credential-cache: interpret an ECONNRESET as an EOF
Since commit 612c49e94d ("credential-cache: add tests for XDG functionality", 17-03-2017), the cygwin build has been failing all the new tests added by that commit. In particular, the 'git credential-cache exit' command, as part of the test cleanup code, has been die-ing with the message: fatal: read error from cache daemon: Connection reset by peer As this git command is part of an && chain in a 'test_when_finished' call, the remaining test cleanup is not happening, so practically all remaining tests fail due to the unexpected presence of various socket files and directories. A simple means of getting the tests to pass, is to simply ignore the failure of 'git credential-cache exit' command and make sure all test cleanup is done. For example, the diff for test #12 would look like: diff --git a/t/ b/t/ index fd92533ac..87e5001bb 100755 --- a/t/ +++ b/t/ @@ -17,7 +17,7 @@ helper_test cache test_expect_success 'socket defaults to ~/.cache/git/credential/socket' ' test_when_finished " - git credential-cache exit && + (git credential-cache exit || :) && rmdir -p .cache/git/credential/ " && test_path_is_missing "$HOME/.git-credential-cache" && ... and so on for all remaining tests. While this does indeed make all tests pass, it is not really a solution. As an aside, while looking to debug this issue, I added the '--debug' option to the invocation of the 'git-credential-cache--daemon' child process (see the spawn_daemon() function). This not only fixed the tests, but also stopped git-credential-cache exiting with a failure. Since the only effect of passing '--debug' was to suppress the redirection of stderr to the bit-bucket (/dev/null), I have no idea why this seems to fix the protocol interaction between git and git-credential-cache--daemon. (I did think that maybe it was a timing issue, so I tried sleeping before reading from the daemon on Linux, but that only slowed down the tests!) All descriptions of the "Connection reset by peer" error, that I could find, say that the peer had destroyed the connection before the client attempted to perform I/O on the connection. Since the daemon does not respond to an "exit" message from the client, it just closes the socket and deletes the socket file (via the atexit handler), it seems that the expected result is for the client to receive an EOF. Indeed, this is exactly what seems to be happening on Linux. Also a comment in credential-cache--daemon.c reads: else if (!strcmp(action.buf, "exit")) { /* * It's important that we clean up our socket first, and then * signal the client only once we have finished the cleanup. * Calling exit() directly does this, because we clean up in * our atexit() handler, and then signal the client when our * process actually ends, which closes the socket and gives * them EOF. */ exit(0); } On cygwin this is not the case, at least when not passing --debug to the daemon, and the read following the "exit" gets an error with errno set to ECONNRESET. In order to suppress the fatal exit in this case, check the read error for an ECONNRESET and return as if no data was read from the daemon. This effectively converts an ECONNRESET into an EOF.
