[llvm-readelf/obj] - Move unique warning handling logic to the `ObjDumper`.

Authored by grimar on Nov 27 2020, 2:51 AM.



This moves the reportUniqueWarning method to the base class.

My motivation is the following:
I've experimented with replacing reportWarning calls with reportUniqueWarning
in ELF dumper. I've found that for example for removing them from DynRegionInfo helper
class, it is worth to pass a dumper instance to it (to be able to call dumper()->reportUniqueWarning()).
The problem was that ELFDumper<ELFT> is a template class. I had to make DynRegionInfo to be templated
and do lots of minor changes everywhere what did not look reasonable/nice.

At the same time I guess one day other dumpers like COFF/MachO/Wasm etc might want to
start using reportUniqueWarning API too. Then it looks reasonable to move the logic to the
base class.

With that the problem of passing the dumper instance will be gone.

LGTM. The inline suggestion probably deserves a separate patch. Might want to wait and give others an opportunity to chime in, especially as it's Thanksgiving weekend in the US.


Maybe we could simplify this by having WarningHandler not return an Error at all? What do you think?

I think we can't do this, because this WarningHandler is used as argument to the API from ELF.h:

// This is a callback that can be passed to a number of functions.
// It can be used to ignore non-critical errors (warnings), which is
// useful for dumpers, like llvm-readobj.
// It accepts a warning message string and returns a success
// when the warning should be ignored or an error otherwise.
using WarningHandler = llvm::function_ref<Error(const Twine &Msg)>;
template <class ELFT>
ELFFile<ELFT>::getSectionName(const Elf_Shdr &Section,
                              WarningHandler WarnHandler) const {
  auto SectionsOrErr = sections();
  if (!SectionsOrErr)
    return SectionsOrErr.takeError();
  auto Table = getSectionStringTable(*SectionsOrErr, WarnHandler);
  if (!Table)
    return Table.takeError();
  return getSectionName(Section, *Table);
