This set fixes a number of minor issues with static builds when using
meson, both for linking apps/examples as part of a meson build itself or
when using pkg-config subsequently.

Following this patchset, all DPDK static builds should be linking with
--whole-archive to ensure all lib and driver constructors are included,
and the use of pkg-config for doing static builds is simplified. The
downside is that for correctness we need two .pc files for DPDK rather
than just one.

Bruce Richardson (7):
  build: always link-whole DPDK static libraries
  build: remove unnecessary variable
  devtools/test-meson-builds.sh: add pkg-config static builds
  build: move pkg-config creation to separate file
  build/pkg-config: output driver libs first for static build
  build/pkg-config: improve static linking flags
  build/pkg-config: prevent overlinking

To ensure all constructors are included in static build, we need to pass
the --whole-archive flag when linking, which is used with the
"link_whole" meson option. Since we use link_whole for all libs, we no
longer need to track the lib as part of the static dependency, just the
path to the headers for compiling.

Since all libraries are explicitly linked as part of a build, we no longer
need to track ones that should be always included for linking against apps.

The pkg-config file was tested by building some of the examples using make,
pulling the cflags and ldflags from the pkg-config file for DPDK. However,
this only tested the shared library linkage, and not the static, so this
patch updates it to test both.

Ahead of changes to rework the file, move the pkg-config file generation to
a new directory under buildtools. This allows the meson code to be
separated out from the main meson.build for simplicity, and also allows any
additional scripts for working with the pkg-config files to be placed there
too.

When calling pkg-config --static --libs, pkg-config will always output the
regular libs first, and then the extra libs from libraries.private field,
since the assumption is that those are additional dependencies for building
statically that the .a files depend upon.

However, for DPDK, we only link the driver files for static builds, and
those need to come *before* the regular libraries. To get this result, we
need two pkgconfig files for DPDK, one for the shared libs, and a second
for the static libs and drivers, which depends upon the first. Using a
dependency means that the shared libs are printed only after the
libraries.private field rather than before.

  To: dev; +Cc: thomas, bluca, david.marchand, ktraynor, Bruce Richardson

Rather than setting -Bstatic in the linker flags when doing a static link,
and then having to explicitly set -Bdynamic again afterwards, we can update
the pkg-config file to use -l:libfoo.a syntax to explicitly refer to the
static library in question. Since this syntax is not supported by meson's
pkg-config module directly, we can post-process the .pc files instead to
adjust them.

Once done, we can simplify the examples' makefiles and the docs by removing
the explicit static flag.

Add the --as-needed linker flag to the DPDK library list in the pkg-config
file so as to prevent overlinking. Without this flag, when linking
statically using flags from $(pkg-config --static --libs libdpdk), all DPDK
drivers and libs were statically linked in, but the binary was also
requiring all the shared versions be present to run.

Please could you add the generated command line before/after?

I would like to make sure that the external dependencies are out of
the whole-archive option.

Thanks

I don't understand why telemetry was managed differently.

Because it was never directly called by applications - and so unneeded from
the linkers viewpoint - but still needed to be linked in to allow apps to
support emitting telemetry data. Therefore it was needed to add it
explicitly because it was never in the required dependency list for each
app.

This wasn't needed for make, since all libs were always linked into make
builds. The previous patch in this set changes meson to behave that way
too.

I feel we are doing something wrong.
We should not have two .pc files.
I also know that static linkage is generally badly supported in pkg-config...

Please could you insert the output of pkg-config to help understanding?

Thanks

It looks to be the same workaround I did for ibverbs static linkage :)

I consider "--as-needed" as a workaround here.
The root issue is that pkg-config does not distinguish clearly
shared and static linkage, right?

This sounds like a worthwhile feature request for Meson to me. Would
you be up for opening an RFE on their issue tracker explaining the use
case, please?

A neat trick! Can we document that the new file is an implementation
detail for internal usage, and that it should not be referenced
directly?
I'm even pondering if it would be possible to install it in a private
directory, need to check if there's a way for Requires to specify
prefixes

Sure,

These both come from builds with meson 0.54. I can also check that things

That's fine, it looks good.
Please mention that you move DPDK libs inside but external dependencies
are still outside of whole-archive block.

There is no error, because we work around it. What we do now is that we
list the DPDK libraries in both the Libs and Libs.private sections. Without
that, we'd have the libs first and then the drivers. This doesn't cause any
issues because linking against a .so unnecessarily isn't a problem.
However, it does mean that we require that we put in flags to switch
between dynamic and static linking in the output.

