Hello,

I have constructed the following small SmPL script.


@duplicated_code@
identifier work;
statement s1, s2;
type T;
@@
 T work(...)
 {
 ... when any
*if (...)
*{
    ... when any
*   s1
*   s2
*}
 ... when any
*if (...)

 }

Now I wonder again why the first two diff hunks are presented by this
source code search approach. It seems that the hits for the functions
“gbe_reset_mod_stats” and “gbe_set_rx_mode” are false positives
(because only one if statement is marked there).

The last diff hunk points an implementation detail out which is discussed
for the update suggestion “ethernet: ti: eliminate a bit of duplicate code
in gbe_probe()”.

https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/1554864935-8299-1-git-send-email-wen.yang99@zte.com.cn/

But it shows also source code places where the SmPL specification is
too generic so far.


Another SmPL script variant presents also a result for additional considerations.

Such source code structures are actually shown for the first two diff hunks.
Will any further adjustments be needed to take this aspect better into account
for the presented analysis approach?

I find this information questionable.

* How should source code search specifications from different places match here?

* Where is the knowledge still incomplete for the desired software behaviour?

I suggest to improve this clarification by additional case distinctions.


> You mean that you want results where both matched ifs are actually the same,

I suggest also to adjust this interpretation.

* You are right that such a special use case is shown by the update suggestion
  “ethernet: ti: eliminate a bit of duplicate code in gbe_probe()”.

Duplicate statements can occur also there.

We have got a different understanding for the desired requirements.

I assume that this issue would need another communication approach.

It seems that there is another communication difficulty involved.

Your feedback indicated concerns for the handling of loops
in the shown source code search results, didn't it?


> There are control flow paths that cause ... to connect things.

I guess that these “connections” need further clarifications.

Should two search specifications (with SmPL ellipses) between them
be kept separate for the desired diff output?

Markus

I don't understand any of your answers precisely.

If you have a pattern like

AAA
...
BBB

The AAA and BBB might match the same code if there is a possible flow of
execution from the match of AAA to itself.

I hope that we can come closer again to a better understanding

I agree to this information in principle.
But I imagine that this source code should be found
at different positions.

> of AAA to itself.

I am curious on the circumstances when such details
would be really relevant.

No there is no such constraint.

Typically when there is a loop or goto.  But there is no special handling
of either construct.

My software expectations might be different from your view here.

I find such a case distinction interesting.

Does this information contain a contradiction?

I am still curious if it can be achieved that two statements
(with a SmPL ellipsis between them) will be found only at different positions.

How should be excluded that two generic search specifications
will be merged?

Thanks for this suggestion.

It might take another while to take such an “explanation”
better into account.

Does this feedback indicate any background information
where another addition would be helpful also in the manual
for the semantic patch language?

Your impression can be appropriate here.

I suggest to take another look at the provided information.

I have extended the analysis approach like the following.


@find@
identifier work;
position p1, p2;
statement s1, s2;
type T;
@@
 T work(...)
 {
 ... when any
 if@p1 (...)
 {

Now I stumble on another error message.


elfring@Sonne:~/Projekte/Coccinelle/janitor> spatch --parse-cocci show_same_statements7.cocci
…
Variable find.p2 in duplicated_code cannot be used as both a position and a constraint



By the way:
Will it matter that the determined source code positions are not only different
but also that one place should be before the other?

Markus

I think that you have to declare find.p1 and find.p2 on a subsequent line.

I have observed the same error message then.


I have adjusted the SmPL code also in the following way.

@duplicated_code@
identifier work;
position find.p1, find.p2;
position pos != find.p2;
statement s1, s2;
type T;
@@
…


elfring@Sonne:~/Projekte/Coccinelle/janitor> spatch --parse-cocci show_same_statements7x.cocci
…
meta: parse error:
  File "show_same_statements7x.cocci", line 29, column 21, charpos = 315
  around = 'p2',
  whole content = position pos != find.p2;


How will the software situation evolve further?

Regards,
Markus

I suggest to take another look also at my feedback.

Yes, too.

I tried three different orderings out for these position variables
in the meantime.

Will the implementation be fixed for all affected software components anyhow?

I am still curious then under which circumstances this software will be corrected.
