7551d83c353e040b32c6ac205e577dbc5f2c8955 27-Nov-2017 pfg <pfg@FreeBSD.org> various: general adoption of SPDX licensing ID tags.

Mainly focus on files that use BSD 2-Clause license, however the tool I
was using misidentified many licenses so this was mostly a manual - error
prone - task.

The Software Package Data Exchange (SPDX) group provides a specification
to make it easier for automated tools to detect and summarize well known
opensource licenses. We are gradually adopting the specification, noting
that the tags are considered only advisory and do not, in any way,
superceed or replace the license texts.

No functional change intended.

Special thanks to Wind River for providing access to "The Duke of
Highlander" tool: an older (2014) run over FreeBSD tree was useful as a
starting point.

Initially, only tag files that use BSD 4-Clause "Original" license.

f67e4a8fc7fc95c74bd6c09d3453200de47faea5 19-Mar-2001 alfred <alfred@FreeBSD.org> Bring in a hybrid of SunSoft's transport-independent RPC (TI-RPC) and
associated changes that had to happen to make this possible as well as
bugs fixed along the way.

Bring in required TLI library routines to support this.

Since we don't support TLI we've essentially copied what NetBSD
has done, adding a thin layer to emulate direct the TLI calls
into BSD socket calls.

This is mostly from Sun's tirpc release that was made in 1994,
however some fixes were backported from the 1999 release (supposedly
only made available after this porting effort was underway).

The submitter has agreed to continue on and bring us up to the
1999 release.

Several key features are introduced with this update:
Client calls are thread safe. (1999 code has server side thread
safe)
Updated, a more modern interface.

Many userland updates were done to bring the code up to par with
the recent RPC API.

There is an update to the pthreads library, a function
pthread_main_np() was added to emulate a function of Sun's threads
library.

While we're at it, bring in NetBSD's lockd, it's been far too
long of a wait.

New rpcbind(8) replaces portmap(8) (supporting communication over
an authenticated Unix-domain socket, and by default only allowing
set and unset requests over that channel). It's much more secure
than the old portmapper.

Umount(8), mountd(8), mount_nfs(8), nfsd(8) have also been upgraded
to support TI-RPC and to support IPV6.

Umount(8) is also fixed to unmount pathnames longer than 80 chars,
which are currently truncated by the Kernel statfs structure.

a51dec7beef5ca5ded9728ffb90982d0311adfc1 25-May-1997 wpaul <wpaul@FreeBSD.org> This commit adds support to ypbind(8) for binding to non-local servers.

The standard SunOS ypbind(8) (and, until now, the FreeBSD ypbind)
only selects servers based on whether or not they respond to clnt_broadcast().
Ypbind(8) broadcasts to the YPPROC_DOMAIN_NONACK procedure and waits
for answers; whichever server answers first is the one ypbind uses
for the local client binding.

This mechanism fails when binding across subnets is desired. In order
for a client on one subnet to bind to a server on another subnet, the
gateway(s) between the client and server must be configured to forward
broadcasts. If this is not possible, then a slave server must be
installed on the remote subnet. If this is also not possible, you
have to force the client to bind to the remote server with ypset(8).

Unfortunately, this last option is less than ideal. If the remote
server becomes unavailable, ypbind(8) will lose its binding and
revert to its broadcast-based search behavior. Even if there are
other servers available, or even if the original server comes back
up, ypbind(8) will not be able to create a new binding since all
the servers are on remote subnets where its broadcasts won't be heard.
If the administrator isn't around to run ypset(8) again, the system
is hosed.

In some Linux NIS implementations, there exists a yp.conf file where
you can explicitly specify a server address and avoid the use of
ypbind altogether. This is not desireable since it removes the
possibility of binding to an alternate server in the event that the
one specified in yp.conf crashes.

Some people have mentioned to me how they though the 'restricted mode'
operation (using the -S flag) could be used as a solution for this
problem since it allows one to specify a list of servers. In fact,
this is not the case: the -S flag just tells ypbind(8) that when it
listens for replies to its broadcasts, it should only honor them if
the replying hosts appear in the specified restricted list.

This behavior has now been changed. If you use the -m flag in conjunction
with the -S flag, ypbind(8) will use a 'many-cast' instead of a broadcast
for choosing a server. In many-cast mode, ypbind(8) will transmit directly
to the YPPROC_DOMAIN_NONACK procedure of all the servers specified in
the restricted mode list and then wait for a reply. As with the broadcast
method, whichever server from the list answers first is used for the
local binding. All other behavior is the same: ypbind(8) continues
to ping its bound server every 60 seconds to insure it's still alive
and will many-cast again if the server fails to respond. The code used
to achieve this is in yp_ping.c; it includes a couple of modified RPC
library routines.

