_stat arguments; the old code was truly strange and
probably wrong in some border cases.
(extract_dir, extract_file, extract_node, extract_fifo): Don't
rely on
unspecified behavior in mode arg of open, mknod, etc. Instead,
mask out those bits when creating the file, and add them later via
fchmod or chmodat.
(open_output_file): file_name is now const. Add arg current_mode,
current_mode_mask. All callers changed. When overwriting
old files,
refuse to overwrite something that is not a regular file, since
we're extracting a regular file.
(extract_file): Remove the FIXME comment. Whatever the protection
issues were, they should be fixed now. As a result of all
the other
API changes, we now use fchmod etc. rather than chmod etc.,
some races.
(create_placeholder_file, apply_delayed_links): Record desired
mode and times for symlinks, for OSes that support that.
2010-09-16 Paul Eggert <>
tar: tar -x without --incremental no longer sets atime again
* src/extract.c (set_stat): Use UTIME_OMIT rather than UTIME_NOW.
The UTIME_NOW was there only to emulate the previous behavior of
using the current time, and the previous behavior was there only
because before we started assuming POSIX.1-2008 there was no
portable way to get the effect of UTIME_NOW.
tar: another --atime-preserve race fix
* src/common.h (set_file_atime): Add parentfd arg.
* src/compare.c (diff_file): Use it.
* src/create.c (dump_file0): Likewise. This closes yet another
race condition with symbolic links.
* src/misc.c (set_file_atime): Add parentfd arg.
tar: --atime-preserve fixes for races etc.
This patch fixes a race condition in the --atime-preserve=replace
option, which might cause tar to improperly follow a symbolic
It also drops the use of the _FIOSATIME ioctl of Solaris 2.x
and later, which loses resolution on time stamps. Modern Solaris
systems support full-resolution time stamps in the kernel, and
it's not worth the hassle of testing this call, useful only in
no-longer-supported Solaris variants.
Also, it undoes a change I recently introduced to the --compare
option, which caused it to not follow symbolic links unless the
--dereference option was also used. Quite possibly this change is
a good idea, but the old behavior was documented and the change
should not have been installed casually.
* Don't check for stropts.h and sys/filio.h.
* gnulib.modules: Add futimens, utimensat. Remove futimens.
* src/common.h (fd_utimensat): New decl.
* src/compare.c (diff_file, diff_multivol):
Don't use open_read_flags: those are for --create only.
* src/create.c (dump_file0): Adjust to set_file_atime changes.
Pass fstatat_flags to set_file_atime, so that symbolic links are
not followed inadvertantly.
* src/extract.c: Don't include utimens.h.
(set_stat): Use fd_utimensat ant UTIME_NOW rather than fdutimens.
* src/misc.c: Don't include utimens.h, stropts.h, sys/filio.h.
(fd_utimensat): New function.
(set_file_atime): Use it. New arg atflag, controlling symlink
handling. All callers changed.
2010-09-14 Paul Eggert <>
* tar: close some race conditions when extracting
* Check for fchmod and fchown. Don't check
for utimes.
* src/extract.c (fdchmod, fdchown, fdstat): New functions.
(set_mode, set_stat): New arg FD. All callers changed.
This avoids some race conditions between closing a regular file
and setting its metadata, and it's a bit faster.

tar: don't worry about fdopendir closing its argument
* NEWS: Don't mention dirfd; no longer needed.
* gnulib.modules: Remove dirfd.
* src/create.c (get_directory_entries): Remove the code dealing
with dirfd failures, as the new fdopendir replacement doesn't
close its argument so we don't need to call dirfd. See
and gnulib commit 970c9038e4cca46e1b037ae0a6d574dfae6a7327.
* NEWS: Fix wording typo in previous change.
Reported by Jim Meyering.
tar: live within system-supplied limits on file descriptors
* NEWS: Note the change. Mention dirfd and fdopendir.
* gnulib.modules: Add dirfd and fdopendir. The code was already
using fdopendir; dirfd is a new need.
* src/common.h (open_searchdir_flags, get_directory_entries):
(subfile_open, restore_parent_fd, tar_stat_close): New decls.
(check_exclusion_tags): Adjust signature to match code change.
* src/create.c (IMPOSTOR_ERRNO): New constant.
(check_exclusion_tags): First arg is now a struct tar_stat_info
const *, not an fd. All callers changed.
(dump_regular_file, dump_file0): A zero fd represents an unused
slot, so play it safe if the fd member is zero here. A negative
fd represents the negation of an errno value, so play it safe and
do not assign -1 to fd merely because an open fails.
(open_failure_recover, get_directory_entries, restore_parent_fd):
(subfile_open): New functions. These help to recover from file
descriptor exhaustion.
(dump_dir, dump_file0): Use them.
(dump_file0): Use tar_stat_close instead of rolling our own close.

subfile_open, etc., to recover from file descriptor exhaustion.
* src/names.c (add_hierarchy_to_namelist): Likewise.
(collect_and_sort_names): A negative fd represents the negation
of an errno value, so play it safe and do not assign -1 to fd.
* src/tar.c (decode_options): Set open_searchdir_flags.
Add O_CLOEXEC to all the open flags.
(tar_stat_close): New function, which knows how to deal with
new convention for directory streams and file descriptors.
Diagnose 'close' failures.
(tar_stat_destroy): Use it.
* src/tar.h (struct tar_stat_info): New member dirstream.
fd now has the negative of an errno value, not merely -1, if
the file could not be opened, so that failures to reopen
are better-diagnosed later.

Apply fdsavedir to a dup of the file descriptor, since we need a
file descriptor for openat etc. as well, and fdsavedir (perhaps
unwisely) consumes its file descriptor when successful.
Do not consume st->fd when successful; this simplifies the caller.

a directory, during incremental dumps.
(dump_file0): Use fstatat, openat, and readlinkat for better
When opening a file, use the result of fstat on the file
rather than the fstatat on the directory entry, to avoid some race
conditions. No need to reopen the directory since we now
no longer
close it. Change "did we open the file?" test from 0 <= fd to
0 < fd since fd == 0 now represents uninitialized.

not parent_device. Also, accept basename and fullname of entry.
All uses changed.
* src/incremen.c (update_parent_directory): Accept struct
tar_stat_info for parent, not name. All callers changed.
Use fstatat for safer directory traversal.

tar_stat_info instead of device and cmdline. All callers changed.
When descending into a subdirectory, use openat and fstat for

tar: remove lint discovered by Sun C compiler
* src/common.h (WARN_ALL): Don't mask with 0xffffffff; on a 32-bit
host, 0xffffffff is of type 'unsigned int', which makes WARN_ALL
an unsigned int value that is too large to fit into an int, and
the C standard says that this has undefined behavior. The mask is
