Add NetBSD syscall hooks skeleton in sanitizers

Authored by krytarowski on Jan 14 2018, 11:20 PM.



Implement the skeleton of NetBSD syscall hooks for use with sanitizers.

Add a script that generates the rules to handle syscalls
on NetBSD: generate_netbsd_syscalls.awk. It has been written
in NetBSD awk(1) (patched nawk) and is compatible with gawk.

Generate lib/sanitizer_common/sanitizer_platform_limits_netbsd.h
that is a public header for applications, and included as:

Generate that defines all the
syscall rules for NetBSD. This file is modeled after the Linux
specific file:

Start recognizing NetBSD syscalls with existing sanitizers:
ASan, ESan, HWASan, TSan, MSan.

Extracted from a larger patch D41588.

Can we start upstreaming this one? I will keep pushing 1 syscall with 1 patch proposal with attached tests.

@vitalybuka who could review this? I can land this code as is without a reviewer and ask for review for newer patches in the same topic.

In Future other BSDs could follow NetBSD and craft their scripts to generate similar files in similar fashion.
We diverged around 1995, but the core set of syscalls and format is similar (but not the same).

I've decided after evaluations that I will commit NetBSD-only code with the bodies of syscalls without review. As the amounts of code are not really reviewable in reasonable timeframe (over 11k lines of diff). It would be a fulltime effort of few months, but right now nobody can keep reviewing it in this mode.
