[Bug nscd/16758] nscd incorrectly returns failure for innetgr for netgroup entries with wildcards in them

    Avoid overlapping addresses to stpcpy calls in nscd (BZ #16760)

    Calls to stpcpy from nscd netgroups code will have overlapping source
    and destination when all three values in the returned triplet are
    non-NULL and in the expected (host,user,domain) order.  This is seen
    in valgrind as:

    ==3181== Source and destination overlap in stpcpy(0x19973b48, 0x19973b48)
    ==3181==    at 0x4C2F30A: stpcpy (in
    ==3181==    by 0x12567A: addgetnetgrentX (string3.h:111)
    ==3181==    by 0x12722D: addgetnetgrent (netgroupcache.c:665)
    ==3181==    by 0x11114C: nscd_run_worker (connections.c:1338)
    ==3181==    by 0x4E3C102: start_thread (pthread_create.c:309)
    ==3181==    by 0x59B81AC: clone (clone.S:111)

    Fix this by using memmove instead of stpcpy.

    Return NULL for wildcard values in getnetgrent from nscd (BZ #16759)

    getnetgrent is supposed to return NULL for values that are wildcards
    in the (host, user, domain) triplet.  This works correctly with nscd
    disabled, but with it enabled, it returns a blank ("") instead of a
    NULL.  This is easily seen with the output of `getent netgroup foonet`
    for a netgroup foonet defined as follows in /etc/netgroup:

        foonet (,foo,)

    The output with nscd disabled is:

        foonet ( ,foo,)

    while with nscd enabled, it is:

        foonet (,foo,)

    The extra space with nscd disabled is due to the fact that `getent
    netgroup` adds it if the return value from getnetgrent is NULL for
    either host or user.

    (cherry picked from commit dd3022d75e6fb8957843d6d84257a5d8457822d5);h=2f3bd411aefa9747f17740e9ab06676d51241098

    Fix nscd lookup for innetgr when netgroup has wildcards (BZ #16758)

    nscd works correctly when the request in innetgr is a wildcard,
    i.e. when one or more of host, user or domain parameters is NULL.
    However, it does not work when the the triplet in the netgroup
    definition has a wildcard.  This is easy to reproduce for a triplet
    defined as follows:

        foonet (,foo,)

    Here, an innetgr call that looks like this:

        innetgr ("foonet", "foohost", "foo", NULL);

    should succeed and so should:

        innetgr ("foonet", NULL, "foo", "foodomain");

    It does succeed with nscd disabled, but not with nscd enabled.  This
    fix adds this additional check for all three parts of the triplet so
    that it gives the correct result.

        [BZ #16758]
        * nscd/netgroupcache.c (addinnetgrX): Succeed if triplet has
        blank values.

    (cherry picked from commit fbd6b5a4052316f7eb03c4617eebfaafc59dcc06)