Yes, it's working around a pkgconfig limitation, though also a limitation
in that we don't link against the drivers when we do a shared build.

I'm happy it helped the general case :-)

Yes, I can do so.

I didn't look to implement this in meson myself because it would take so
long to get into a version that we would use as our minimum version. :-(

Yeah, pretty much. Improved static linking support in pkg-config would
really help with all this - and probably make much of this set unnecessary.
Unfortunately, how pkg-config works right now is how it works, and a change
to support what we want would be a fairly major change in functionality.

That would be great, if there was a way to hide it. I also take it from
your feedback that a package needing multiple .pc files is not an issue for
debian packaging?

Yeah that's fair, an issue to put in the radar is fine, and if anyone
has time to implement it then we can remove the workarounds in the
future

Yeah it's fine, we can ship as many as we want - just concerned about
it being used by mistake, but documenting it should be enough

Thank you Bruce!

I was just searching for the same.  My problem was that IF Proxy builds 
were crashing on static builds with meson.  It turned out that the 
culprit is that at the end of rte_eth_iterator_init() there is a call:

	iter->cls = rte_class_find_by_name("eth");

which was failing (because constructor registering eth class was not 
being called).

This patch solves this issue.

This set fixes a number of minor issues with static builds when using
meson, both for linking apps/examples as part of a meson build itself or
when using pkg-config subsequently.

Following this patchset, all DPDK static builds should be linking with
--whole-archive to ensure all lib and driver constructors are included,
and the use of pkg-config for doing static builds is simplified. The
downside is that for correctness we need two .pc files for DPDK rather
than just one.

v2: improved log messages for a number of patches, and clearly marked
    internal-only pkg-config file as such

Bruce Richardson (7):
  build: always link-whole DPDK static libraries
  build: remove unnecessary variable

To ensure all constructors are included in static build, we need to pass
the --whole-archive flag when linking, which is used with the
"link_whole" meson option. Since we use link_whole for all libs, we no
longer need to track the lib as part of the static dependency, just the
path to the headers for compiling.

After this patch is applied, all DPDK .a files are inside
--whole-archive/--no-whole-archive flags, but external dependencies and
shared libs being linked against remain outside.

Since all libraries are explicitly linked as part of a build, we no longer
need to track ones that should be always included for linking against apps.

Previously telemetry was special-cased for linking as it was not directly
needed by the linker when linking the apps, since they never called into it
directly. This meant that it could be forgotten when specifying the app
dependencies, and so the telemetry support would not work. This
special-casing was never needed for make as it always linked in all
libraries, as meson does now.

The pkg-config file was tested by building some of the examples using make,
pulling the cflags and ldflags from the pkg-config file for DPDK. However,
this only tested the shared library linkage, and not the static, so this
patch updates it to test both.

Ahead of changes to rework the file, move the pkg-config file generation to
a new directory under buildtools. This allows the meson code to be
separated out from the main meson.build for simplicity, and also allows any
additional scripts for working with the pkg-config files to be placed there
too.

When calling pkg-config --static --libs, pkg-config will always output the
regular libs first, and then the extra libs from libraries.private field,
since the assumption is that those are additional dependencies for building
statically that the .a files depend upon.

However, for DPDK, we only link the driver files for static builds, and
those need to come *before* the regular libraries. To get this result, we
need two pkgconfig files for DPDK, one for the shared libs, and a second
for the static libs and drivers, which depends upon the first. Using a
dependency means that the shared libs are printed only after the
libraries.private field rather than before.

Without this patch, the linking works in DPDK because in all cases we
specify the libraries after the drivers in the Libs.private line, ensuring
that the references to the libs from the drivers can be resolved. The
current output is therefore of the form, "(shared)libs, drivers,
(static)libs", while after this patch the output is, "drivers,
(static)libs, (shared)libs". The former case will not work if we use the
--whole-archive flag on the static libs as it will lead to duplicate
definitions due to some references having been previously resolved from the
shared libraries. By ensuring the shared libraries come last in the link
link, this issue does not occur, as duplicate references when linking the
shared libs will be ignored.

Rather than setting -Bstatic in the linker flags when doing a static link,
and then having to explicitly set -Bdynamic again afterwards, we can update
the pkg-config file to use -l:libfoo.a syntax to explicitly refer to the
static library in question. Since this syntax is not supported by meson's
pkg-config module directly, we can post-process the .pc files instead to
adjust them.

