2021-02-18grep/pcre2: move definitions of pcre2_{malloc,free}Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason
Move the definitions of the pcre2_{malloc,free} functions above the compile_pcre2_pattern() function they're used in. Before the preceding commit they used to be needed earlier, but now we can move them to be adjacent to the other PCREv2 functions.

2021-02-18grep/pcre2: move back to thread-only PCREv2 structuresÆvar Arnfjörð Bjarmason
Change the setup of the "pcre2_general_context" to happen per-thread in compile_pcre2_pattern() instead of in grep_init(). This change brings it in line with how the rest of the pcre2_* members in the grep_pat structure are set up. As noted in the preceding commit the approach 513f2b0bbd4 (grep: make PCRE2 aware of custom allocator, 2019-10-16) took to allocate the pcre2_general_context seems to have been initially based on a misunderstanding of how PCREv2 memory allocation works. The approach of creating a global context in grep_init() is just added complexity for almost zero gain. On my system it's 24 bytes saved per-thread. For comparison PCREv2 will then go on to allocate at least a kilobyte for its own thread-local state. As noted in 6d423dd542f (grep: don't redundantly compile throwaway patterns under threading, 2017-05-25) the grep code is intentionally not trying to micro-optimize allocations by e.g. sharing some PCREv2 structures globally, while making others thread-local. So let's remove this special case and make all of them thread-local again for simplicity. With this change we could move the pcre2_{malloc,free} functions around to live closer to their current use. I'm not doing that here to keep this change small, that cleanup will be done in a follow-up commit. See also the discussion in 94da9193a6 (grep: add support for PCRE v2, 2017-06-01) about thread safety, and Johannes's comments[1] to the effect that we should be doing what this patch is doing. 1. https://lore.kernel.org/git/nycvar.QRO.7.76.6.1908052120302.46@tvgsbejvaqbjf.bet/ Signed-off-by: Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason <avarab@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
2021-02-18grep/pcre2: actually make pcre2 use custom allocatorÆvar Arnfjörð Bjarmason
Continue work started in 513f2b0bbd4 (grep: make PCRE2 aware of custom allocator, 2019-10-16) and make PCREv2 use our pcre2_{malloc,free}(). functions for allocation. We'll now use it for all PCREv2 allocations. The reason 513f2b0bbd4 worked as a bugfix for the USE_NED_ALLOCATOR issue is because it targeted the allocation freed via free(), as opposed to by a pcre2_*free() function. I.e. the pcre2_maketables() and pcre2_maketables_free() pair. For most of the rest we continued allocating with stock malloc() inside PCREv2 itself, but didn't segfault because we'd use its corresponding free(). In a preceding commit of mine I changed the free() to pcre2_maketables_free() on versions of PCREv2 10.34 and newer. So as far as fixing the segfault goes we could revert 513f2b0bbd4. But then we wouldn't use the desired allocator, let's just use it instead. Before this patch we'd on e.g.: grep --threads=1 -iP æ.*var.*xyz Only use pcre2_{malloc,free}() for 2 malloc() calls and 2 corresponding free() calls. Now it's 12 calls to each. This can be observed with the GREP_PCRE2_DEBUG_MALLOC debug mode. Reading the history of how this bug got introduced it wasn't present in Johannes's original patch[1] to fix the issue. My reading of that thread is that the approach the follow-up patches to Johannes's original pursued were based on misunderstanding of how the PCREv2 API works. In particular this part of [2]: "most of the time (like when using UTF-8) the chartable (and therefore the global context) is not needed (even when using alternate allocators)" That's simply not how PCREv2 memory allocation works. It's easy to see how the misunderstanding came about. It's because (as noted above) the issue was noticed because of our use of free() in our own grep.c for freeing the memory allocated by pcre2_maketables(). Thus the misunderstanding that PCREv2's compile context is something only needed for pcre2_maketables(), and e.g. an aborted earlier attempt[3] to only set it up when we ourselves called pcre2_maketables(). That's not what PCREv2's compile context is. To quote PCREv2's documentation: "This context just contains pointers to (and data for) external memory management functions that are called from several places in the PCRE2 library." Thus the failed attempts to go down the route of only creating the general context in cases where we ourselves call pcre2_maketables(), before finally settling on the approach 513f2b0bbd4 took of always creating it, but then mostly not using it. Instead we should always create it, and then pass the general context to those functions that accept it, so that they'll consistently use our preferred memory allocation functions. 1. https://lore.kernel.org/git/3397e6797f872aedd18c6d795f4976e1c579514b.1565005867.git.gitgitgadget@gmail.com/ 2. https://lore.kernel.org/git/CAPUEsphMh_ZqcH3M7PXC9jHTfEdQN3mhTAK2JDkdvKBp53YBoA@mail.gmail.com/ 3. https://lore.kernel.org/git/20190806085014.47776-3-carenas@gmail.com/ Signed-off-by: Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason <avarab@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
2021-02-18grep/pcre2: use pcre2_maketables_free() functionÆvar Arnfjörð Bjarmason
Make use of the pcre2_maketables_free() function to free the memory allocated by pcre2_maketables(). At first sight it's strange that 10da030ab75 (grep: avoid leak of chartables in PCRE2, 2019-10-16) which added the free() call here doesn't make use of the pcre2_free() the author introduced in the preceding commit in 513f2b0bbd4 (grep: make PCRE2 aware of custom allocator, 2019-10-16). The reason is that at the time the function didn't exist. It was first introduced in PCREv2 version 10.34, released on 2019-11-21. Let's make use of it behind a macro. I don't think this matters for anything to do with custom allocators, but it makes our use of PCREv2 more discoverable. At some distant point in the future we'll be able to drop the version guard, as nobody will be running a version older than 10.34.

