2019-10-07coccicheck: detect hashmap_entry.hash assignmentEric Wong
Assigning hashmap_entry.hash manually leaves hashmap_entry.next uninitialized, which can be dangerous once the hashmap_entry is inserted into a hashmap.

2019-06-18coccinelle: use COPY_ARRAY for copying arraysRené Scharfe
The current semantic patch for COPY_ARRAY transforms memcpy(3) calls on pointers, but Coccinelle distinguishes them from arrays. It already contains three rules to handle the options for sizeof (i.e. source, destination and type), and handling arrays as source and destination would require four times as many rules if we enumerated all cases. We also don't handle array subscripts, and supporting that would increase the number of rules by another factor of four. (An isomorphism telling Coccinelle that "sizeof x[...]" is equivalent to "sizeof *x" would be nice..) Support arrays and array subscripts, but keep the number of rules down by adding normalization steps: First turn array subscripts into derefences, then determine the types of expressions used with sizeof and replace them with these types, and then convert the different possible combinations of arrays and pointers with memcpy(3) to COPY_ARRAY.

2019-04-16commit.c: add repo_get_commit_tree()Nguyễn Thái Ngọc Duy
Remove the implicit dependency on the_repository in this function. It will be used in sha1-name.c functions when they are updated to take any 'struct repository'. get_commit_tree() remains as a compat wrapper, to be slowly replaced later. Any access to "maybe_tree" field directly will result in _broken_ code after running through commit.cocci because we can't know what is the right repository to use. the_repository would be correct most of the time. But we're relying less and less on the_repository and that assumption may no longer be true. The transformation now is more of a poor man replacement for a C++ compiler catching access to private fields.

2019-04-16commit.cocci: refactor code, avoid double rewriteNguyễn Thái Ngọc Duy
"maybe" pointer in 'struct commit' is tricky because it can be lazily initialized to take advantage of commit-graph if available. This makes it not safe to access directly. This leads to a rule in commit.cocci to rewrite 'x->maybe_tree' to 'get_commit_tree(x)'. But that rule alone could lead to incorrectly rewrite assignments, e.g. from x->maybe_tree = yes to get_commit_tree(x) = yes Because of this we have a second rule to revert this effect. Szeder found out that we could do better by performing the assignment rewrite rule first, then the remaining is read-only access and handled by the current first rule. For this to work, we need to transform "x->maybe_tree = y" to something that does NOT contain "x->maybe_tree" to avoid the original first rule. This is where set_commit_tree() comes in.

2019-01-28strbuf.cocci: suggest strbuf_addbuf() to add one strbuf to an otherSZEDER Gábor
The best way to add one strbuf to an other is via: strbuf_addbuf(&sb, &sb2); This is a bit more idiomatic and efficient than: strbuf_addstr(&sb, sb2.buf); because the size of the second strbuf is known and thus it can spare a strlen() call, and much more so than: strbuf_addf(&sb, "%s", sb2.buf); because it can spare the whole vsnprintf() formatting magic. Add new semantic patches to 'contrib/coccinelle/strbuf.cocci' to catch these undesired patterns and to suggest strbuf_addbuf() instead. Luckily, our codebase is already clean from any such undesired patterns (but one of the in-flight topics just tried to sneak in such a strbuf_addf() call).

2019-01-15cache: make oidcpy always copy GIT_MAX_RAWSZ bytesbrian m. carlson
There are some situations in which we want to store an object ID into struct object_id without the_hash_algo necessarily being set correctly. One such case is when cloning a repository, where we must read refs from the remote side without having a repository from which to read the preferred algorithm. In this cases, we may have the_hash_algo set to SHA-1, which is the default, but read refs into struct object_id that are SHA-256. When copying these values, we will want to copy them completely, not just the first 20 bytes. Consequently, make sure that oidcpy copies the maximum number of bytes at all times, regardless of the setting of the_hash_algo. Since oidcpy and hashcpy are no longer functionally identical, remove the Cocinelle object_id transformations that convert from one into the other.

