Subject: [PATCH v3] kconfig: avoid an infinite loop in oldconfig/syncconfig
Date: Tue, 12 Sep 2023 17:48:11 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20230912154811.1338390-1-yoann.congal@smile.fr> (raw)

Exit on error when asking for value and reading stdin returns an error
(mainly if it has reached EOF or is closed).

This infinite loop happens in particular for hex/int configs without an
explicit default value.

Previously, this case would loop:
* oldconfig prompts for the value but stdin has reached EOF
* It gets the global default value : an empty string
* This is not a valid hex/int value so it prompts again, hence the
  infinite loop.

This case happens with a configuration like this (a hex config without a
valid default value):
  config TEST_KCONFIG
       hex "Test KConfig"
       # default 0x0

And using:
  make oldconfig < /dev/null

This was discovered when working on Yocto bug[0] on a downstream
kconfig user (U-boot)

v2->v3:
 * Simplify the patch by fusing comments of :
   * Masahiro Yamada : Exit as soon as reading stdin hits an error
   * Randy Dunlap : Display the name of the currently read symbol

v1->v2:
 * Improve coding style
 * Put more info in the commit message
