[sanitizer] Split Symbolizer/StackTraces from core RTSanitizerCommon

Authored by cryptoad on Apr 9 2018, 2:26 PM.



Host symbolizer & stacktraces related code in their own RT:
RTSanitizerCommonSymbolizer, which is "libcdep" by nature. Symbolizer &
stacktraces specific code that used to live in common files is moved to a new
file as is.

The purpose of this is the enforce a separation between code that relies on
symbolization and code that doesn't. This saves the inclusion of spurious code
due to the interface functions with default visibility, and the extra data

The following sanitizers makefiles were modified & tested locally:

  • dfsan: doesn't require the new symbolizer RT
  • esan: requires it
  • hwasan: requires it
  • lsan: requires it
  • msan: requires it
  • safestack: doesn't require it
  • xray: doesn't require it
  • tsan: requires it
  • ubsan: requires it
  • ubsan_minimal: doesn't require it
  • scudo: requires it (but not for Fuchsia that has a minimal runtime)

This was tested locally on Linux, Android, Fuchsia.

You're one dash short here and in the line below :)

Aleksey pointed out I was a dash short in the comment. It turns out I copied it
from which was also 1 short on each line. So update that
as well, and

So the triple / comes from
The main body is a doxygen comment (identified by the /// comment marker instead of the usual //) describing the purpose of the file.

Anyone else for comments?

most of this code was in
now its in the file without prefix, so in common file
could this be a problem?

As far as I can tell, this didn't matter anywhere.
I think the _libcdep suffixes could go away for RTSanitizerCommonCoverage & RTSanitizerCommonSymbolizer files if the contract is that they are libc-dependent by nature. The only nolibc consummer that I can see is SafeStack, which depends on neither, so the distinction between libc & nolibc could be reduced to only the core RTSanitizerCommon files.

Once this lands, I can see some added value to consolidating headers & removing dead code as well to see if the distinction can be further reduced.