It might be cuter to do this at runtime since we don't have to do the "major >= 11 || (major >= 10 && ...)" test. But in the next commit we'll add another version comparison that absolutely needs to be done at compile-time, so we're better of being consistent across the board.

2021-02-18grep/pcre2: drop needless assignment + assert() on opt->pcre2Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason
Drop an assignment added in b65abcafc7a (grep: use PCRE v2 for optimized fixed-string search, 2019-07-01) and the overly cautious assert() I added in 94da9193a6e (grep: add support for PCRE v2, 2017-06-01). There was never a good reason for this, it's just a relic from when I initially wrote the PCREv2 support. We're not going to have confusion about compile_pcre2_pattern() being called when it shouldn't just because we forgot to cargo-cult this opt->pcre2 option. Furthermore the "struct grep_opt" is (mostly) used for the options the user supplied, let's avoid the pattern of needlessly assigning to it. With my recent removal of the PCREv1 backend in 7599730b7e2 (Remove support for v1 of the PCRE library, 2021-01-24) there's even less confusion around what we call where in these codepaths, which is one more reason to remove this.

2021-01-26grep/log: remove hidden --debug and --grep-debug optionsÆvar Arnfjörð Bjarmason
Remove the hidden "grep --debug" and "log --grep-debug" options added in 17bf35a3c7b (grep: teach --debug option to dump the parse tree, 2012-09-13). At the time these options seem to have been intended to go along with a documentation discussion and to help the author of relevant tests to perform ad-hoc debugging on them[1]. Reasons to want this gone: 1. They were never documented, and the only (rather trivial) use of them in our own codebase for testing is something I removed back in e01b4dab01e (grep: change non-ASCII -i test to stop using --debug, 2017-05-20). 2. Googling around doesn't show any in-the-wild uses I could dig up, and on the Git ML the only mentions after the original discussion seem to have been when they came up in unrelated diff contexts, or that test commit of mine. 3. An exception to that is c581e4a7499 (grep: under --debug, show whether PCRE JIT is enabled, 2019-08-18) where we added the ability to dump out when PCREv2 has the JIT in effect. The combination of that and my earlier b65abcafc7a (grep: use PCRE v2 for optimized fixed-string search, 2019-07-01) means Git prints this out in its most common in-the-wild configuration: $ git log --grep-debug --grep=foo --grep=bar --grep=baz --all-match pcre2_jit_on=1 pcre2_jit_on=1 pcre2_jit_on=1 [all-match] (or pattern_body<body>foo (or pattern_body<body>bar pattern_body<body>baz ) ) $ git grep --debug \( -e foo --and -e bar \) --or -e baz pcre2_jit_on=1 pcre2_jit_on=1 pcre2_jit_on=1 (or (and patternfoo patternbar ) patternbaz ) I.e. for each pattern we're considering for the and/or/--all-match etc. debugging we'll now diligently spew out another identical line saying whether the PCREv2 JIT is on or not. I think that nobody's complained about that rather glaringly obviously bad output says something about how much this is used, i.e. it's not. The need for this debugging aid for the composed grep/log patterns seems to have passed, and the desire to dump the JIT config seems to have been another one-off around the time we had JIT-related issues on the PCREv2 codepath. That the original author of this debugging facility seemingly hasn't noticed the bad output since then[2] is probably some indicator. 