Subject: Re: util-linux-2.23 mount segmentation fault error

could you send me the patch? i will test it.

BTW, in latest musl-git version, i found something wrong with ioctl.h

#if 1
#define _IO(a,b) _IOC(0U,(a),(b),0)                 //?
#define _IOW(a,b,c) _IOC(1U,(a),(b),sizeof(c)) //?
#define _IO(a,b) _IOC(0,(a),(b),0)                   //ok
#define _IOW(a,b,c) _IOC(1,(a),(b),sizeof(c))   //ok

#define _IOR(a,b,c) _IOC(2U,(a),(b),sizeof(c))  //ok
#define _IOW(a,b,c) _IOC(3U,(a),(b),sizeof(c)) //ok

if i set 0, it works fine run as "./mount", but set 1 then,

# ./mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
EXT4-fs (sda1): mounted filesystem with ordered data mode. Opts: (null)

< 30 - 40  seconds waiting without return to shell>

mount: /mnt: filesystem mounted, but mount(8) failedOperation timed out
// <-- this is weird.
