+Subject: [PATCH] dbus-marshal-byteswap: Byte-swap Unix fd indexes if needed
+When a D-Bus message includes attached file descriptors, the body of the
+message contains unsigned 32-bit indexes pointing into an out-of-band
+array of file descriptors. Some D-Bus APIs like GLib's GDBus refer to
+these indexes as "handles" for the associated fds (not to be confused
+with a Windows HANDLE, which is a kernel object).
+The assertion message removed by this commit is arguably correct up to
+a point: fd-passing is only reasonable on a local machine, and no known
+operating system allows processes of differing endianness even on a
+multi-endian ARM or PowerPC CPU, so it makes little sense for the sender
+to specify a byte-order that differs from the byte-order of the recipient.
+However, this doesn't account for the fact that a malicious sender
+doesn't have to restrict itself to only doing things that make sense.
+On a system with untrusted local users, a message sender could crash
+the system dbus-daemon (a denial of service) by sending a message in
+the opposite endianness that contains handles to file descriptors.
+Before this commit, if assertions are enabled, attempting to byteswap
+a fd index would cleanly crash the message recipient with an assertion
+failure. If assertions are disabled, attempting to byteswap a fd index
+would silently do nothing without advancing the pointer p, causing the
+message's type and the pointer into its contents to go out of sync, which
+can result in a subsequent crash (the crash demonstrated by fuzzing was
+a use-after-free, but other failure modes might be possible).
+In principle we could resolve this by rejecting wrong-endianness messages
+from a local sender, but it's actually simpler and less code to treat
+wrong-endianness messages as valid and byteswap them.
