Re: [libvirt] [PATCH v3] Loop through all resolved addresses in virNetSocketNewListenTCP

On Mon, Jun 04, 2018 at 12:29:37PM +0200, Olaf Hering wrote:
Currently virNetSocketNewListenTCP bails out early under the following
- the hostname resolves to at least one IPv4 and at least one IPv6
- the local interfaces have that one IPv4 address assigned, but not any
 of the IPv6 addresses
- the local interfaces have just IPv6 link-local addresses

In this case the resolver returns not only the IPv4 addresses but also
IPv6. Binding the IPv6 address will obviously fail. But this terminates
the entire loop, even if binding to IPv4 succeeded.

To fix this error, just keep going and loop through all returned
addresses. In case none of the attempts to bind to some address
succeeded, try to report some appropriate error.

This skips all errors, not just EADDRNOTAVAIL. Saving the errno here...

...and using it here if needed would feel less random than picking one
at random.

Also, why the use of global errno variable to pass a value within a
single block?
