While I was working on kern/113218, I realized it is a bigger problem
than I originally thought:
Because fixing this PR breaks ABI, I had to make compat shims. But
the question is which branch to break? Since we are very close to
7.0-RELEASE, the question became more complicated. A lot of people
are asking me to fix this PR because it is much needed fix for large
database installations, so I have to make a quick decision. :-(
I think I have four options (with corresponding patches):
- Option 1: HEAD.
- Option 2: HEAD and RELENG_7.
- Option 3: HEAD, RELENG_7, and RELENG_7_0.
- Option 4: Don't do anything ATM. Break it with ipc_perm later.
FYI, fixing ipc_perm is a lot more complicated and very intrusive.
What do I do now? Do I have any other options?
