[libunwind] Bare-metal DWARF: set dso_base to 0

Authored by rprichard on Aug 27 2020, 4:22 PM.



Previously, DwarfFDECache::findFDE used 0 as a special value meaning
"search the entire cache, including dynamically-registered FDEs".
Switch this special value to -1, which doesn't make sense as a DSO

Fixes PR47335.

Looks overall reasonable to me, but it's been years since I touched that code or used an environment involving it, so someone else would have to sign off on it.

Why not use -1 as the indicator instead of 0?

Why not use -1 as the indicator instead of 0?

Just to be sure, the proposal is to use 0 for dso_base and -1 for DwarfFDECache::findFDE to mean "search everything"?

I think that will work, because -1 seems unlikely to appear as a genuine dso_base.

Use -1 to indicate "search all cache entries".

Yes, sorry I wasn't clear about that, but you understood correctly. I was suggesting using -1 as the search all, since it doesn't make sense as a DSO base. Minor comment about a possible constexpr improvement, but doesn't require a re-review.


I wonder if we can get away with constexpr in addition to const.

constexpr should work -- libunwind doesn't use it yet, but it uses other C++11 features (e.g. I'll switch it from const to constexpr, which also implies const for a variable.