1. https://lore.kernel.org/git/cover.1347615361.git.git@drmicha.warpmail.net/ 2. https://lore.kernel.org/git/xmqqk1b8x0ac.fsf@gitster-ct.c.googlers.com/ Signed-off-by: Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason <avarab@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
2021-01-25grep/pcre2: better support invalid UTF-8 haystacksÆvar Arnfjörð Bjarmason
Improve the support for invalid UTF-8 haystacks given a non-ASCII needle when using the PCREv2 backend. This is a more complete fix for a bug I started to fix in 870eea8166 (grep: do not enter PCRE2_UTF mode on fixed matching, 2019-07-26), now that PCREv2 has the PCRE2_MATCH_INVALID_UTF mode we can make use of it. This fixes the sort of case described in 8a5999838e (grep: stess test PCRE v2 on invalid UTF-8 data, 2019-07-26), i.e.: - The subject string is non-ASCII (e.g. "ævar") - We're under a is_utf8_locale(), e.g. "en_US.UTF-8", not "C" - We are using --ignore-case, or we're a non-fixed pattern If those conditions were satisfied and we matched found non-valid UTF-8 data PCREv2 might bark on it, in practice this only happened under the JIT backend (turned on by default on most platforms). Ultimately this fixes a "regression" in b65abcafc7 ("grep: use PCRE v2 for optimized fixed-string search", 2019-07-01), I'm putting that in scare-quotes because before then we wouldn't properly support these complex case-folding, locale etc. cases either, it just broke in different ways. There was a bug related to this the PCRE2_NO_START_OPTIMIZE flag fixed in PCREv2 10.36. It can be worked around by setting the PCRE2_NO_START_OPTIMIZE flag. Let's do that in those cases, and add tests for the bug. Signed-off-by: Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason <avarab@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
2021-01-24Remove support for v1 of the PCRE libraryÆvar Arnfjörð Bjarmason
Remove support for using version 1 of the PCRE library. Its use has been discouraged by upstream for a long time, and it's in a bugfix-only state. Anyone who was relying on v1 in particular got a nudge to move to v2 in e6c531b808 (Makefile: make USE_LIBPCRE=YesPlease mean v2, not v1, 2018-03-11), which was first released as part of v2.18.0. With this the LIBPCRE2 test prerequisites is redundant to PCRE. But I'm keeping it for self-documentation purposes, and to avoid conflict with other in-flight PCRE patches. I'm also not changing all of our own "pcre2" names to "pcre", i.e. the inverse of 6d4b5747f0 (grep: change internal *pcre* variable & function names to be *pcre1*, 2017-05-25). I don't see the point, and it makes the history/blame harder to read. Maybe if there's ever a PCRE v3...

2020-11-30grep: copy struct in one fell swoopMartin Ågren
We have a `struct grep_opt` with our defaults which we then copy into the caller's struct. Rather than zeroing the target struct and copying each element one by one, just copy everything at once. This leaves the code simpler and more maintainable. We don't have any ownership issues with what we're copying now and can just greedily copy the whole thing.

