Sock­ets and nullfs: works now in –current

I just updated to a recent -cur­rent and tried the new nullfs. Sock­ets (e.g. the MySQL one) work now with nullfs. No need to have e.g. jails on the same FS and hardlink the socket to not need to use TCP in MySQL (or an IP at all for the jail).

Great work!

Hint: using sock­ets across jails

I want to use a socket (mysql) in mul­ti­ple jails. Using nullfs to mount it in each jail where you want to use it does not work (bug in nullfs?). Using a hardlink (if the jails reside on the same FS) works. I hope this info safes a lit­tle bit of time in case some­one tries to do the same.

The host­name MySQL sees in such a con­nec­tion is “local­host”. Maybe this is obvi­ous to one or another, but because jails don’t have a 127.0.0.1 it was not obvi­ous to me.
