[PATCH for-4.16] freebsd/privcmd: fix MMAP_RESOURCE ioctl definition

Posted by Roger Pau Monne 2 weeks, 6 days ago
Current ioctl definition was wrong in both FreeBSD and Xen sources, as
the MMAP_RESOURCE ioctl needs to copy back the size of the resource
when passed a zero address and size. FreeBSD encodes in the definition
of the ioctl number whether parameters should be copied in (W) and/or
copied out (R). The current definition for MMAP_RESOURCE is lacking
the copy out part (R), and thus the call to query the size of a
resource would always return 0.

This change will break the current ioctl interface, the tools can
however fall back to using the foreign memory interface in order to
map resources from guests.

This was a shortcoming from when the hypercall and ioctl gained the
ability to query the size of the resources, as originally the
MMAP_RESOURCE ioctl didn't need to copy out any data.

The change only affects FreeBSD, and it's only a change in a
definition of an ioctl, so it's unlikely to break existing code logic.
Without this change Xen tools won't be able to use the MMAP_RESOURCE
ioctl.

I guess you found this while trying to fix test-resource, in which case
a further argument for the change is "the unit tests now pass on FreeBSD" ?
