Subject: [musl] [PATCH] select: fix 64-bit timeout truncation on pre-time64 kernels
Date: Thu,  2 Mar 2023 08:10:47 +0300	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

If the (normalized) timeout passed to select exceeds INT_MAX seconds on
an arch with SYS_pselect6_time64 and the kernel is too old to support
time64 syscalls, the timeout is implicitly converted to (32-bit) long on
the fallback path, losing its upper 32 bits and potentially becoming a
small positive value, violating the intended semantics, or even
a negative value, causing the fallback syscall failure. Fix this by
saturating the timeout at INT_MAX as done in other time64 fallback
