[PATCH 2/2] Define ENONAMESERVICE and ENAMEUNKNOWN to indicate name service errors

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Now that the kernel has filesystems (and possibly other services) that want to
look up internet addresses corresponding to arbitrary hostnames retrieved from
the server, it would seem useful to provide a couple of error codes to indicate
problems with the look up, rather than overloading some other error code.

Define ENONAMESERVICE to indicate "Network name service unavailable".  This can
be used to indicate, for example, that an attempt was made by dns_query() to
make a query, but the name server (e.g. a DNS server) it is supposed to contact
didn't answer or that it couldn't determine the location of a suitable server.

Define ENAMEUNKNOWN to indicate "Network name unknown".  This can be used to
indicate, for example, that an attempt was made by dns_query() to make a query,
but the name server (e.g. a DNS server) replied indicating that it had no
matching records.

The DNS query upcall program can report these to keyctl_reject() so that cached
failed queries will respond with these errors until they expire.
