Inspired by Coverity perl5 CID 28931: Insecure chroot: (CHROOT)

The Perl chroot() is a thin wrapper around the system call, so the
chdir("/") should not go there.  But adding a note about the chdir()
being a good idea to perlfunc/chroot.

David Mitchell [Tue, 13 May 2014 13:18:06 +0000]
[perl #121854] use re 'taint' regression

Commit v5.19.8-533-g63baef5 changed the handling of locale-dependent
regexes so that the pattern was considered tainted at compile-time, rather
than determining it each time at run-time whenever it executed a
locale-dependent node. Unfortunately due to the conflating of two flags,
RXf_TAINTED and RXf_TAINTED_SEEN, it had the side effect of permanently
marking a pattern as tainted once it had had a single tainted result.


    use re qw(taint);
    use Scalar::Util qw(tainted);
    for ($^X, "abc") {
        /(.*)/ or die;
        print "not " unless tainted("$1"); print "tainted\n";

which from 5.19.9 onwards output:


but with this commit (and with 5.19.8 and earlier), it now outputs:

    not tainted

The RXf_TAINTED flag indicates that the pattern itself is tainted, e.g.

    $r = qr/$tainted_value/

while the RXf_TAINTED_SEEN flag means that the results of the last match
are tainted, e.g.

    use re 'tainted';
    $tainted =~ /(.*)/;
    # $1 is tainted

Pre 63baef5, the code used to look like:

    at run-time:

        turn off RXf_TAINTED_SEEN;
        while (nodes to execute) {
            switch(node) {
                BOUNDL: /* and other locale-specific ops */
                    turn on RXf_TAINTED_SEEN;
        if (tainted || RXf_TAINTED)
            turn on RXf_TAINTED_SEEN;

63baef5 changed it to:

    at compile-time:

        if (pattern has locale ops)
            turn on RXf_TAINTED_SEEN;

    at run-time:

        while (nodes to execute) {
        if (tainted || RXf_TAINTED)
            turn on RXf_TAINTED_SEEN;

This commit changes it to:

    at compile-time;

        if (pattern has locale ops)
            turn on RXf_TAINTED;

    at run-time:

        turn off RXf_TAINTED_SEEN;
        while (nodes to execute) {

Revert "[perl #79908] Stop sub inlining from breaking closures"

This reverts commit 137da2b05b4b7628115049f343163bdaf2c30dbb. See the
"How about having a recommended way to add constant subs dynamically?"
thread on perl5-porters, specifically while it sucks that we have this
bug, it's been documented to work this way since 5.003 in "Constant
Functions" in perlsub:

    If the result after optimization and constant folding is either a
    constant or a lexically-scoped scalar which has no other references,
    then it will be used in place of function calls made without C<&>

    -- http://perldoc.perl.org/perlsub.html#Constant-Functions

Since we've had this documented bug for a long time we should introduce
this fix in a deprecation cycle rather than silently slowing down code
that assumes it's going to be optimized by constant folding.

       From:  Tom Phoenix <rootbeer@teleport.com>

       Date:  Mon, 31 Mar 1997 13:05:54 -0800 (PST)
      Files:  pod/perlsub.pod

We've documented that "BEGIN { my $x = 1; *X = sub () { $x } }" creates
an inlined subroutine, we just weren't doing so very explicitly. Patch
the documentation so that we now have explicit examples for the behavior
mentioned in the first paragraph of the section.

This also adds an explicit mention of the behavior reported as a bug in
[RT #79908], shows the user that you can just use B::Deparse rather than
relying on a warning to see the effects of inlining, and replaces a
contrived way to avoid inlining with just adding a "return".

While writing these docs I found a bug in the warning behavior mentioned
here, which I filed as [RT #121841]
