[analyzer] PR41185: Fix regression where __builtin_* functions weren't recognized

Authored by Szelethus on Mar 26 2019, 4:03 AM.



For the following code snippet:

void builtin_function_call_crash_fixes(char *c) {
  __builtin_strncpy(c, "", 6);
  __builtin_memset(c, '\0', (0));
  __builtin_memcpy(c, c, 0);

security.insecureAPI.DeprecatedOrUnsafeBufferHandling caused a regression, as it didn't recognize functions starting with __builtin_. Fixed exactly that.

I wanted to modify an existing test file, but the two I found didn't seem like perfect candidates. While I was there, I prettified their RUN: lines.

Please add a testcase on which the checker crashed, but this patch resolves it.

Also, I think (in this particular case) that removing an assert is not a good idea. It is there for a reason, without it, we wouldn't have discovered this issue either. I think, as I mentioned in the inline, we should just strip `"__builtin_".

Shouldn't we just do this instead?

This guarantees that if we strip "__builtin_" within WalkAST::checkDeprecatedOrUnsafeBufferHandling, we won't run into an assertation failure.

Thanks for addressing this! Please add the test cases from

Artem, I'd appreciate, if you found time to finish this fix. The bug is causing most failures in our setup. Thanks!

Implemented the fix I proposed in my earlier comment. While I was there, I prettified some of the other tests, and also made sure that the core package is enabled in their run lines.

Uhh, sorry for the spam. Realized that these are not path sensitive checkers. Removed the core packages from the invocations. Actual logic of the patch is untouched.
