Bug#810679: [PATCH] IPv6 broken due with exosip 4

Package: linphone
Version: 3.6.1-2.4
Severity: normal
Tags: ipv6 patch

exosip 4 deprecated eXosip_enable_ipv6() in such a way that it fails
silently: https://sources.debian.net/src/libexosip2/4.1.0-2/src/eXconf.c/#L55

As a consequence, when enabling IPv6 in linphone, it tries to bind to an
IPv6 address (“::0”) while specifying IPv4 as address family, which

We need to switch to eXosip_set_option:

  eXosip_set_option(ctx->excontext, EXOSIP_OPT_ENABLE_IPV6, &ipv6);

I’ve attached a patch which updates debian/patches/port-to-exosip-4.patch
Unfortunately, it seems I’m using a different quilt version than you
are, so quilt touched all hunks, making the patch bigger than it needs
to be. The important hunk of my patch is:

@@ -704,7 +722,14 @@
-@@ -429,7 +482,11 @@ int sal_listen_port(Sal *ctx, const char
+ 	ipv6=strchr(addr,':')!=NULL;
++	eXosip_set_option(ctx->excontext, EXOSIP_OPT_ENABLE_IPV6, &ipv6);
+ 	eXosip_enable_ipv6(ipv6);
+ 	if (is_secure && tr == SalTransportUDP){
  		ms_fatal("SIP over DTLS is not supported yet.");
  		return -1;

Feel free to re-do my patch if that makes merging easier.

Thanks for your work on linphone!
