Track skipped files in dependency scanning

Authored by vsapsai on Mar 13 2017, 12:10 AM.



It's possible for a header to be a symlink to another header. In this
case both will be represented by clang::FileEntry with the same UID and
they'll use the same clang::HeaderFileInfo.

If you include both headers and use some single-inclusion mechanism
like a header guard or #import, one header will get a FileChanged
callback, and another FileSkipped.

So that we get an accurate dependency file, we therefore need to also
implement the FileSkipped callback in dependency scanning.

Hi Pete,

191 ↗(On Diff #91518)

Is there any FileSkipped callback invocation that might trigger an unwanted file to be added as a dependency or it will only trigger for the symlink case?

It seems that it works for hard links as well right? Is this intended or do you miss a -s?

I plan to look into cleaning this up and addressing the review comments.

Need to check if DepCollectorPPCallbacks has to be updated too.

I suspect we need to call FileMatchesDepCriteria here too.

FileSkipped is called when a file has a mechanism for single inclusion (header guards or #import) and it was already included. The callback will be triggered also for

// a.h
#ifndef A_H_
#define A_H_
#include "b.h"

// b.h
#ifndef B_H_
#define B_H_

// test.c
#include "a.h"
#include "b.h"

But AddFilename performs Filename uniqueness check, so there will be no duplicate b.h in dependencies.

If the same file is included by multiple paths, all paths can end up in dependency file. It is actually what we want to achieve and it shouldn't cause unnecessary rebuilds.

It works when files have the same inode. Added -s to capture more common use case.
