IV67641: REALLOC() MAY CORRUPT MALLOC META DATA IF DATA ULIMIT IS REACHED
Closed as fixed if next.
Documentation of realloc: "If no memory object can be acquired to accommodate the request, the object remains unchanged." In case "realloc(Pointer, Size)" fails, as the data ulimit is reached (errno ENOMEM) the memory pointed to by "Pointer" gets corrupted and fails to be freed later on.
Make sure the code execution never hits a data memory limit.
Issue with realloc() where it currupts malloc metada if data limit is reached.
This APAR is being closed FIN. This means that a solution to this APAR is expected to be delivered from IBM in a release (if any) to be available within the next 24 months.