`init_grep_defaults()` fills a `static struct grep_opt grep_defaults`. This struct is then used by `grep_init()` as a blueprint for other such structs. Notably, `grep_init()` takes a `struct repo *` and assigns it into the target struct. As a result, it is unnecessary for us to take a `struct repo *` in `init_grep_defaults()` as well. We assign it into the default struct and never look at it again. And in light of how we return early if we have already set up the default struct, it's not just unnecessary, but is also a bit confusing: If we are called twice and with different repos, is it a bug or a feature that we ignore the second repo?

2020-01-17grep: replace grep_read_mutex by internal obj read lockMatheus Tavares
git-grep uses 'grep_read_mutex' to protect its calls to object reading operations. But these have their own internal lock now, which ensures a better performance (allowing parallel access to more regions). So, let's remove the former and, instead, activate the latter with enable_obj_read_lock(). Sections that are currently protected by 'grep_read_mutex' but are not internally protected by the object reading lock should be surrounded by obj_read_lock() and obj_read_unlock(). These guarantee mutual exclusion with object reading operations, keeping the current behavior and avoiding race conditions. Namely, these places are: In grep.c: - fill_textconv() at fill_textconv_grep(). - userdiff_get_textconv() at grep_source_1(). In builtin/grep.c: - parse_object_or_die() and the submodule functions at grep_submodule(). - deref_tag() and gitmodules_config_oid() at grep_objects(). If these functions become thread-safe, in the future, we might remove the locking and probably get some speedup. Note that some of the submodule functions will already be thread-safe (or close to being thread-safe) with the internal object reading lock. However, as some of them will require additional modifications to be removed from the critical section, this will be done in its own patch.

2020-01-17grep: fix race conditions on userdiff callsMatheus Tavares
git-grep uses an internal grep_read_mutex to protect object reading operations. Similarly, there's a grep_attr_mutex to protect calls to the gitattributes machinery. However, two of the three functions protected by the last mutex may also perform object reading, as seen below: - userdiff_get_textconv() > notes_cache_init() > notes_cache_match_validity() > lookup_commit_reference_gently() > parse_object() > repo_has_object_file() > repo_has_object_file_with_flags() > oid_object_info_extended() - userdiff_find_by_path() > git_check_attr() > collect_some_attrs() > prepare_attr_stack() > read_attr() > read_attr_from_index() > read_blob_data_from_index() > read_object_file() As these calls are not protected by grep_read_mutex, there might be race conditions with other threads performing object reading (e.g. threads calling fill_textconv() at grep.c:fill_textconv_grep()). To prevent that, let's make sure to acquire the lock before both of these calls. Note: this patch might slow down the threaded grep in worktree, for the sake of thread-safeness. However, in the following patches, we should regain performance by replacing grep_read_mutex for an internal object reading lock and allowing parallel inflation during object reading.

2019-11-30grep: don't return an expression from pcre2_free()Hans Jerry Illikainen
Previously, the void pcre2_free() function in grep.c returned free(). While free() itself is void, afaict it's still an expression as per section A.2.3, subsection 6.8.6 (jump-statement) in both C99 [1] and C11 [2]: > return expression Section 6.8.6.4 in C99 [1] and C11 [2] says that: > A return statement with an expression shall not appear in a function > whose return type is void.

2019-10-18grep: make PCRE2 aware of custom allocatorCarlo Marcelo Arenas Belón
94da9193a6 (grep: add support for PCRE v2, 2017-06-01) didn't include a way to override the system allocator, and so it is incompatible with custom allocators (e.g. nedmalloc). This problem became obvious when we tried to plug a memory leak by `free()`ing a data structure allocated by PCRE2, triggering a segfault in Windows (where we use nedmalloc by default). PCRE2 requires the use of a general context to override the allocator and therefore, there is a lot more code needed than in PCRE1, including a couple of wrapper functions. Extend the grep API with a "destructor" that could be called to cleanup any objects that were created and used globally. Update `builtin/grep.c` to use that new API, but any other future users should make sure to have matching `grep_init()`/`grep_destroy()` calls if they are using the pattern matching functionality. Move some of the logic that was before done per thread (in the workers) into an earlier phase to avoid degrading performance, but as the use of PCRE2 with custom allocators is better understood it is expected more of its functions will be instructed to use the custom allocator as well as was done in the original code[1] this work was based on.

