Bug #52636 php_mysql_fetch_hash writes long value into int
Submitted: 2010-08-18 16:35 UTC Modified: 2010-08-18 22:02 UTC
From: rein at basefarm dot no Assigned: kalle (profile)
Status: Closed Package: MySQL related
PHP Version: 5.3.3 OS: Solaris10 on sparc
Private report: No CVE-ID: None

In php_mysql_fetch_hash(), zend_parse_parameters() is passed &result_type, an int variable, which it is instructed to write a long value into.  On a big-endian system like the sparc it writes outside the memory location of result_type.

The mysql_fetch_array tests in:


fails on Solaris sparc systems without this patch, it always behaves as if the one-argument version of mysql_fetch_array is called.

This bug may be causing the problem reported in bug#51601.

Hi, wouldn't it be easier if we just changed the result_type to be a long in the prototype?

Yes, probably, thought about that I too.  I discarded it as I just don´t like to change argument types unless I´m absolutely sure it doesn´t have any unforseen side-effects.  And I don´t consider my limited knowledge of php internals to be good enough for that.  Though, being a static function it should be pretty safe here..
 [2010-08-18 21:06 UTC]
Just my thought, could try try it out if it works, if not then I guess we need to suffix the MYSQL_FETCH defines with L to make them a long.

Either way, reply back with your results and ill commit the fix tonight, thanks :)

Using the prototype change, all mysql tests succeed for me on solaris10/sparc, solaris10/x86_64 and redhat4/x86_64 :-)  So from my point of view it is go ahead with the prototype variant.
