Bug #39367 Entries from the realpath cache should be refreshed after unlink() and rename()

Description:
------------
realpath() on a symlink returns the final file the link 
points to.

Caching symbolic links through the realpath cache can cause 
unexpected behaviors.

Here's a fix against PHP 5.2.0

+               }
        }
 
        if (verify_path && verify_path(state)) {


Reproduce code:
---------------
See bug #36555, or that code :

<?php

@unlink('/tmp/1link');
@unlink('/tmp/1tmp');
@unlink('/tmp/testfile1');

file_put_contents('/tmp/testfile1', '42');
symlink('/tmp/testfile1', '/tmp/1tmp');
rename('/tmp/1tmp', '/tmp/1link');
$a = file_get_contents('/tmp/1link');
var_dump($a);

unlink('/tmp/1link');

clearstatcache();
$a = file_get_contents('/tmp/1link');
var_dump($a);

?>

Expected result:
----------------
The second file_get_contents() should fail because /tmp/1link 
has been unlinked.

But it doesn't.

Actual result:
--------------
42
42

I think the real bug is that unlink(), rename() and rmdir() 
don't refresh the related realpath cache entries.

Here's a patch that fixes this, also available from ftp://
ftp.c9x.org/misc/
php_sync_realpath_cache_with_unlink_and_rename.diff

Another fix is to have clearstatcache() also clear the 
realpath cache.

Patch follows. Also available from ftp://ftp.c9x.org/misc/

The last patch is applied, so you have to use clearstatcache().

rename() and unlink() may rename/unlink directory and it may break several nested entries from realpath cache.

Fixed in CVS HEAD and PHP_5_2.