63e7e9d8b6 ("git-grep: Learn PCRE", 2011-05-09) didn't include a way to override the system alocator, and so it is incompatible with USE_NED_ALLOCATOR as reported by Dscho[1] (in similar code from PCRE2) Note that nedmalloc, as well as other custom allocators like jemalloc and mi-malloc, can be configured at runtime (via `LD_PRELOAD`), therefore we cannot know at compile time whether a custom allocator is used or not. Make the minimum change possible to ensure this combination is supported by extending `grep_init()` to set the PCRE1 specific functions to Git's idea of `malloc()` and `free()` and therefore making sure all allocations are done inside PCRE1 with the same allocator than the rest of Git. This change has negligible performance impact: PCRE needs to allocate memory once per program run for the character table and for each pattern compilation. These are both rare events compared to matching patterns against lines. Actual measurements[2] show that the impact is lost in the noise.

2019-09-09grep: skip UTF8 checks explicitlyCarlo Marcelo Arenas Belón
18547aacf5 ("grep/pcre: support utf-8", 2016-06-25) that was released with git 2.10 added the PCRE_UTF8 flag to PCRE1 matching including a call to has_non_ascii() to try to avoid breakage if there was non-utf8 encoded content in the haystack. Usually PCRE is compiled with JIT support (even if is not the default), and therefore the codepath used includes calling pcre_jit_exec, which skips UTF-8 validation by design (which might result in crashes or hangs) but when JIT support wasn't compiled we use pcre_exec instead with the posibility that grep might be aborted if invalid UTF-8 is found in the haystack. PCRE1 provides a flag since Mar 5, 2007 that could be used to skip the checks explicitly so use that to make both codepaths equivalent (the flag is ignored by pcre1_jit_exec) this fix is only implemented for PCRE1 because PCRE2 is likely to have a better solution (without the risks) instead in the future Helped-by: Johannes Schindelin <Johannes.Schindelin@gmx.de> Helped-by: Eric Sunshine <sunshine@sunshineco.com> Helped-by: Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason <avarab@gmail.com> Suggested-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com> Signed-off-by: Carlo Marcelo Arenas Belón <carenas@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>

As discussed in the last commit partially fix a bug introduced in b65abcafc7 ("grep: use PCRE v2 for optimized fixed-string search", 2019-07-01). Because PCRE v2, unlike kwset, validates its UTF-8 input we'd die on e.g.: fatal: pcre2_match failed with error code -22: UTF-8 error: isolated byte with 0x80 bit set When grepping a non-ASCII fixed string. This is a more general problem that's hard to fix, but we can at least fix the most common case of grepping for a fixed string without "-i". I can't think of a reason for why we'd turn on PCRE2_UTF when matching byte-for-byte like that.

2019-07-26grep: stess test PCRE v2 on invalid UTF-8 dataÆvar Arnfjörð Bjarmason
Since my b65abcafc7 ("grep: use PCRE v2 for optimized fixed-string search", 2019-07-01) we've been dying on invalid UTF-8 data when grepping for fixed strings if the following are all true: * The subject string is non-ASCII (e.g. "ævar") * We're under a is_utf8_locale(), e.g. "en_US.UTF-8", not "C" * We compiled with PCRE v2 * That PCRE v2 did not have JIT support The last of those is why this wasn't caught earlier, per pcre2jit(3): "unless PCRE2_NO_UTF_CHECK is set, a UTF subject string is tested for validity. In the interests of speed, these checks do not happen on the JIT fast path, and if invalid data is passed, the result is undefined." I.e. the subject being matched against our pattern was invalid, but we were lucky and getting away with it on the JIT path, but the non-JIT one is stricter. This patch does nothing to fix that, instead we sneak in support for fixed patterns starting with "(*NO_JIT)", this disables the PCRE v2 jit with implicit fixed-string matching for testing, see pcre2syntax(3) the syntax. This is technically a change in behavior, but it's so obscure that I figured it was OK. We'd previously consider this an invalid regular expression as regcomp() would die on it, now we feed it to the PCRE v2 fixed-string path. I thought this was better than introducing yet another GIT_TEST_* environment variable. We're also relying on a behavior of PCRE v2 that technically could change, but I think the test coverage is worth dipping our toe into some somewhat undefined behavior.

