Disable unsigned integer sanitizer for basic_string::replace()

Authored by tomcherry on Mar 8 2017, 3:37 PM.



basic_string::replace() has the below line

sz += n2 - __n1;

which fails overflow checks if n1 > n2, as the negative result
from the subtraction then overflows the original __sz when added to

This behavior is valid as unsigned integer overflow is defined to wrap
around the maximum value and that produces the correct final value for
__sz. Therefore, we disable this check on this function.

You probably want to remove the Change-Id section above in your description (or at least drop that when you finally submit this to libc++).

Please put this comment inside one of the function bodies, right above the offending line.

I think putting it here will result in it maybe becoming unmaintained.

Side note: There are plenty of tests in the test-suite that trigger this overflow, so no new tests are needed.

When I have time I'm going to enable -fsanitize=unsigned-integer-overflow once I have time to clean up any existing failures.
