critical impact:

ucontext_t - incompatible data types (CrCh212)

KN Impacts

Problem description

The ucontext_t data type used by the makecontext, setcontext, and getcontext functions on Tru64 UNIX is incompatible with the data type on HP-UX.

This data type is machine dependent, and is different on Tru64 UNIX and HP-UX.

Solution description

Review the applicable manpages and code.

If the application that calls the APIs does not reference any member of ucontext_t, the data type difference is transparent to the application. In this case, no code change is needed, and the APIs can be regarded as compatible.
