[AMD Official Use Only - Internal Distribution Only]



Hi Simon,

Thanks for the detailed review.

I was sending the mail in HTML format which is converting tabs to spaces while sending. Now, I am sending in plain text format. It should fix the issue.

I will made this cleanup in the separate patch.

Done. Clang and gcc are not emitting the above three entries as of now. So, I didn't add the support for them.

---
*Handle DW_LLE_base_addressx, DW_LLE_startx_length and DW_LLE_start_length.

Tested by running the testsuite before and after the patch and there is no increase in the number of test cases that fails.
Tested with both -gdwarf-4 and -gdwarf-5 flags. Also tested -gslit-dwarf along with -gdwarf-4 as well as -gdwarf5 flags.


gdb/ChangeLog:
        *dwarf2loc.c (decode_debug_loclists_addresses): Handle
          DW_LLE_base_addressx, DW_LLE_startx_length, DW_LLE_start_length.

This is an effort to support DWARF5 in gdb.



Regards,
Nitika Achra

Hi Nitika,

Thanks, the patch LGTM, with a few formatting comments addressed.

The file in the ChangeLog entry should be relative to the ChangeLog file it will end up in.  Since this will go in gdb/ChangeLog, it should be "dwarf2loc.c", not "gdb/dwarf2loc.c".  Also, it should be wrapped to 80 columns.  So, something like this:

        * dwarf2loc.c (decode_debug_loclists_addresses): Handle
        DW_LLE_base_addressx, DW_LLE_startx_length, DW_LLE_start_length.

Not sure if it's your email client that changed them to spaces, but the lines at this indentation level (there are a few in the patch) should be indented with a tab.

Something I noticed while reviewing, which could be a possible cleanup made in a separate patch if you'd like.  I don't really see why DEBUG_LOC_START_LENGTH exists.  As we return the low and high addresses to the caller, it's no different than DEBUG_LOC_START_END.  And indeed, the callers treat both DEBUG_LOC_START_END and DEBUG_LOC_START_LENGTH the same way.  So I think _LENGTH could be removed.

And since `enum debug_loc_kind` is only used internally in GDB to communicate between functions (it's not used for parsing anything), it doesn't really need to have explicit values for enumerators.  The documentation about the encoding also seems irrelevant to me, since, again, they are not even used for parsing anything.

Did you add them here because you don't intend to add support for them, at least for the moment?  If so, please add a comment, like:

/* Not supported yet.  */

Thanks,

Simon

Thanks.  The best is to use git-send-email, which makes git send the patch by
email directly, in the right format.  It requires a bit of setup, since you
need to specify your SMTP server settings, but it's really worth it.

If you can't use git-send-email for some reason, the second best option is
git-format-patch.  git-format-patch will produce a complete patch, including
the subject and the commit message.  So if you want to send your patch as an
attachment or paste it in an email, please use git-format-patch instead of
git-diff, which just produces the diff, without the commit message.

Finally, if you manually paste your patch in an email, then you need to make
sure the email client doesn't change anything (like break long lines), otherwise
the patch will be corrupted.

Hmm, I don't see the comment in the new version of the patch.
