Re: [PATCH v3 1/3] glibc: Upgrade to 2.35 (RFC)

Martin Jansa

Ubuntu patched their package shortly after upgrading to glibc-2.34 in Ubuntu-21.10, see: (20.10.7-0ubuntu4) impish; urgency=medium

  * d/p/seccomp-add-support-for-clone3-syscall-in-default-policy.patch: Fix
    failure with new glibc clone3 syscall adding it to the default seccomp
    policy (LP: #1943049).

AFAIK Ubuntu isn't affected anymore, I've updated and I'm fine with dropping the patch now (it was useful before, but now distributions had enough time to prepare for 2.34 changes).

Here I am, back again with another post which I think the internet needs. It took me days to figure it out and I can’t imagine there aren’t more people who are running into the same issue.

Hi khem,

Upstream glibc reject it because the latest docker has supported it[1], and upstream glibc does not backward compatibility with old docker[2]

In order to build Yocto with uninative in old docker, we need this local patch

How old is the docker and I assume
It’s some distribution needing it ? 

If no seccomp policy is requested, then the built-in default policy in dockerd applies. This has no rule for &quot;clone3&quot; defined, nor any default errno defined. So when runc receives the con...

I intentionally dropped it since upstream glibc will not accept this
patch since its not glibc problem but
rather container runtime problem. Can you investigate that path before
we reapply it. Maintaining a rejected patch is last thing we want to
