[ThinLTO] Copy UnnamedAddr when spliting module.

Authored by zequanwu on Apr 14 2021, 11:27 AM.



The unnamedaddr property of a function is lost when using
-fwhole-program-vtables and thinlto which causes size increase under linker's
safe icf mode.

Chrome built with safe-icf on Linux and Windows reduced 2Mb binary size after
this change.

There is a repro:

# a.h
struct A {
  virtual int f();
  virtual int g();

# a.cpp
#include "a.h"
int A::f() { return 10; }
int A::g() { return 10; }

# main.cpp
#include "a.h"

int g(A* a) {
  return a->f();

int main(int argv, char** args) {
  A a;
  return g(&a);

$ clang++ -O2 -ffunction-sections -flto=thin -fwhole-program-vtables -fsplit-lto-unit -c main.cpp -o main.o  && clang++ -O2 -ffunction-sections -flto=thin -fwhole-program-vtables -fsplit-lto-unit -c a.cpp -o a.o && clang++ -Wl,--icf=safe -fuse-ld=lld  -flto=thin a.o main.o -o a.out && llvm-readobj -t a.out | grep -A 1 -e _ZN1A1fEv -e _ZN1A1gEv
    Name: _ZN1A1fEv (480)
    Value: 0x201830
    Name: _ZN1A1gEv (490)
    Value: 0x201840

Please add a test.

I know you said that copyAttributesFrom crashes, but there are many other attributes to consider:

void GlobalValue::copyAttributesFrom(const GlobalValue *Src) {
void GlobalObject::copyAttributesFrom(const GlobalObject *Src) {

Some of these, like DSO local or the alignment, might be worth copying. I think I would prefer to figure out which of these attributes is causing the crash, to clear that attribute from F (we are about to erase F), and then to copy the rest of the attributes. I suspect there is some assertion about function attributes that cannot be applied to a declaration, or that the function has argument attributes for parameters that are not part of the void prototype. If it ends up being the AttributeList that causes the crash, you can clear them all or copy them more selectively.

  • Copy function attributes and remove ret/param attributes.
  • Add a test case.

Looks good with a minor simplification


Instead of iterating over return and parameter attributes, I suggest you build a new AttributeList that consists of nothing but function attributes. This code might work, but I haven't actually compiled it:

NewF->setAttributes(AttributeList::get(M.getContext(), {AttributeList::FunctionIndex, F.getAttributes().getFnAttributes()}));

This has a nice side effect of not leaking lots of temporary AttributeList objects.
