Yeah, the existing code is correct _only_ if the pattern part can
match an empty string (e.g. "three/a.3*") and this is a correct fix.
With your "teach attr.c match the same optimization as dir.c"
series, you would need something like this
diff --git i/attr.c w/attr.c
index 6d39406..528e935 100644
@@ -710,7 +710,7 @@ static int path_matches(const char *pathname, int pathlen,
* if the non-wildcard part is longer than the remaining
* pathname, surely it cannot match.
- if (!namelen || prefix > namelen)
+ if (prefix > namelen)
if (baselen != 0)
Comparing the corresponding code in dir.c, there is no "compare the
literal prefix part with strcmp() before doing the fnmatch()"
(warning: I haven't had my caffeine yet)