Once done, we can simplify the examples' makefiles and the docs by removing
the explicit static flag.

Add the --as-needed linker flag to the DPDK library list in the pkg-config
file so as to prevent overlinking. Without this flag, when linking
statically using flags from $(pkg-config --static --libs libdpdk), all DPDK
drivers and libs were statically linked in, but the binary was also
requiring all the shared versions be present to run.

The real root-cause of this issue is that the DPDK libraries need to be
duplicated in the linker command when doing static linking, due to the
behaviour of pkg-config, but since that behaviour cannot be easily changed,
this is a simple workaround to avoid problems.

V2: expand commit log to explain that pkg-config behaviour of part of the
problem.

This series allows OVS to consume the DPDK libraries appropriately (static and shared) and simplifies the build. 
When building OVS with DPDK, without this patch, the linker would always pick the shared libraries over static even after specifying the -Bstatic flag. 
With this patch, no such behavior is observed. So, it would be very helpful for the OVS community if this patch is merged in DPDK.

I would also ask this series to be back ported to 19.11 as OVS can immediately consume it on the latest master instead of waiting on the next DPDK release i.e 20.11

This set fixes a number of minor issues with static builds when using
meson, both for linking apps/examples as part of a meson build itself or
when using pkg-config subsequently.

Following this patchset, all DPDK static builds should be linking with
--whole-archive to ensure all lib and driver constructors are included,
and the use of pkg-config for doing static builds is simplified. The
downside is that for correctness we need two .pc files for DPDK rather
than just one.

v3: rebased to latest on main branch

v2: improved log messages for a number of patches, and clearly marked
    internal-only pkg-config file as such

Bruce Richardson (7):
  build: always link-whole DPDK static libraries
  build: remove unnecessary variable

To ensure all constructors are included in static build, we need to pass
the --whole-archive flag when linking, which is used with the
"link_whole" meson option. Since we use link_whole for all libs, we no
longer need to track the lib as part of the static dependency, just the
path to the headers for compiling.

After this patch is applied, all DPDK .a files are inside
--whole-archive/--no-whole-archive flags, but external dependencies and
shared libs being linked against remain outside.

Since all libraries are explicitly linked as part of a build, we no longer
need to track ones that should be always included for linking against apps.

Previously telemetry was special-cased for linking as it was not directly
needed by the linker when linking the apps, since they never called into it
directly. This meant that it could be forgotten when specifying the app
dependencies, and so the telemetry support would not work. This
special-casing was never needed for make as it always linked in all
libraries, as meson does now.

The pkg-config file was tested by building some of the examples using make,
pulling the cflags and ldflags from the pkg-config file for DPDK. However,
this only tested the shared library linkage, and not the static, so this
patch updates it to test both.

Ahead of changes to rework the file, move the pkg-config file generation to
a new directory under buildtools. This allows the meson code to be
separated out from the main meson.build for simplicity, and also allows any
additional scripts for working with the pkg-config files to be placed there
too.

When calling pkg-config --static --libs, pkg-config will always output the
regular libs first, and then the extra libs from libraries.private field,
since the assumption is that those are additional dependencies for building
statically that the .a files depend upon.

However, for DPDK, we only link the driver files for static builds, and
those need to come *before* the regular libraries. To get this result, we
need two pkgconfig files for DPDK, one for the shared libs, and a second
for the static libs and drivers, which depends upon the first. Using a
dependency means that the shared libs are printed only after the
libraries.private field rather than before.

Without this patch, the linking works in DPDK because in all cases we
specify the libraries after the drivers in the Libs.private line, ensuring
that the references to the libs from the drivers can be resolved. The
current output is therefore of the form, "(shared)libs, drivers,
(static)libs", while after this patch the output is, "drivers,
(static)libs, (shared)libs". The former case will not work if we use the
--whole-archive flag on the static libs as it will lead to duplicate
definitions due to some references having been previously resolved from the
shared libraries. By ensuring the shared libraries come last in the link
link, this issue does not occur, as duplicate references when linking the
shared libs will be ignored.

Rather than setting -Bstatic in the linker flags when doing a static link,
and then having to explicitly set -Bdynamic again afterwards, we can update
the pkg-config file to use -l:libfoo.a syntax to explicitly refer to the
static library in question. Since this syntax is not supported by meson's
pkg-config module directly, we can post-process the .pc files instead to
adjust them.

Once done, we can simplify the examples' makefiles and the docs by removing
the explicit static flag.

