[analyzer] Conditionnaly include clang Analysis examples with cmake.

Authored by Jiboo on Sep 21 2019, 9:21 AM.



Without this patch, the clang Analysis plugin examples (in clang/lib/Analysis/plugins) are always built and installed even if CLANG_BUILD_EXAMPLES is OFF.

When using llvm-toolchain-bionic in the package llvm-10-dev includes a LLVMExports.cmake which includes thus samples. See /data/user/lib/llvm-10/lib/cmake/llvm/LLVMExports.cmake in

When trying to use llvm-10-dev using CMake from travis (with this config, I get the error:

CMake Error at /usr/lib/llvm-10/lib/cmake/llvm/LLVMExports.cmake:1341 (message):
The imported target "SampleAnalyzerPlugin" references the file
but this file does not exist.  Possible reasons include:
* The file was deleted, renamed, or moved to another location.
* An install or uninstall procedure did not complete successfully.
* The installation package was faulty and contained
but not all the files it references.

I couldn't find in any other packages (clang-10-examples only has sources), so I tried to replicate the problem locally, CLANG_BUILD_EXAMPLES was OFF, although the sample plugins were built and installed. Deleting /usr/local/lib/ replicated the travis error.

This fix looks ok to me, although I'm no CMake expert, particularly in LLVM context, and I might cure a symptom and not the cause, but with this patch if CLANG_BUILD_EXAMPLES is OFF, they don't appear in LLVMExports.cmake are not build/installed, and vice-versa if it's ON.

Sure it isn't just the SampleAnalyzer that should be wrapped into CLANG_BUILD_EXAMPLES?

Dunno, I though they were all examples, due to their contents:

CheckerDependencyHandling: registry.addDependency("example.DependendentChecker", "example.Dependency");
CheckerOptionHandling: registry.addChecker(registerMyChecker, shouldRegisterMyChecker, "example.MyChecker", "Example Description",

Apologies for the intrusion, but these plugins were added by me, and test an important case for our internal plugins. Could you please give me just a day or so the check whether the tests work for us correctly?

@Szelethus take your time, I find it strange to be the first with the problem (couldn't find reference on google or llvm bug tracker), I wouldn't be surprised if I fucked up somewhere and that this patch isn't really necessary.

Actually, uh oh. @Jiboo can you please file this as a bug?
This really should go into next patch release. CC @tstellar

@Szelethus this breaks LLVMExports.cmake as compared with LLVM-8, so it's actually a critical bug.

I have no objections to this patch. I know that a variety patches played with these plugins and it moved all over the place, so I see that these are kind of touchy :/

I didn't know about this patch and published D68172: adding BUILDTREE_ONLY still builds the examples, but doesn't install them. It's also used by other test plugins like llvm/lib/Transforms/Hello.
Thanks to @lebedev.ri for informing my about this patch.

@aaronpuchert thanks, that looks like a better fix than mine for PR43430, although I'm not sure D68172 obsoletes this patch.
@Szelethus could you confirm that thus examples shouldn't be built when CLANG_BUILD_EXAMPLES is OFF, and that this patch is still valid?

The problem is that CLANG_BUILD_EXAMPLES is off by default. Maybe we want to build these plugins by default though to make sure there are no compiler errors. Since their compilation shouldn't take a lot of time, I think that is a reasonable position to assume.
