workaround: gcc v4.8 on 32 bit param. passing bug when -02 opimization used
gcc -O2 v4.8 on 32 bit architecture is causing a bug in parameter passing. It does not happen with -01 nor -O0. The problematic part of the code was strlen use in config.c in the config_def_check fn and the call for _config_def_check_tree in it: <snip> rplen = strlen(rp); if (!_config_def_check_tree(handle, vp, vp + strlen(vp), rp, rp + rplen, CFG_PATH_MAX_LEN - rplen, cn, cmd->cft_def_hash)) ... </snip> If compiled with -O0 (correct): Breakpoint 1, config_def_check (cmd=0x819b050, handle=0x81a04f8) at config/config.c:775 (gdb) p vp $1 = 0x8189ee0 <_cfg_path> "config" (gdb) p strlen(vp) $2 = 6 (gdb) _config_def_check_tree (handle=0x81a04f8, vp=0x8189ee0 <_cfg_path> "config", pvp=0x8189ee6 <_cfg_path+6> "", rp=0xbfffe1e8 "config", prp=0xbfffe1ee "", buf_size=58, root=0x81a2568, ht=0x81a65 48) at config/config.c:680 (gdb) p vp $4 = 0x8189ee0 <_cfg_path> "config" (gdb) p pvp $5 = 0x8189ee6 <_cfg_path+6> "" If compiled with -O2 (incorrect): Breakpoint 1, config_def_check (cmd=cmd@entry=0x8183050, handle=0x81884f8) at config/config.c:775 (gdb) p vp $1 = 0x8172fc0 <_cfg_path> "config" (gdb) p strlen(vp) $2 = 6 (gdb) p vp + strlen(vp) $3 = 0x8172fc6 <_cfg_path+6> "" (gdb) _config_def_check_tree (handle=handle@entry=0x81884f8, pvp=0x8172fc7 <_cfg_path+7> "host_list", rp=rp@entry=0xbffff190 "config", prp=prp@entry=0xbffff196 "", buf_size=buf_size@entry=58, ht=0x 818e548, root=0x818a568, vp=0x8172fc0 <_cfg_path> "config") at config/config.c:674 (gdb) p pvp $4 = 0x8172fc7 <_cfg_path+7> "host_list" The difference is in passing the "pvp" arg for _config_def_check_tree. While in the correct case, the value of _cfg_path+6 is passed (the result of vp + strlen(vp) - see the snippet of the code above), in the incorrect case, this value is increased by 1 to _cfg_path+7, hence totally malforming the string that is being processed. This ends up with incorrect validation check and incorrect warning messages are issued like: "Configuration setting "config/checks" has invalid type. Found integer, expected section." To workaround this issue, remove the "static" qualifier from the "static char _cfg_path[CFG_PATH_MAX_LEN]". This causes the optimalizer to be less aggressive (also shuffling the arg list for _config_def_check_tree call helps).
