#11302 closed defect (fixed)

connection_handle_write_impl() should handle orconns properly if getsockopt() fails

The function connection_handle_write_impl() in connection.c contains this code:

/* Sometimes, "writable" means "connected". */
if (connection_state_is_connecting(conn)) {
  if (getsockopt(conn->s, SOL_SOCKET, SO_ERROR, (void*)&e, &len) < 0) {
    log_warn(LD_BUG, "getsockopt() syscall failed");
    if (CONN_IS_EDGE(conn))
    return -1;

This might close an orconn out from under the channel layer improperly. It should test for orconns and call connection_or_connect_failed() in that case rather than connection_mark_for_close() directly. Created pursuant to connection_mark_for_close() audit task #7472.

Proposed fix in my bug11302 branch; it doesn't appear to break anything, but since this is in an apparent can't-happen case I can't confirm that it fixes anything in testing.

Sure, this seems correct. Merging to 0.2.6
