Set hidden attribute on lprofMergeValueProfData

Authored by apazos on Dec 19 2018, 11:16 AM.



The changes in cause load time failure
due to lprofMergeValueProfData in Android libs enabled with profile generation:

"dlopen failed: cannot locate symbol "lprofMergeValueProfData" referenced by..."

Marking lprofMergeValueProfData as hidden so the correct in-module definition
is picked by the linker.

A test would need to dump the contents of the symbol table and verify the hidden attribute for that symbol. Do you have something else in mind?

Can you write a test case with a shared library that is instrumented and write a main program with dlopen to demonstrate the problem if the fix is not there?

I observed the issue with instrumented libs in Android. I have not been successful in reducing a test case that would fail on x86 linux.
I can write a test case that shows I can do a dlopen/dlsym of lprofMergeValueProfData from a different library, but with the hidden attribute set on the function, the dlsym call will fail.
Shouldn't we prevent lprofMergeValueProfData from being accessed outside a module?

I added a test case to verify the fix prevents lprofMergeValueProfData from another module from being accessed.
