Help me out here... I don't follow your comments.

what is the connection between "unix MPM" and this code?  Do you mean
"unix build of APR?"

What does "munging system symbols" mean?

apr_get/set_netos_error() is not sufficient.  For Unix that needs to deal
with errno.  This is h_errno.

can't do because of the errno/h_errno issue...


Note that this path is only used on systems with getnameinfo() and IPv6
support.  The h_errno kludge helps out with some getnameinfo() issues
on common versions of glibc.  Before we truly clean up this code we
need to understand what is needed to operate with getnameinfo() across
a variety of systems.  Hopefully the h_errno stuff can then be hidden
inside ifdef GETNAMEINFO_SETS_H_ERRNO and any non-Unix platforms which
later add getnameinfo() support won't be hurt by the kludge since it
won't be set.