2019-07-26grep: stop using a custom JIT stack with PCRE v1Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason
Simplify the PCRE v1 code for the same reasons as for the PCRE v2 code in the last commit. Unlike with v2 we actually used the custom stack in v1, but let's use PCRE's built-in 32 KB one instead, since experience with v2 shows that's enough. Most distros are already using v2 as a default, and the underlying sljit code is the same. Unfortunately we can't just pass a NULL to pcre_jit_exec() as with pcre2_jit_match(). Unlike the v2 function it doesn't support that. Instead we need to use the fatter pcre_exec() if we'd like the same behavior. This will make things slightly slower than on the fast-path function, but it's OK since we care less about v1 performance these days since we have and recommend v2. Running a similar performance test as what I ran in fbaceaac47 ("grep: add support for the PCRE v1 JIT API", 2017-05-25) via: GIT_PERF_REPEAT_COUNT=30 GIT_PERF_LARGE_REPO=~/g/linux GIT_PERF_MAKE_OPTS='-j8 USE_LIBPCRE1=Y CFLAGS=-O3 LIBPCREDIR=/home/avar/g/pcre/inst' ./run HEAD~ HEAD p7820-grep-engines.sh Gives us this, just the /perl/ results: Test HEAD~ HEAD --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 7820.3: perl grep 'how.to' 0.19(0.67+0.52) 0.19(0.65+0.52) +0.0% 7820.7: perl grep '^how to' 0.19(0.78+0.44) 0.19(0.72+0.49) +0.0% 7820.11: perl grep '[how] to' 0.39(2.13+0.43) 0.40(2.10+0.46) +2.6% 7820.15: perl grep '(e.t[^ ]*|v.ry) rare' 0.44(2.55+0.37) 0.45(2.47+0.41) +2.3% 7820.19: perl grep 'm(ú|u)lt.b(æ|y)te' 0.23(1.06+0.42) 0.22(1.03+0.43) -4.3% It will also implicitly re-enable UTF-8 validation for PCRE v1. As noted in [1] we now have cases as a result where PCRE v1 is more eager to error out. Subsequent patches will fix that for v2, and I think it's fair to tell v1 users "just upgrade" and not worry about that edge case for v1. 1. https://public-inbox.org/git/CAPUEsphZJ_Uv9o1-yDpjNLA_q-f7gWXz9g1gCY2pYAYN8ri40g@mail.gmail.com/ Signed-off-by: Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason <avarab@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>
2019-07-26grep: stop "using" a custom JIT stack with PCRE v2Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason
As reported in [1] the code I added in 94da9193a6 ("grep: add support for PCRE v2", 2017-06-01) to use a custom JIT stack has never worked. It was incorrectly copy/pasted from code I added in fbaceaac47 ("grep: add support for the PCRE v1 JIT API", 2017-05-25), which did work. Thus our intention of starting with 1 byte of stack at a maximum of 1 MB didn't happen, we'd always use the 32 KB stack provided by PCRE v2's jit_machine_stack_exec()[2]. The reason I allocated a custom stack