[Qemu-devel] [PATCH v2] xics_kvm: fix a build break
Posted by Cédric Le Goater, 1 week ago
On CentOS 7.5, gcc-4.8.5-28.el7_5.1.ppc64le fails to build QEMU due to :

  hw/intc/xics_kvm.c: In function ‘ics_set_kvm_state’:
  hw/intc/xics_kvm.c:281:13: error: ‘ret’ may be used uninitialized in this
    function [-Werror=maybe-uninitialized]
             return ret;

Fix the breakage and also remove the extra error reporting as
kvm_device_access() already provides a substantial error message.

 Greg, can you please test ? RHEL7.5 does not catch the issue with the
 same compiler level :/ I don't understand why.

This fixes the build breakage for me. Now this should really be squashed
into your original patch to preserve bisect on master.

Just one remark:

This would change the error message from:

Unable to retrieve KVM interrupt controller state for IRQ 4096: Invalid argument

to

KVM_GET_DEVICE_ATTR failed: Group 1 attr 0x0000000000001000: Invalid argument

I find it a bit cryptic, and we loose both the IRQ number and direct indication
that it is related to XICS on KVM. That's why I had suggested to print both with
error_reportf_err().

Since this would result in a very long line, alternatively, you can
keep the current error message, using -ret instead of errno, and call
error_free(local_err).

After some analysis, you need to configure with '--enable-debug' to reproduce 
the breakage. '--enable-debug' removes -O2. 

With -O2, the compiler doesn't catch the error. It looks very much like a gcc 
issue to me.

Thanks,

C.

Applied to ppc-for-3.0, thanks.
