Fix handling of bit-fields when there is a base class when parsing DWARF

Authored by shafik on Mar 25 2020, 3:19 PM.



When parsing DWARF and laying out bit-fields we currently don't take into account whether we have a base class or not. Currently if the first field is a bit-field but the bit offset is due a field we inherit from a base class we currently treat it as an unnamed bit-field and therefore add an extra field.

This fix will not check if we have a base class and assume that this offset is due to members we are inheriting from the base. We are currently seeing asserts during codegen when debugging clang::DiagnosticOptions.

This assumption will fail in the case where the first field in the derived class in an unnamed bit-field. Fixing the first field being an unnamed bit-field looks like it will require a larger change since we will need a way to track or discover the last field offset of the bases(s).

Couple of minor suggestions inside.


do we need to amend the comment to describe the new conditions?


(this_field_info.bit_offset > last_field_end) ?

(last_field_info.bit_offset > 0) ||
(last_field_info.bit_size > 0) ||

Does this get more readable if you sink the ! into the subexpressions?

Good catch, I forgot about that.


I see what your doing but it feels too clever, I would never get what it means coming back to it a couple of months from now.