at all was this advice in pcrejit(3) (same in pcre2jit(3)): "By default, it uses 32KiB on the machine stack. However, some large or complicated patterns need more than this" Since we've haven't had any reports of users running into PCRE2_ERROR_JIT_STACKLIMIT in the wild I think we can safely assume that we can just use the library defaults instead and drop this code. This won't change with the wider use of PCRE v2 in ed0479ce3d ("Merge branch 'ab/no-kwset' into next", 2019-07-15), a fixed string search is not a "large or complicated pattern". For good measure I ran the performance test noted in 94da9193a6, although the command is simpler now due to my 0f50c8e32c ("Makefile: remove the NO_R_TO_GCC_LINKER flag", 2019-05-17): GIT_PERF_REPEAT_COUNT=30 GIT_PERF_LARGE_REPO=~/g/linux GIT_PERF_MAKE_OPTS='-j8 USE_LIBPCRE2=Y CFLAGS=-O3 LIBPCREDIR=/home/avar/g/pcre2/inst' ./run HEAD~ HEAD p7820-grep-engines.sh Just the /perl/ results are: Test HEAD~ HEAD --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 7820.3: perl grep 'how.to' 0.17(0.27+0.65) 0.17(0.24+0.68) +0.0% 7820.7: perl grep '^how to' 0.16(0.23+0.66) 0.16(0.23+0.67) +0.0% 7820.11: perl grep '[how] to' 0.18(0.35+0.62) 0.18(0.33+0.65) +0.0% 7820.15: perl grep '(e.t[^ ]*|v.ry) rare' 0.17(0.45+0.54) 0.17(0.49+0.50) +0.0% 7820.19: perl grep 'm(ú|u)lt.b(æ|y)te' 0.16(0.33+0.58) 0.16(0.29+0.62) +0.0% So, as expected there's no change, and running with valgrind reveals that we have fewer allocations now. As noted in [3] there are known regexes that will fail with the lower stack limit, the way GNU grep fixed it is interesting, although I believe the implementation is overly verbose, they could make PCRE v2 handle that gradual re-allocation, that's what min/max memory is for. So we might end up bringing this back, I'm more inclined to just kick such cases upstairs to PCRE maintainers as a bug, perhaps they'll add some overall "just allocate more then" flag to make this easier. In any case there's no functional change here, we didn't have a custom stack, so let's apply this first, we can always revert it later. 1. https://public-inbox.org/git/20190721194052.15440-1-carenas@gmail.com/ 2. I didn't really intend to start with 1 byte, looking at the PCRE v2 code again what happened is that I cargo-culted some of PCRE v2's own test code which was meant to test re-allocations. It's more sane to start with say 32 KB with a max of 1 MB, as pcre2grep.c does. 3. https://public-inbox.org/git/CAPUEspjj+fG8QDmf=bZXktfpLgkgiu34HTjKLhm-cmEE04FE-A@mail.gmail.com/ Reported-by: Carlo Marcelo Arenas Belón <carenas@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason <avarab@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <gitster@pobox.com>

