[clang-tidy] Add bugprone-undefined-memory-manipulation check.

Authored by rnkovacs on Jul 6 2017, 5:50 AM.



Finds calls of memory manipulation functions memset(), memcpy() and memmove() on not TriviallyCopyable objects, as these always result in an undefined behavior.

Moved to module bugprone created by D32700.

As usual, please run the check at least on LLVM+Clang and include a brief summary of results into the description of the patch.

Another thing is that at this point I'd already create a bugprone module (if nobody has a better name) and place the check there (together with the other memset-related check).

nit: No need for the parentheses.

What about memset?

memset has a bit different signature than the other two. It has a fill value as its second argument instead of a source object.

Ah, now I get it. We're inspecting the second argument here.

This revision was automatically updated to reflect the committed changes.

FYI, bugprone-undefined-memory-manipulation crashes on some of our code. I guess, this happens with dependent types, but I don't have an isolated repro yet.

The top of stack trace is:

clang::tidy::bugprone::(anonymous namespace)::internal::matcher_isNotTriviallyCopyableMatcher::matches()

Dependent types seem to work, but we did manage to produce a crash on incomplete types. I created D35790 for that. I hope it's the same problem you encountered.
