|| ||[BK SUMMARY] fix NGROUPS hard limit|
|| ||Thu, 10 Oct 2002 18:33:45 -0700 (PDT)|
This patchset removes the hard NGROUPS limit. It has been in use in a similar
form (but with a sysctl-set limit) on our systems for some time.
The last changeset is of questionable value - nfsiod is not included by or
referenced by anything. Perhaps it should just be removed?
I have a separate patch to convert XFS to the generic qsort(), which I will
bounce to SGI if/when this gets pulled.
There is a small change needed for glibc, and I will send that patch to the
glibc people if/when this gets pulled.
Lastly, this does not fixup all the architectures. I have other patchsets for
that, which need to be reviewed by arch maintainers.
Please do a
bk pull http://suncobalt.bkbits.net/ngroups-2.5

fix usage of NGROUPS in nfsd and svcauth

Remove the limit of 32 groups. We now have a per-task, dynamic array of
groups, which is kept sorted and refcounted.
This ChangeSet incorporates all the core functionality. but does not fixup
all the incorrect usages of groups. That is in a seperate ChangeSet.

Add generic qsort() and bsearch(): qsort() from BSD, bsearch() from glibc