2019-07-01grep: use PCRE v2 for optimized fixed-string searchÆvar Arnfjörð Bjarmason
Bring back optimized fixed-string search for "grep", this time with PCRE v2 as an optional backend. As noted in [1] with kwset we were slower than PCRE v1 and v2 JIT with the kwset backend, so that optimization was counterproductive. This brings back the optimization for "--fixed-strings", without changing the semantics of having a NUL-byte in patterns. As seen in previous commits in this series we could support it now, but I'd rather just leave that edge-case aside so we don't have one behavior or the other depending what "--fixed-strings" backend we're using. It makes the behavior harder to understand and document, and makes tests for the different backends more painful. This does change the behavior under non-C locales when "log"'s "--encoding" option is used and the heystack/needle in the content/command-line doesn't have a matching encoding. See the recent change in "t4210: skip more command-line encoding tests on MinGW" in this series. I think that's OK. We did nothing sensible before then (just compared raw bytes that had no hope of matching). At least now the user will get some idea why their grep/log never matches in that edge case. I could also support the PCRE v1 backend here, but that would make the code more complex. I'd rather aim for simplicity here and in future changes to the diffcore. We're not going to have someone who absolutely must have faster search, but for whom building PCRE v2 isn't acceptable.

Change "-f <file>" to not support patterns with a NUL-byte in them under --fixed-strings. We'll now only support these under "--perl-regexp" with PCRE v2. A previous change to grep's documentation changed the description of "-f <file>" to be vague enough as to not promise that this would work. By dropping support for this we make it a whole lot easier to move away from the kwset backend, which we'll do in a subsequent change.

2019-07-01grep: make the behavior for NUL-byte in patterns saneÆvar Arnfjörð Bjarmason
The behavior of "grep" when patterns contained a NUL-byte has always been haphazard, and has served the vagaries of the implementation more than anything else. A pattern containing a NUL-byte can only be provided via "-f <file>". Since pickaxe (log search) has no such flag the NUL-byte in patterns has only ever been supported by "grep" (and not "log --grep"). Since 9eceddeec6 ("Use kwset in grep", 2011-08-21) patterns containing "\0" were considered fixed. In 966be95549 ("grep: add tests to fix blind spots with \0 patterns", 2017-05-20) I added tests for this behavior. Change the behavior to do the obvious thing, i.e. don't silently discard a regex pattern and make it implicitly fixed just because they contain a NUL-byte. Instead die if the backend in question can't handle them, e.g. --basic-regexp is combined with such a pattern. This is desired because from a user's point of view it's the obvious thing to do. Whether we support BRE/ERE/Perl syntax is different from whether our implementation is limited by C-strings. These patterns are obscure enough that I think this behavior change is OK, especially since we never documented the old behavior. Doing this also makes it easier to replace the kwset backend with something else, since we'll no longer strictly need it for anything we can't easily use another fixed-string backend for.

2019-06-28grep: don't use PCRE2?_UTF8 with "log --encoding=<non-utf8>"Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason
Fix a bug introduced in 18547aacf5 ("grep/pcre: support utf-8", 2016-06-25) that was missed due to a blindspot in our tests, as discussed in the previous commit. I then blindly copied the same bug in 94da9193a6 ("grep: add support for PCRE v2", 2017-06-01) when adding the PCRE v2 code. We should not tell PCRE that we're processing UTF-8 just because we're dealing with non-ASCII. In the case of e.g. "log --encoding=<...>" under is_utf8_locale() the haystack might be in ISO-8859-1, and the needle might be in a non-UTF-8 encoding. Maybe we should be more strict here and die earlier? Should we also be converting the needle to the encoding in question, and failing if it's not a string that's valid in that encoding? Maybe. But for now matching this as non-UTF8 at least has some hope of producing sensible results, since we know that our default heuristic of assuming the text to be matched is in the user locale encoding isn't true when we've explicitly encoded it to be in a different encoding.

2019-05-28grep: fail if call could output and name is nullEmily Shaffer
grep_source(), which performs much of the work for Git's grep library, allows passing an arbitrary struct grep_source which represents the text which grep_source() should search to match a pattern in the provided struct grep_opt. In most callers, the grep_source::name field is set to an appropriate prefix to print before a colon when a result matches: README:Git is an Open Source project covered by the GNU General One caller, grep_buffer(), leaves the grep_source::name field set to NULL because there isn't enough context to determine an appropriate name for this kind of output line. In practice, this has been fine: the only caller of grep_buffer() is "git log --grep", and that caller sets grep_opt::status_only, which disables output and only checks whether a match exists. But this is brittle: a future caller can call grep_buffer() without grep_opt::status_only set, and as soon as it hits a match, grep_source() will try to print the match and segfault: (null):Git is an Open Source project covered by the GNU General For example, a future caller might want to print all matching lines from commits which match a regex. Futureproof by diagnosing early a use of the API that could trigger that condition, before we know whether the pattern matches: BUG: grep.c:1783: grep call which could print a name requires grep_source.name be non-NULL Aborted This way, the caller's author gets an indication of how to fix the issue - by providing grep_source::name or setting grep_opt::status_only - and they are warned of the potential for a segfault unconditionally, rather than only if there is a match. Noticed while adding such a call to a tutorial on revision walks.
