Authored by kyulee on Aug 8 2020, 12:59 PM.

This patch adds -force-remove-attribute that removes an attribute from function.

Fix case style for ParseFunctionAndAttr

Kindly ping.. This patch is convenient to chase down an issue by adding as well as removing an attribute of the function.

Overall this change makes sense. I don't see why we shouldn't have this ability to remove attrs.


Hmm, do we care that we are changing the command line flag? Should -force-attribute imply -force-add-attribute?


"from a function"


Spell: *takes precedence.


Introduce hasForceAttributes as a separate NFC patch.

@chandlerc Do you think -force-attribute should be preserved for any existing scripts or automation that may assume this?

Fix typos from the feedback.

@chandlerc @plotfi I could preserve the original name. Then I think we can have these two - force-attribute and remove-attribute.
I don't mind either direction about naming. Let me know.


Do you mean like this? Isn't it too simple without additional checks like this?

static bool hasForceAttributes() {
  return !ForceAttributes.empty();

Yeah, just mention its to make this diff simpler. I'll approve it.

Adding jmolloy, he seems to be the original author.


I think the renaming isn't necessary -- it'll break any downstream users with no benefit. -force-attribute and -force-remove-attribute are a satisfactory pairing.

  • Preserve the original flag -force-attribute
  • Factor out hasForceAttributes into D85793

Please Update Diff.

I think this LGTM. @kyulee are there any other tests that use this flag? Can you add a test that both adds and also removes some different attributes. Also a test that adds and removes he same attribute too would be good.

Rebase and add more tests.