It is more common to use post-increment than pre-increment when the side effect is the primary thing we want in our code and in C in general (unlike C++). Initializing a variable to 0, incrementing it every time we do something, and checking if we have already done that thing to guard the code to do that thing, is easier to understand when written if (u++) ; /* we've done that! */ else do_it(); /* just once. */ but if you try to use pre-increment, you end up with a less natural looking if (++u > 1) Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
2018-10-15object_id.cocci: match only expressions of type 'struct object_id'SZEDER Gábor
Most of our semantic patches in 'contrib/coccinelle/object_id.cocci' turn calls of SHA1-specific functions into calls of their corresponding object_id counterparts, e.g. sha1_to_hex() to oid_to_hex(). These semantic patches look something like this: @@ expression E1; @@ - sha1_to_hex(E1.hash) + oid_to_hex(&E1) and match the access to the 'hash' field in any data type, not only in 'struct object_id', and, consquently, can produce wrong transformations. Case in point is the recent hash function transition patch "rerere: convert to use the_hash_algo" [1], which, among other things, renamed 'struct rerere_dir's 'sha1' field to 'hash', and then 'make coccicheck' started to suggest the following wrong transformations for 'rerere.c' [2]: - return sha1_to_hex(id->collection->hash); + return oid_to_hex(id->collection); and - DIR *dir = opendir(git_path("rr-cache/%s", sha1_to_hex(rr_dir->hash))); + DIR *dir = opendir(git_path("rr-cache/%s", oid_to_hex(rr_dir))); Avoid such wrong transformations by tightening semantic patches in 'object_id.cocci' to match only type of or pointers to 'struct object_id'.

2018-08-29convert "oidcmp() != 0" to "!oideq()"Jeff King
This is the flip side of the previous two patches: checking for a non-zero oidcmp() can be more strictly expressed as inequality. Like those patches, we write "!= 0" in the coccinelle transformation, which covers by isomorphism the more common: if (oidcmp(E1, E2)) As with the previous two patches, this patch can be achieved almost entirely by running "make coccicheck"; the only differences are manual line-wrap fixes to match the original code. There is one thing to note for anybody replicating this, though: coccinelle 1.0.4 seems to miss the case in builtin/tag.c, even though it's basically the same as all the others. Running with 1.0.7 does catch this, so presumably it's just a coccinelle bug that was fixed in the interim. Signed-off-by: Jeff King <peff@peff.net> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
2018-08-29convert "hashcmp() == 0" to hasheq()Jeff King
This is the partner patch to the previous one, but covering the "hash" variants instead of "oid". Note that our coccinelle rule is slightly more complex to avoid triggering the call in hasheq(). I didn't bother to add a new rule to convert: - hasheq(E1->hash, E2->hash) + oideq(E1, E2) Since these are new functions, there won't be any such existing callers. And since most of the code is already using oideq, we're not likely to introduce new ones. We might still see "!hashcmp(E1->hash, E2->hash)" from topics in flight. But because our new rule comes after the existing ones, that should first get converted to "!oidcmp(E1, E2)" and then to "oideq(E1, E2)".

2018-08-29convert "oidcmp() == 0" to oideq()Jeff King
Using the more restrictive oideq() should, in the long run, give the compiler more opportunities to optimize these callsites. For now, this conversion should be a complete noop with respect to the generated code. The result is also perhaps a little more readable, as it avoids the "zero is equal" idiom. Since it's so prevalent in C, I think seasoned programmers tend not to even notice it anymore, but it can sometimes make for awkward double negations (e.g., we can drop a few !!oidcmp() instances here). This patch was generated almost entirely by the included coccinelle patch. This mechanical conversion should be completely safe, because we check explicitly for cases where oidcmp() is compared to 0, which is what oideq() is doing under the hood. Note that we don't have to catch "!oidcmp()" separately; coccinelle's standard isomorphisms make sure the two are treated equivalently. I say "almost" because I did hand-edit the coccinelle output to fix up a few style violations (it mostly keeps the original formatting, but sometimes unwraps long lines).

