Subject: Re: [net] tipc: fix wrong connect() return code

From: Tuong Lien <>
Date: Wed,  8 Jan 2020 09:19:00 +0700

> The current 'tipc_wait_for_connect()' function does a wait-loop for the
> condition 'sk->sk_state != TIPC_CONNECTING' to conclude if the socket
> connecting has done. However, when the condition is met, it returns '0'
> even in the case the connecting is actually failed, the socket state is
> set to 'TIPC_DISCONNECTING' (e.g. when the server socket has closed..).
> This results in a wrong return code for the 'connect()' call from user,
> making it believe that the connection is established and go ahead with
> building, sending a message, etc. but finally failed e.g. '-EPIPE'.
> This commit fixes the issue by changing the wait condition to the
> 'tipc_sk_connected(sk)', so the function will return '0' only when the
> connection is really established. Otherwise, either the socket 'sk_err'
> if any or '-ETIMEDOUT'/'-EINTR' will be returned correspondingly.
