Fix Linux lldb local and remote debugging to respect the flag to disable ASLR.

Authored by tfiala on Aug 16 2014, 4:25 PM.



This change addresses the following bug:

Ed Maste - please have a look at the (no-op) change to FreeBSD ProcessMonitor. I changed the interface that TOT local Linux and local FreeBSD debugging share in ProcessMonitor to pass in a const ref to the ProcessLaunchInfo structure when we launch a new process for debugging. (I did not build it on FreeBSD - my VM is not reachable on the weekend - but I did tweak the FreeBSD ProcessMonitor to accept the new arg).

I'll do a follow-up patch to add an --enable-aslr flag. Since everything does disable ASLR by default (the flag is always set), I'm not actually finding a way to enable ASLR with the current command setup. (--disable-aslr=False/false/0/no don't work as --disable-aslr isn't expected to take an argument). The net result is instead of always having ASLR stay in the default state, it will now always be disabled on Linux until I make that follow-up change AFAICT.

This change also adds the Plugins/Process/FreeBSD files to the Xcode project.

Looks good to me.


The comment here doesn't make much sense in a file which unconditionally #includes <linux/unistd.h> and <sys/personality.h>. This file can only be compiled on a Linux host or with a Linux SDK kicking around.

I think you can just use the enums from <sys/personality.h>. They aren't weird or surprising even if their documentation is limited.

The defined flags were meant to prevent issues we've hit when
cross-compiling for ARM simulators where the cross-compilers occasionally
are missing some values. But I didn't actually hit that so fair enough, I
can remove it until we know it's an issue.

I just need a buddy build on FreeBSD (or I can watch their buildbot).

Personally, I would just watch the build bots. Their entire purpose is to
expose problems on other hosts.

Looks fine, and now that we have a FreeBSD bot on the official buildmaster it's easy to keep top of the results.


Thanks Todd - I'm playing around with the Xcode build now and just noticed this today.

Ok cool, I'll get this in after removing the dupe of the system flag.

My pleasure, Ed!
