[Msan] Fix the test to pass on FreeBSD

Authored by kutuzov.viktor.84 on May 2 2015, 8:55 AM.



On FreeBSD if_indextoname() leverages strncpy() that unpoisons the whole name buffer, what in turn results in the assertion following the if_indextoname() call to fail:

if (!if_indextoname(1, ifname)) {
assert(strlen(ifname) + 1 == __msan_test_shadow(ifname, sizeof(ifname)));

I don't like it. strncpy zero-initializes this memory whether it's called from inside another interceptor or not.

I'd just change the assert to show that the first strlen()+1 bytes are unpoisoned, without testing the rest of the buffer.

Maybe change the if_indextoname interceptor to poison this area?

Maybe change the if_indextoname interceptor to poison this area?

I would expect all functions handling buffers of specified sizes behave consistently in this regard. I mean, given strncpy() unpoisons its destination buffer all over its size, then probably if_indextoname() should do the same.
