Display the pointer value in the libstdc++ unique_ptr summary

Authored by labath on Nov 8 2016, 9:07 AM.



r284830 added a summary provider for unique_ptr in libstdc++, whose value printed
the value of the pointee. This is a bit unintuitive as it becomes unobvious that
the value actually is a pointer, and we lose the way to actually obtain the
pointer value.

Change that to print the pointer value instead. The pointee value can still be
obtained through the synthetic children.

Make what you will of my suggestion above, but in general the reasoning looks good

This is very nitpick-y but why not

lldb::addr_t ptr_value = m_ptr_obj->GetValueAsUnsigned(LLDB_INVALID_ADDRESS)
switch (ptr_value) {

case 0: stream.Printf("nullptr"); break;
case LLDB_INVALID_ADDRESS: return false;
default: stream.Printf("0x%" PRIx64, ptr_value); break;


modulo clang-formatting the above, of course.

I've changed this to:

uint64_t ptr_value = m_ptr_obj->GetValueAsUnsigned(0, &success);
if (!success)
  return false;
if (ptr_value == 0)
  stream.Printf("0x%" PRIx64, ptr_value);

This should address the issue of not printing a bogus value if we fail to read the value, but avoid the case where the pointer value *is* 0xffff.. (which it can legitimately be, e.g. with custom deleters, or if the inferior corrupts it's memory).
At that point, the switch is not necessary.

Makes sense. Feel free to commit.
