Merge branch 'maint-0.3.5' into maint-0.4.0

parents 8a4635a5 5df0b366
o Minor bugfixes (portability):
- Avoid crashing in our tor_vasprintf() implementation on systems that
define neither vasprintf() nor _vscprintf(). (This bug has been here
long enough that we question whether people are running Tor on such
systems, but we're applying the fix out of caution.) Fixes bug 30561;
bugfix on Found and fixed by Tobias Stoeckmann.
......@@ -131,14 +131,24 @@ tor_vasprintf(char **strp, const char *fmt, va_list args)
* characters we need. We give it a try on a short buffer first, since
* it might be nice to avoid the second vsnprintf call.
/* XXXX This code spent a number of years broken (see bug 30651). It is
* possible that no Tor users actually run on systems without vasprintf() or
* _vscprintf(). If so, we should consider removing this code. */
