[PATCH][VFS] Ignore broken symlinks in the directory iterator.

Authored by ributzka on Mar 8 2017, 5:17 PM.



The VFS directory iterator and recursive directory iterator behave differently
from the LLVM counterparts. Once the VFS iterators hit a broken symlink they
immediately abort. The LLVM counterparts allow to recover from this issue by
clearing the error code and skipping to the next entry.

This change adds the same functionality to the VFS iterators. There should be
no change in current behavior in the current CLANG source base, because all
clients have loop exit conditions that also check the error code.

Hi Juergen,

Thanks for working on this.

I would rather we don't drop checks for ECs - it's commonly assumed that whenever they are passed in we wanna check them for errors, can't you just skip the specific case you want to avoid?

Same here.

Can you add a comment explaining why you are doing it? I would prefer if we reset the EC state here than having the callers ignoring EC results.

If we reset the EC here, then the caller won't know that there was an issue. The idea is that we still want the caller to check EC. It should be up to the caller to decide how to act on this particular error.

I guess since the caller has to check for the error anyway I could even remove this check completely and not check EC at all here.

EC is an output parameter here. The client is supposed to check it.

Remove the EC check completely.

Right, this should be fine with the latest changes and per discussions offline. LGTM