Note that it is not possible to use this mechanism without using
the restricted list since we need to know the addresses of the available
NIS servers ahead of time in order to transmit to them.

- If a child receives a SIGTERM, it will call the terminate() function

- If the parent fails to read data back from the child because the

can cause the parent to SEGV. Make handle_children() detect this

f369859c3287504df6edba262c6f8a9ba1cc8ce3 20-Jul-1995 wpaul <wpaul@FreeBSD.org> Add a -S option to ypbind that allows the following:

-S domainname,server1,server2,server3,...
The -S flag allows the system administrator to lock ypbind to a
particular domain and group of NIS servers. Up to ten servers can
be specified. There must not be any spaces between the commas in
the domain/server specification. This option is used to insure that
that the system binds only to one domain and only to one of the
specified servers, which is useful for systems that are both NIS
servers and NIS clients: it provides a way to restrict what ma-
chines the system can bind to without the need for specifying the
-ypset or -ypsetme options, which are often considered to be secu-
rity holes. The specified servers must have valid entries in the
local /etc/hosts file. IP addresses may be specified in place of
hostnames. If ypbind can't make sense ouf of the arguments, it will
ignore the -S flag and continue running normally.

Note that ypbind will consider the domainname specified with the -S
flag to be the system default domain.

(According to what Garrett showed me, OSF/1 actually only allows 4 servers
to be specified. Ten seemed to be a bit more reasonable to me.)

actually had this done at one point and lost it somewhere along the
line. Again, this is an honest to gosh bug fix only: no functionality
is changed.

- After a child broadcaster process dies or is killed, set its dom_pipe_fds
descriptors to -1 so that the 'READFD > 0' test in the select() loop
does the right thing.

Since descriptor values can be re-used, failure to do this can lead
to a situation where a descriptor for an RPC socket can be mistaken for
a pipe. If this happens, RPC sockets could be incorrectly handed off to
handle_children(), which would then clear the descriptor from the select()
descriptor mask and prevent svc_getreqset() from handling them. The end
result would be that some RPC events would go unserviced. Curiously,
the failures only happen intermittently.

Rod, Jordan and David have more or less given me the OK on this
with the understanding that it doesn't change any functionality.
It doesn't: these are bug fixes only. No other part of the system
should be affected. Of course, since I'm the only one working on
NIS, you'll just have to take my word on it. :)

Fixes for the following annoyingly subtle bugs:

- ypbindproc_setdom_2 is supposed to be declared void *, not boot_t *,
and it fails to correctly signal failures back to the ypset(8) command:
we need to call one of the svcerr_*() functions (in this case,
svcerr_noprog() seems a logical choice -- we're really cheating
a bit here because nothing else quite fits) to tell ypset that the
attempt to set the binding for a domain failed. If we don't do this,
failed ypset attempts either appear (incorrectly) to succeed, or
they time out.

- The lock handling for child processes isn't quite right. The
child broadcaster processes have to release all locks on the
binding files and the ypbind.lock file.

- The parent ypbind process will SEGV if you do the following:

-- start ypbind with the -ypset or -ypsetme flag
-- type 'ypwhich -d random_unserved_domain'
-- type 'ypset -d random_unserved_domain anyhost'
-- type 'ypwhich -d random_unserved_domain' again
-- wait about 60 seconds

What happens is this: the ypwhich command causes ypbind to fork a
broadcaster process that searches for a server for random_unserved_domain.
If you then use ypset to force a binding while this process is still alive,
the state flags that tell the ypbind parent process that the child
is running will be cleared. The second ypwhich command then causes
a *second* child process to be forked for random_unserved_domain,
which is verbotten. When the first broadcaster exits and tells the
parent that it wasn't able to find a server for the domain, the parent
clobbers the entry for random_unserved_domain. Then the second broadcaster
exits and the same thing happens, only trying to clobber the entry
twice causes a SEGV.

The fix for this is a slight change in program structure: since we
can't have more than one broadcaster for a given domain at a time,
we save the pipe descriptors and pid for the child broadcaster in members
of the _dom_binding struct for the domain. (As a side effect, we
can get rid of the global child_fds variable.) So when rpc_received()
finds that it's been asked to do a ypset for a domain for which a
broadcaster process exists, it sends a SIGINT to the child to kill it
and closes the pipe to the now-dead child. This keeps everything in sync
and insures that we don't leak file descriptors.

- ping() should be using YPPROC_DOMAIN rather than YPPROC_DOMAIN_NONACK
when it does its clnt_call() to the server.

