#9770 closed bug (fixed)

if_nameindex() returns multiple elements with same if_index

I found that if_nameindex() returns multile elements with same if_index.

~/n> uname -srvm
Haiku 1 hrevr1alpha4-44702 Nov 14 2012  BePC
~/n> cat tst.c
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <net/if.h>

int main(int argc, char *argv[])
  struct if_nameindex *ifs;
  int i;

  ifs = if_nameindex();
  if (ifs == NULL) { perror("if_nameindex"); exit(EXIT_FAILURE); }

  for (i = 0; ifs[i].if_index != 0 || ifs[i].if_name != NULL; i++) {
    printf("%d %s\n", ifs[i].if_index, ifs[i].if_name);
  return EXIT_SUCCESS;
~/n> gcc tst.c -lnetwork
~/n> ./a.out
288 loop
288 /dev/net/rtl81xx/0

I think 288 is not a valid if_index.

I will look into, at it seems indeed a bug.

Issue is that it's assumed that SIOCGIFCONF returns a list of ifreq of ifr_name + ifr_index flavor:

While in fact it's ifr_name + ifr_addr flavor:

Will do a SIOCGIFINDEX request to retrieve that interface name's index. Stay tuned.

Oh, for the curious ones: 288 is 0x0120, which match "AF_INET" address family and a "32 bytes sockaddr lenght".
