[AMDGPU] Improve disassembler error handling

Authored by timcorringham on Mar 20 2018, 9:05 AM.



llvm-objdump now disassembles unrecognised opcodes as data, using
the .long directive. We treat unrecognised opcodes as being 32 bit
values, so move along 4 bytes rather than the single byte which
previously resulted in a cascade of bogus disassembly following an
unrecognised opcode.

While no solution can always disassemble code that contains
embedded data correctly this provides a significant improvement.

Adding Dmitry.

Does this resolve any bugzilla?

This implements Bug 36347

We have to look into it. Meanwhile, could you please update the patch description with bugzilla id so it will get into svn when checked in. Thanks.

What if there are less than 4 bytes left? Let's make sure that we are not getting into undefined behavior in such a case.

This should return the minimum of 4 or the number of bytes remaining if the disassembly failed.

Currently there is code in DisassembleObject() - line 1475 - that truncates the section to a multiple of 4 bytes, so we won't encounter the case of having fewer than 4 bytes left here.
However, maybe we should rethink that behaviour as it would be possible for data to be deliberately added to the end of a section that resulted in a non-multiple-of-4 length, and we could cope with that in the disassembly by using .byte directives.

Could you add an assert?

assert(Bytes.size() % sizeof(U32) == 0);

With this assert the assumption about section length will be clear. A relevant comment would be helpful too.

Otherwise look fine.

I am second to this. Let's make our assumptions (specifically, an assumption that DisassembleObject() truncates the section to a multiple of 4 bytes) expliicit.

Added support for disassembly of arbitrary size sections

The text section size is no longer truncated to a multiple
of 4 bytes, and the .byte directive is used to disassemble
any remaining bytes at the end of a section.

Looks good.
