            Bug ID: 258188
           Summary: ENCIO_GETSTRING does not set the string's returned
                    size
           Product: Base System
           Version: CURRENT
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Only Me
          Priority: ---
         Component: kern
          Assignee: bugs_at_FreeBSD.org
          Reporter: asomers_at_FreeBSD.org

According to the comments in the header, the ENCIOC_GETSTRING ioctl has a
IN/OUT bufsiz field.  However, it does not set that field on return, leaving
the caller unsure of how many bytes were actually transferred. That pretty much
makes the ioctl useless.