2018-08-29coccinelle: use <...> for function exclusionJeff King
Sometimes we want to suppress a coccinelle transformation inside a particular function. For example, in finding conversions of hashcmp() to oidcmp(), we should not convert the call in oidcmp() itself, since that would cause infinite recursion. We write that like this: @@ identifier f != oidcmp; expression E1, E2; @@ f(...) {... - hashcmp(E1->hash, E2->hash) + oidcmp(E1, E2) ...} to match the interior of any function _except_ oidcmp(). Unfortunately, this doesn't catch all cases (e.g., the one in sequencer.c that this patch fixes). The problem, as explained by one of the Coccinelle developers in [1], is: For transformation, A ... B requires that B occur on every execution path starting with A, unless that execution path ends up in error handling code. (eg, if (...) { ... return; }). Here your A is the start of the function. So you need a call to hashcmp on every path through the function, which fails when you add ifs. [...] Another issue with A ... B is that by default A and B should not appear in the matched region. So your original rule matches only the case where every execution path contains exactly one call to hashcmp, not more than one. One way to solve this is to put the pattern inside an angle-bracket pattern like "<... P ...>", which allows zero or more matches of P. That works (and is what this patch does), but it has one drawback: it matches more than we care about, and Coccinelle uses extra CPU. Here are timings for "make coccicheck" before and after this patch: [before] real 1m27.122s user 7m34.451s sys 0m37.330s [after] real 2m18.040s user 10m58.310s sys 0m41.549s That's not ideal, but it's more important for this to be correct than to be fast. And coccicheck is already fairly slow (and people don't run it for every single patch). So it's an acceptable tradeoff. There _is_ a better way to do it, which is to record the position at which we find hashcmp(), and then check it against the forbidden function list. Like: @@ position p : script:python() { p[0].current_element != "oidcmp" }; expression E1,E2; @@ - hashcmp@p(E1->hash, E2->hash) + oidcmp(E1, E2) This is only a little slower than the current code, and does the right thing in all cases. Unfortunately, not all builds of Coccinelle include python support (including the ones in Debian). Requiring it may mean that fewer people can easily run the tool, which is worse than it simply being a little slower. We may want to revisit this decision in the future if: - builds with python become more common - we find more uses for python support that tip the cost-benefit analysis But for now this patch sticks with the angle-bracket solution, and converts all existing cocci patches. This fixes only one missed case in the current code, though it makes a much better difference for some new rules I'm adding (converting "!hashcmp()" to "hasheq()" misses over half the possible conversions using the old form).

2018-05-02coccinelle: avoid wrong transformation suggestions from commit.cocciSZEDER Gábor
The semantic patch 'contrib/coccinelle/commit.cocci' added in 2e27bd7731 (treewide: replace maybe_tree with accessor methods, 2018-04-06) is supposed to "ensure that all references to the 'maybe_tree' member of struct commit are either mutations or accesses through get_commit_tree()". So get_commit_tree() clearly must be able to directly access the 'maybe_tree' member, and 'commit.cocci' has a bit of a roundabout workaround to ensure that get_commit_tree()'s direct access in its return statement is not transformed: after all references to 'maybe_tree' have been transformed to a call to get_commit_tree(), including the reference in get_commit_tree() itself, the last rule transforms back a 'return get_commit_tree()' statement, back then found only in get_commit_tree() itself, to a direct access. Unfortunately, already the very next commit shows that this workaround is insufficient: 7b8a21dba1 (commit-graph: lazy-load trees for commits, 2018-04-06) extends get_commit_tree() with a condition directly accessing the 'maybe_tree' member, and Coccinelle with 'commit.cocci' promptly detects it and suggests a transformation to avoid it. This transformation is clearly wrong, because calling get_commit_tree() to access 'maybe_tree' _in_ get_commit_tree() would obviously lead to recursion. Furthermore, the same commit added another, more specialized getter function get_commit_tree_in_graph(), whose legitimate direct access to 'maybe_tree' triggers a similar wrong transformation suggestion. Exclude both of these getter functions from the general rule in 'commit.cocci' that matches their direct accesses to 'maybe_tree'. Also exclude load_tree_for_commit(), which, as static helper funcion of get_commit_tree_in_graph(), has legitimate direct access to 'maybe_tree' as well. The last rule transforming back 'return get_commit_tree()' statements to direct accesses thus became unnecessary, remove it.

