[PATCH 0/2] fix fcntl(F_SETFD) usage

From: Eric Blake
Subject: [PATCH 0/2] fix fcntl(F_SETFD) usage
Date: Mon, 20 Apr 2020 12:53:06 -0500

As recently pointed out:
code that blindly calls fcntl(fd, F_SETFD, 1) rather than performing a
read-modify-write when it intends to add FD_CLOEXEC is broken, in that
it can inadvertently clear other bits.

Thankfully, the culprits fixed in this series are unlikely to be
clearing either FD_CLOFORK (if Linux ever follows Solaris' lead in
adding that), or the new FD_32BIT_MODE being proposed (as the fds in
question are unlikely to have that set) - but it is still better to
write proper code than to set up a bad example prone to copy-and-paste
propagation.  And as these usages are not new to 5.0, I don't see any
reason against waiting until 5.1 to apply them.
