[Driver] Verify GCCInstallation is valid

Authored by nickdesaulniers on Feb 7 2019, 4:40 PM.



Values returned by GCCInstallation.getParentLibPath() and
GCCInstallation.getTriple() are not valid unless
GCCInstallation.isValid() returns true. This has previously been
ignored, and the former two values were used without checking whether
GCCInstallation is valid. This led to the bad path "/../bin" being added
to the list of program paths.

Would it be reasonable to have a test for this with perhaps an invalid GCC installation? There is some mock GCC/sysroot testing in and I am not sure that it will be easy to trip this same bug that way, but I think it is possible.

Do we need to add the same check here too?

I'd say no, we don't need it here. If GCCInstallation is not valid, then GCCInstallation.getParentLibPath() will probably return the empty string, and .find("opt/rh/devtoolset") on that empty string will probably return StringRef::npos, in which case the if body is not run.
I understand the concern, but I think, in this case, we got lucky.

@danielmentz thanks for this patch! Some teammates are running into issues that would be fixed by this patch.

I think @srhines is asking for a test similar to what I wrote in r344941 (, and shouldn't be too much work (basically test that --gcc-toolchain=<garbage> fails in an explicit way.

Would you mind adding such a test, so we can ship this useful fix?
