I just found out about this after seeing a similar note on the libcurl mailing
list. It sounds like linuxtesting.org
is providing a terrific service, but the
test programs need a bit of help. We'd be happy to provide that help, but
obviously we can't help anyone who doesn't actually talk to us; it was only
pure chance that led me to find these reports.
I see from here
46 tests marked as failed, and 50 warnings. Just looking at the first couple
failures, they're complete misuses of the API.
#1 ber_bvarray_free() SEGVs because BVarrays must be NULL-terminated, and your
test function is just passing in a single BerVal, not a BVarray.
#2 ber_decode_oid() SEGVs because as the comment indicates, the outupt BerVal
must be initialized with both a buffer pointer and the size of that buffer,
and your test function passes an uninit'd BerVal.
#3 ber_memvfree() SEGVs because your vector is allocated on the stack, so
naturally it cannot be freed.
For the warnings
#1 you pass a NULL entry pointer, which is of course invalid. Proper code
would have checked the return value from ldap_result() first, note that it
didn't return any message, and stopped at that point.
#50 of course the result is useless because the input is not a proper