Add the --as-needed linker flag to the DPDK library list in the pkg-config
file so as to prevent overlinking. Without this flag, when linking
statically using flags from $(pkg-config --static --libs libdpdk), all DPDK
drivers and libs were statically linked in, but the binary was also
requiring all the shared versions be present to run.

The real root-cause of this issue is that the DPDK libraries need to be
duplicated in the linker command when doing static linking, due to the
behaviour of pkg-config, but since that behaviour cannot be easily changed,
this is a simple workaround to avoid problems.

+1, if this would be possible to apply to 19.11 as a backport it would enable OVS to move quicker and update the OVS Travis as well as docs and build scripts rather than waiting for DPDK 20.11. Sunil has already been working on these changes I believe.

Alternatively if it cant be backported to 19.11, then possibly we could look at merging Sunil's patches to the dpdk-latest branch in OVS once makefiles are deprecated in DPDK master?

Given whole libs are linked, is it really needed to have drivers first?

It deserves to give a more detailed explanation here.

My fault for poor word ordering. Should be rewritten as "link the driver
files only for static builds".

If we are considering only static libs, then I suspect not, but to avoid
having the shared libraries also linked into the static binaries they
definitely need to come last, so they can be linked with as-needed i.e.
skipped by the linker.

It will depend partially upon other linker flags used before the pkgconfig
insert. We would be relying upon the user integrating this to explicitly
pass in -Bstatic flag before putting the pkgconfig flags output. With the
current config, we can't add that ourselves because to go first it would
have to go (ironically) in the shared lib part of the pkg-config file. By
splitting things into two, it allows the static libs to come before the
shared ones, which gives us the ability to control things far better.

It's already explained in commit log for patch 5 and in the code comments
added in patch 5 also, so I didn't think it was necessary again. However
can add in a V4, if needed.

I think the special case for librte_node may be removed.
I will propose a separate patch for this case.

Should "dependencies" be clarified as "external" or "non-DPDK"
dependencies?

This is not obvious. In order to avoid messing it up in future,
I suggest this longer reword:

# When calling pkg-config --static --libs, pkg-config will always output the
# regular libs first, and then the extra libs from Libs.private field,
# since the assumption is that those are additional dependencies for building
# statically that the .a files depend upon. The output order of .pc fields is:
#   Cflags   Libs   Libs.private   Requires   Requires.private
# The fields Requires* are for package names.
# The flags of the DPDK libraries must be defined in Libs* fields.
# However, the DPDK drivers are linked only in static builds (Libs.private),
# and those need to come *before* the regular libraries (Libs field).
# This requirement is satisfied by moving the regular libs in a separate file
# included in the field Requires (after Libs.private).
# Another requirement is to allow linking dependencies as shared libraries,
# while linking static DPDK libraries and drivers. It is satisfied by
# listing the static files in Libs.private with the explicit syntax -l:libfoo.a.
# As a consequence, the regular DPDK libraries are already listed as static
# in the field Libs.private. The second occurences of DPDK libraries,
# included from Requires and used for shared library linkage case,
# are skipped in the case of static linkage thanks to the flag --as-needed.

# Link order summary:
#   libdpdk.Libs.private: whole-archive(static drivers/libs), drivers deps flags
#   libdpdk.Requires: libdpdk-libs package
#   libdpdk-libs.Libs: as-needed(shared libs)
#   libdpdk-libs.Libs.private: libs deps flags
#   libdpdk.pc.Requires.private: deps packages


If you agree, I could change this comment while merging.
I would add my Signed-off ;)

Yes:

This seems generally ok, but probably should just be added as part of patch
#7 when all parts of the above have been applied.

Couple of comments:
* One small nit is that cflags are not output as part of the --libs call, so
you can remove them from the list on line 5 of the comment. They aren't
really relevant to this comment/essay.

* I find the link-order summary to actually be more confusing than helpful.
I think the text block is explanatory enough. It just confuses things
introducing the extra details of what goes in the requires-private or
libs-private of the libdpdk.pc file. That's just regular stuff, unrelated
to the changes or to DPDK special-case of needing private libs first.

The intent of this summary was to help navigating
for future changes in this area.
Personnaly it helps me, but it is maybe more a developer note

I can remove it.

Ok thanks. If you are happy to make these comment changes on apply, please
feel free to do so, thanks.

[BTW: I think the shebang line on the new python script needs a "python"

Why waiting for makefiles to be deprecated?
These patches are merged in latest DPDK, so you can proceed in OVS.
