Why not :-)

davem@sunset:~$ dpkg-query -W | grep libc6-sparc64
libc6-sparc64 2.10.2-2
davem@sunset:~$ cat fstat_test.c
#include <sys/stat.h>
#include <fcntl.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

int main(void)
{
struct stat sb;
int fd = open("foo", O_RDWR | O_CREAT, 0666);

if (fd < 0)
abort();
if (fstat(fd, &sb) < 0)
abort();
printf("%lu.%lu\n", sb.st_mtim.tv_sec, sb.st_mtim.tv_nsec);
if (stat("foo", &sb) < 0)
abort();
printf("%lu.%lu\n", sb.st_mtim.tv_sec, sb.st_mtim.tv_nsec);
if (fstatat(AT_FDCWD, "foo", &sb, 0) < 0)
abort();
printf("%lu.%lu\n", sb.st_mtim.tv_sec, sb.st_mtim.tv_nsec);
return 0;
}
davem@sunset:~$ gcc -m64 -o fstat_test fstat_test.c
davem@sunset:~$ ./fstat_test
1261510364.0
1261510364.0
1261510364.0
davem@sunset:~$

But, indeed when I run it under strace64 it goes:

open("foo", O_RDWR|O_CREAT, 0666) = 3
fstat(3, {st_mode=S_IFREG|0644, st_size=0, ...}) = 0
fstat(1, {st_mode=S_IFCHR|0620, st_rdev=makedev(136, 2), ...}) = 0

I wonder why I get a sane output from the test program even though
it's not using fstat64.

Thanks a lot!

Please submit this to the glibc/eglibc folks for inclusion!