- Removed the check for client_handle == NULL in ping() and make
client_handle local to ping instead of a member of the _dom_binding
struct. This fixes another potential ypset problem: using ypset to
force a binding to a machine that has an NIS server but which *doesn't*
support the domain we're after can result in permanently bogus bindings.

- the 'server OK' message prints the wrong IP address.

- Make the child process reaper signal-driven. (Previously, we called reaper()
once a second each time we went through the select() loop. This was
convenient, but inefficient.)

- Increase main select() timeout from 1 second to 60 seconds and use
this as the ping timer instead of using timestamps in the _dom_binding
structure. This nd the reaper() change noted above makes ypbind a little
less CPU-intensive.

- Don't flag EINTR's from select() as errors since they will happen as a
result of incoming SIGCHLD's interrupting select().

- Prevent possible resource hogging. Currently we malloc() memory
each time a user process asks us to establish a binding for a domain,
but we never free it. This could lead to serious memory leakage if a
'clever' user did something like ask ypwhich to check the bindings
for domains 0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0 through 9.9.9.9.9.9.9.9.9.9 inclusive.
(This would also make a mess out of the /var/yp/binding directory.)

We now avoid this silliness by a) limiting the maximum number of
simultaneous bindings we can manage to 200, and b) free()ing _dom_binding
structures of secondary domains whose servers have stopped responding.
We unlink the /var/yp/binding/domain.vers files for the free()ed
domains too.

(This is safe to do since a client can prod us into reestablishing the
binding, at which time we'll simply allocate a new _dom_binding structure
for it.)

We keep count of the total number of domains. If asked to
allocate more than the maximum, we return an error. I have yet to hear
of anybody needing 200 simultaneous NIS bindings, so this should be
enough. (I chose the number 200 arbitrarily. It can be increased if need
be.)

- Changed "server not responding"/"server OK" messages to display server
IP addresses again since it looks spiffier.

- Use daemon() to daemonify ourselves,

- Added a SIGTERM handler that removes all binding files and unregisters
the ypbind service from the portmapper when a SIGTERM in received.

- The comment 'blow away everything in BINDINGDIR' has no associated code.
Give it some: clean out /var/yp/binding at startup (if it exists).

This completes my ypbind wishlist. Barring bug fixes, I shouldn't need to
go poking around in here anymore. (Of course, this means I can start
working on my ypserv whishlist now... :)

b72b2e3557fca50d6b69c47a937520cbe45c26d3 26-Apr-1995 wpaul <wpaul@FreeBSD.org> ypbind.c: Major overhaul.

- Moved to a more client-driven model. We aggressively attempt to keep
the default domain bound (as before) but we give up on non-default
domains if we lose contact with a server and fail to get a response
after one round of broadcasting. This helps drastically reduce the
amount of network bandwitdh that ypbind consumes: if a client references
the secondary domain at some later point, this will prod ypbind into
establishing a new binding anyway, so continuously broadcasting without
need is pointless.

Note that we still actively seek out a binding for our default domain
even if no client program has queried us yet. I'm not exactly sure if
this matches SunOS's behavior or not, but I decided to do it this way
since we can get into all sorts of trouble if our default domain comes
unbound. Even so, we're still much quieter than we used to be.

- Removed a bunch of no-longer pertinent comments and a couple of
chunks of #ifdef 0'ed code that no longer fit in to the new layout.

- Theo deRaadt must have become frustrated with the callback mechanism
in clnt_broadcast(), because he shamelessly stole the clnt_broadcast()
code right out of the RPC library and hacked it up to suit his needs.
(Comments and all! :)

I can understand why: clnt_broadcast() blocks while awaiting replies.
Changing this behavior requires surgery. However, you can work around
this: fork the broadcast into a child process and relay the results
back to the parent via a pipe. (Careful obervation has shown that the
SunOS ypbind forks children for broadcasting too, though I can only
guess what sort of interprocess communication it uses. pipe() seems to
do the job well enough.)

This may seem like the long way around, but it's not really that
hard to implement, and I'd prefer to use documented RPC library functions
wherever possible. We're careful to limit the number of simultaneous
broadcasters to avoid swamping the system (the current limit is 5).
Each clnt_broadcast() call only sends out a small number of packets
at increasing intervals. We're also careful not to spawn more than one
bradcaster for a given domain.

- Used clntudp_bufcreate() and clnt_call() to implement a ping()
function for directly querying a particular server so that we can
check if it's still alive. This lets me completely remove the old
bradcasting code and use actual RPC library calls instead, at the
cost of more than a few handfulls of torn-out hair. (Make no mistake
folks: I *HATE* RPC.) Currently, the ping interval is one minute.

