[analyzer][NFC] Merge checkNewAllocator's paramaters into CXXAllocatorCall

Authored by Szelethus on Mar 1 2020, 4:51 PM.



Party based on this thread:

This patch merges two of CXXAllocatorCall's parameters, so that we are able to supply a CallEvent object to check::NewAllocatorCall (see the description of D75430 to see why this would be great).

One of the things mentioned by @NoQ was the following:

I think at this point we might actually do a good job sorting out this check::NewAllocator issue because we have a "separate" "Environment" to hold the other SVal, which is "objects under construction"! - so we should probably simply teach CXXAllocatorCall to extract the value from the objects-under-construction trait of the program state and we're good.

I had MallocChecker in my crosshair for now, so I admittedly threw together something as a proof of concept. Now that I know that this effort is worth pursuing though, I'll happily look for a solution better then demonstrated in this patch.

I believe this solution exactly what Artem suggested, so there is nothing to feel bad about. Cool.

Other than a nit looks good to me but wait for @NoQ before committing.


Since SValBuilder has relatively little to do with call events I am kind of surprised seeing this here.

Why does this method accept a state? Can't we use our own state?

Inlines addressed, rebase.

Hmm, upon taking a look at alignment new in previous patches, I think implementing a checker for MEM57-CPP. Avoid using default operator new for over-aligned types seems a very low hanging fruit, though probably not a common source of bugs.

Great, thanks!!
