Re: [PATCH v4] Make bindresvport() function to multithread-safe
I appreciate your fastidiousness, but frankly this is a ridiculous amount
of effort to expend on an obscure and little-used function that we would
never even consider adding to the libc ABI today if it hadn't been there
from the beginning, and that we've already concluded there is no actual
mandate to make thread-safe to begin with. We're all volunteers and each
of us spends his time how he likes, but if your interest is in improving
the C library technically or serving its developer community or user
community effectively, this is near the bottom of the list of priorities.
