[analyzer] DynamicSize: Remove 'getSizeInElements()' from store

Authored by Charusso on Oct 29 2019, 6:35 PM.



This patch uses the new DynamicSize.cpp to serve dynamic information.
Previously it was static and probably imprecise data.

The [1] patch which introduced such static element-count data has only one test case in outofbound.c:

void f2() {
  int *p = malloc(12);
  p[3] = 4; // expected-warning{{Access out-of-bound array element (buffer overflow)}}

which probably wanted to be (int *)malloc(12), but in both ways the warning occurs, which is problematic. This is the first step to mitigate that issue.

This is the first step to mitigate that issue.

What's the issue?


Even if the size is not concrete, you can ask SValBuilder to perform the division. It's going to be a symbolic expression which we won't be able to work with anyway, but these days we believe that it's still worth it, in hope that our constraint solver eventually gets better.

Well, after I mentioned an issue I have realized the somewhat path-insensitive getSizeInElements() does not touch the (void *) return value. Basically the expression int *foo = malloc() could not compile, and I had felt that the assumptions about the overflow are wrong. Now I see that none of the overflow tests would compile, so I think we just bypass a cast here-and-there. Therefore there is no issue, just I was surprised.


Good idea, thanks!

And then remove the manual division.

Failing Tests (7):
    Clang :: Analysis/misc-ps-region-store.m
    Clang :: Analysis/mpichecker.cpp
    Clang :: Analysis/outofbound.c
    Clang :: Analysis/rdar-6541136-region.c
    Clang :: Analysis/return-ptr-range.cpp
    Clang :: Analysis/track-control-dependency-conditions.cpp
    Clang :: Analysis/uninit-vals.c

I would pick that solution because it may be a tiny-bit faster, and then later on investigate this issue when we model more about dynamic sizes.

Soooooo what does it tell us about the correctness of the new evalBinOp-based solution?

  • Old division swapped by evalBinOp.

Thanks, now it is cool!


So, when I tried to inject an APSInt it converted to 0 so division by zero made that. I felt that the implicit conversion is wonky, but dividing by 0, ugh.

Yay, great job figuring this out!

Also the conversion wasn't implicit; you explicitly specified llvm::APSInt(...). I agree that this constructor is evil, though.


I'd rather do a castAs here. Allocating a region of garbage size should be an immediate warning; supplying a zero-size ElementTy should be an immediate crash; in all other cases the result of division must be defined.

Thanks for the review!


getQuantity() retuns a QuantityType, but now I see: typedef int64_t QuantityType, so I was fooled.

This revision was automatically updated to reflect the committed changes.

I think this patch may fix this bug
Could you please verify and close it if so?
At least I couldn't reproduce it on the latest build.
