           Summary: superfluous descriptor duplications in sftp-server
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: 5.2p1
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Solaris
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: sftp-server
        AssignedTo: unassigned-bugs at mindrot.org
        ReportedBy: Jan.Pechanec at Sun.COM

suggested patch

pfiles on running sftp-server shows:

   3: S_IFIFO mode:0000 dev:329,0 ino:91352 uid:0 gid:0 size:0
   4: S_IFIFO mode:0000 dev:329,0 ino:91353 uid:0 gid:0 size:0

those descriptors are created by 2 dup() calls on STD(IN|OUT)_FILENO.
However, there is no need for that and sftp-server can work directly
with 0 and 1. I see that this code came with the 1st sftp-server
implementation in version 2.3.0p1 and hasn't change since then. Even
the Cygwin code that follows those dup()'s and which looks like it
might need those came long after that. After the attached patch was
applied, the full output of pfiles follows and there is no regression.

   0: S_IFIFO mode:0000 dev:340,0 ino:1570 uid:0 gid:0 size:0
   1: S_IFIFO mode:0000 dev:340,0 ino:1571 uid:0 gid:0 size:0
   2: S_IFIFO mode:0000 dev:340,0 ino:1572 uid:0 gid:0 size:0

the "make tests" passed all tests.
