Avoid an assertion failure when a bit field is extracted from a value of the same size.

Authored by bryanpkc on May 18 2016, 2:17 AM.



One of the cases handled by ValueObjectChild::UpdateValue() uses the entire width of the parent's scalar value as the size of the child, and extracts the child by calling Scalar::ExtractBitfield(). This seems valid but APInt::trunc(), APInt::sext() and APInt::zext() assert that the bit field must not have the same size as the parent scalar. Replacing those calls with sextOrTrunc(), zextOrTrunc(), sextOrSelf() and zextOrSelf() fixes the assertion failures.

This fixes the same issue as D19535, which is stalled at the moment waiting for a unit test. You can take over if you write a quick unit test for this (unittests/Core/ScalarTest.cpp). Thanks.

Added a unit test in ScalarTest.cpp that catches this particular error.

Looks good. Thank you for taking the time to add the tests. Please consider the comment below though.

Do you have commit access?


Is there a reason this couldn't be written as ASSERT_EQ(a1, s_scalar.SLongLong()) ?
If there isn't one, I think this would make the check more readable.

Yes I do. Thanks for your review!


SLongLong() invokes sextOrTrunc() and getSExtValue(), potentially further changing the contents of the underlying m_integer. I felt that checking with memcmp() immediately after ExtractBitfield() is a more fool-proof way to confirm the behaviour of ExtractBitfield(). There are precedents for using memcmp() in the file, and it is not that much more unreadable.

Ok, I'll leave that up to you.
