Errata 005_ifrtlabel

PuffyThe OpenBSD team released an Errata entry 005_ifrtlabel for OpenBSD 4.2 in January.

I guess a binpatch is better late than never.

Quote from the henning@'s commit message:

MFC, initial fix by Chris Cappucino, more complete fix by me:
make sure users of rtlabel_id2name() can deal with no label present, by not calling it when the label id is 0 (initial fix) and also checking for rtlabel_id2name() returning NULL (complete fix). original rtlabel code had that all right, the newer rtlabel bound to an interface code not.
impact: local users can cause a kernel panic by using the SIOCGIFRTLABEL ioctl on interfaces with no route label assigned.

I've made binpatches for i386, amd64 and sparc64.

  1. Mike, I'd just like to thank for doing these binpatches and allowing others to use them. They have helped me maintain a Soekris 4801 up to date