- Fixed another potential 'nfds too big for select()' bug: use
_rpc_dtablesize() instead of getdtablesize().

- Quieted gcc -Wall a bit.

- Probably a bunch of other stuff that I've forgotten.

ypbind.8:

- Updated man page to reflect modifications.

ypwhich.c:

- Small mind-o fix from last time: decode error results from
ypbind correctly (*groan*)

yplib.c:

- same as above

- Change behavior of _yp_dobind() a little: if we get back a 'Domain
not bound' error for a given domain, retry a few times before giving
up and passing the error back to the caller. We have to sleep for a
few seconds between tries since the 'Domain not bound' error comes
back immediately (by repeatedly looping, we end up pounding on ypbind).
We retry at most 20 times at 5 second intervals. This gives us a full
minute to get a response. This seems to deviate a bit from SunOS
behavior -- it appears to wait forever -- but I don't like the idea
of perpetually hanging inside a library call.

Note that this should fix the problems some people have with bindings
not being established fast enough at boot time; sometimes amd is started
in /etc/rc after ypbind has run but before it gets a binding set up. The
automounter gets annoyed at this and tends to exit. By pausing ther YP
calls until a binding is ready, we avoid this situation.

- Another _yp_dobind() change: if we determine that our binding files
are unlocked or nonexistent, jump directly to code that pokes ypbind
into restablishing the binding. Again, if it fails, we'll time out
eventually and return.

be813a3b68f7e9be9bfef131c96c99089a98aa39 21-Apr-1995 wpaul <wpaul@FreeBSD.org> small NIS binding fixes:

ypbind.c: if a client program asks ypbind for the name of the server
for a particular domain, and there isn't a binding for that domain
available yet, ypbind needs to supply a status value along with its
failure message. Set yprespbody.ypbind_error before returning from
a ypbindproc_domain request.

yplib.c: properly handle the error status messages ypbind now has the
ability to send us. Add a ypbinderr_string() function to decode the
error values.

ypwhich.c: handle ypbind errors correctly: yperr_string() can't handle
ypbind_status messages -- use ypbinderr_string instead.

77cd0ce3be5db6841563de22fdfd17dac4e5f8bc 15-Apr-1995 wpaul <wpaul@FreeBSD.org> In environments with multiple NIS servers (a master and several slaves)
one ypbind broadcast can yield several responses. This can lead to
some confusion: the syslog message from ypbind will indicate a rebinding
to the first server that responds, but we may subsequently change our
binding to another server when the other responses arrive. This results
in ypbind reporting 'server OK' to one address and ypwhich reporting a
binding to another.

The behavior of the rpc_received() function has been changed to prevent
this: subsequent responses received after a binding has already been
established are ignored. Rebinding gratuitously each time we get a
new response is silly anyway.

Also backed out the non-fix I made in my last ypbind commit. (Pass
me the extra large conical hat, please.)

(At some point I'm going to seriously re-work ypbind and the _yp_dobind()
library function to bring them in line with SunOS's documented behavior:
binding requests are supposed to be 'client-driven.' The _yp_dobind()
function should be responsible for retrying connections in response to
calls from client programs rather than having ypbind broadcasting
continously until a server responds. The current setup works okay in
normal operation, but we broadcast far too often than we should.)

2d9bdef5534f858e9f5c0b38d45d3278cdfc3c2c 16-Feb-1995 wpaul <wpaul@FreeBSD.org> ypbind jumbo patch :)

The existing ypbind exhibits some truly anti-social behavior. After
initially establishing a binding with an NIS server, the following events
take place:

- ypbind waits for 60 seconds before trying to broadcast a ping again
- after the 60 seconds expires, ypbind sends out broadcasts every 5 seconds
come hell or high water.

These broadcasts travel far and wide, even to NIS servers in other domains
which dutifully log the packets even though they don't respond to them.
This leads to lots of unnecessary traffic and bloated log files.

This behavior has been fixed/changed. Here's what happens now:

- We still broadcast every 5 seconds at startup, just like before.

- Once bound, we send out packets once every 60 seconds to the server
we're bound to AND NO ONE ELSE.

- If we fail to receive a reply from our server within FAIL_THRESHOLD
seconds, we assume our server has croaked and go back to broadcasting
everywhere every 5 seconds again until somebody answers. FAIL_THRESHOLD
is currently set to 20 seconds.

Other fixes/improvements:

- ypbind now logs 'server not responding' and 'server OK' messages where
appropriate.