2017-03-10Merge branch 'rs/strbuf-add-real-path'Junio C Hamano
An helper function to make it easier to append the result from real_path() to a strbuf has been added. * rs/strbuf-add-real-path: strbuf: add strbuf_add_real_path() cocci: use ALLOC_ARRAY
2017-02-27strbuf: add strbuf_add_real_path()René Scharfe
Add a function for appending the canonized absolute pathname of a given path to a strbuf. It keeps the existing contents intact, as expected of a function of the strbuf_add() family, while avoiding copying the result if the given strbuf is empty. It's more consistent with the rest of the strbuf API than strbuf_realpath(), which it's wrapping. Also add a semantic patch demonstrating its intended usage and apply it to the current tree. Using strbuf_add_real_path() instead of calling strbuf_addstr() and real_path() avoids an extra copy to a static buffer.

2017-02-27cocci: use ALLOC_ARRAYRené Scharfe
Add a semantic patch for using ALLOC_ARRAY to allocate arrays and apply the transformation on the current source tree. The macro checks for multiplication overflow and infers the element size automatically; the result is shorter and safer code.

2017-02-16Merge branch 'rs/cocci-check-free-only-null'Junio C Hamano
A new coccinelle rule that catches a check of !pointer before the pointer is free(3)d, which most likely is a bug. * rs/cocci-check-free-only-null: cocci: detect useless free(3) calls
2017-02-15Merge branch 'rs/swap'Junio C Hamano
Code clean-up. * rs/swap: graph: use SWAP macro diff: use SWAP macro use SWAP macro apply: use SWAP macro add SWAP macro
2017-02-11cocci: detect useless free(3) callsRené Scharfe
Add a semantic patch for removing checks that cause free(3) to only be called with a NULL pointer, as that must be a programming mistake. Signed-off-by: Rene Scharfe <l.s.r@web.de> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
2017-02-02Merge branch 'rs/absolute-pathdup'Junio C Hamano
Code cleanup. * rs/absolute-pathdup: use absolute_pathdup() abspath: add absolute_pathdup()
2017-01-30add SWAP macroRené Scharfe
Add a macro for exchanging the values of variables. It allows users to avoid repetition and takes care of the temporary variable for them. It also makes sure that the storage sizes of its two parameters are the same. Its memcpy(1) calls are optimized away by current compilers. Also add a conservative semantic patch for transforming only swaps of variables of the same type. Signed-off-by: Rene Scharfe <l.s.r@web.de> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
2017-01-26abspath: add absolute_pathdup()René Scharfe
Add a function that returns a buffer containing the absolute path of its argument and a semantic patch for its intended use. It avoids an extra string copy to a static buffer. Signed-off-by: Rene Scharfe <l.s.r@web.de> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
2016-11-01Merge branch 'rs/cocci'Junio C Hamano
Improve the rule to convert "unsigned char [20]" into "struct object_id *" in contrib/coccinelle/ * rs/cocci: cocci: avoid self-references in object_id transformations
2016-11-01cocci: avoid self-references in object_id transformationsRené Scharfe
The object_id functions oid_to_hex, oid_to_hex_r, oidclr, oidcmp, and oidcpy are defined as wrappers of their legacy counterparts sha1_to_hex, sha1_to_hex_r, hashclr, hashcmp, and hashcpy, respectively. Make sure that the Coccinelle transformations for converting legacy function calls are not applied to these wrappers themselves, which would result in tautological declarations.
