_SC_PAGESIZE is defined but sysconf returns -1

With the port of ACE/TAO/CIAO we found a problem with _SC_PAGESIZE. The memory pools in ACE use the pagesize as allocation granularity. When _SC_PAGESIZE is defined we use sysconf to retrieve the actual pagesize. We now found that calling ::sysconf (_SC_PAGESIZE) returns -1 instead of a valid pagesize, the oroginal ACE code is below. I do see two solutions, implement _SC_PAGESIZE to return a correct value or remove the _SC_PAGESIZE define

ACE_OS::getpagesize (void)

ACE_OS_TRACE ("ACE_OS::getpagesize");

#if defined (ACE_WIN32) && !defined (ACE_HAS_PHARLAP)

SYSTEM_INFO sys_info;
::GetSystemInfo? (&sys_info);
return (long) sys_info.dwPageSize;

#elif defined (_SC_PAGESIZE)

return ::sysconf (_SC_PAGESIZE);

#elif defined (ACE_HAS_GETPAGESIZE)

return ::getpagesize ();


Use the default set in config.h

#endif /* ACE_WIN32 */

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed
Version: 4.64.7

Should be fixed by now in rtems-4-7-branch and cvs-HEAD.

I changed the code to let sysconf(_SC_PAGESIZE) return PAGE_SIZE.

WONTFIX for rtems-4.6
