Hi Rich, (This probably should go into 1.0 wishlist thread, but this one freshier) While building a file server/router I found some bugs/incompatibilities in getaddrinfo() and getifaddrs(). getaddrinfo() does not reports IPv6 available when asked with AF_UNSPEC. Thus, servers like openssh or tinc (vpn daemon) still bind only IPv4 socket when they configured to bind IPv4 and IPv6 sockets. getifaddrs() does not returns AF_PACKET like glibc does, so list of all system interfaces is incomplete (does not shows inactive interfaces). I attached patch for getaddrinfo() (adopt it if you need it) and test program. I still have no any clues about getifaddrs(), but that is not critical. It is usually implemented with help of netlink (and possibly there is no other way, maybe some /proc file will give a list) musl-git (from 0.9.10 release). Unfortunately your git interface and website were down at the time this email written and I cannot see any changes in getaddrinfo.c from that version now. I checked https://github.com/idunham/musl/blob/master/src/network/getaddrinfo.c, it seems to be same. If I am missed something, let me know.
