Hmm, it seems that uid wrapper is indeed rather different to how
socket_wrapper (which I'm more familiar with) and nss_wrapper is
handled. In these, we never include system headers directly, and always
include via system/passwd.h and system/network.h. This ensures that we
always get the wrappers.
In Samba4 it seems that uid handling has been so condensed that
uid_wrapper has only been included in a particular spots, and so I now
see why it hasn't been in a system/ header in the past.
The fact that the uid functions are in a very base system header
(unistd.h) does make this more challenging, but I think we have a very
good understanding of the 'right' way to do this. I think we should
require that unistd.h is included via a system header, and put uid
wrapper hooks in each of those headers:
Outside self-contained tests, very few parts of Samba include unistd.h
directly, so this should not be too hard.
(Or bring the uid handling back into a small, isolated area of code, but
this seems more difficult and less reliable).
