Hi All,

Here’s the situation. In the NonStop port, since time immemorial, we’ve had
a breakage in 5509 that I’ve finally had the chance to track down. The error
report at the breakage is:

./trash directory.t5509-fetch-push-namespaces/original: GIT_TRACE=true
GIT_PACKET_TRACE=true GIT_TRANSLOOP_DEBUG=true git push pushee-namespaced

Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.

transport-helper.c uses read instead of wrapper.c’s xread to do its work. It
looks like when the buffer size calculation is done passed into read, we’re
getting a very large value, more than SSIZE_MAX. In udt_do_read:

bytes = read(t->src, t->buf + t->bufuse, BUFFERSIZE - t->bufuse);

generates EINVAL. This may be because unidirectional_transfer.bufuse is
size_t instead of ssize_t. I can try to fix this a number of ways, but it
seems that xread is likely the way to go. udt_do_write already uses xwrite.

I’m looking to fix on or after 2.13.5 (7234152).

Opinions?

Thanks,
Randall
