so_reuseport_lb_test: Changing the variable type of the optval parameter of the setsockopt function

Authored by on Mon, Mar 23, 1:23 PM.



The so_reuseport_lb_test fails (bind () failed: Address already in use) on PowerPC64.

Changing the type of variable (size_t -> unsigned int) that will be passed as a parameter for setsockopt the test behaves correctly.

Test Plan

kyua test -k /usr/tests/sys/netinet/Kyuafile so_reuseport_lb_test

Sorry, why unsigned ?
setsockopt(2) indirectly suggests that in should be plain int: Most socket-level options utilize an int argument for optval.

Yes, I read this on the manpage... but I thought of changing the type to the most corresponding one possible, according to the unix specifications size_t is an unsigned integral type.

Kernel reads the value as int, which is consistent with the manpage.

Would it be possible to reflect it here?

Following @melifaro `s recommendations, type of variable changed to int, instead of unsigned int.
