This series depends on the last set of coccicheck enhancements which
add parmap support and indexing heuristics.

Coccinelle SmPL files may often require advanced grammar techniques not
available in older versions of Coccinelle. We can use --parse-cocci and
bail if a file does not parse, however this doesn't tell us anything about
requirements. An alternative approach is to specifically do a check for
a version of coccinelle.

Since checking for versions can be generic we can just write a python
library to do these sorts of checks for us, this allows us to provide
a generic kernel library for version checks for any binary. This adds
that and then makes use of it as an example within a coccinelle SmPL
file which require a later version of coccinelle.

Luis R. Rodriguez (4):
  coccicheck: propagate error and stop processing after first error
  scripts: add reqs python library
  coccicheck: enable use of the kernel's python library
  scripts/coccinelle: require coccinelle >= 1.0.4 on
    device_node_continue.cocci

Propagate back in the shell Coccinelle's error. Also stop
processing if an error has occured. This lets us handle some
errors in coccinelle cocci files and if they bail out we should
inspect the errors. This will be more useful later to help annotate
coccinelle version dependency requirements.

This library can be used in other python scripts to require
specific binary version requirements. It will be used first
with coccinelle's python bindings to enable coccinelle SmPL
files to specify version requirements per cocci file if it
has any.

Make use of the new kernel python requirements library to be able to
specify coccinelle binary version requirements. The cocci file
device_node_continue.cocci requires at least coccinelle 1.0.4.

This doesn't look very appealing to me.  Shouldn't Coccinelle handle this 
itself?

This is going to silently break as soon as we have a version number with
e.g. a time stamp embedded. And there is actually no need to convert the
version string to an integer. You can convert them to arrays of
components and compare the components one by one.

The first assignment to DIR already sets the desired path.

How about the following, since Coccinelle knows what its version is?
This could of course be implemented in python as well.

Would you like to fix a typo here?

Does such a name selection need also further considerations?

Oh I agree, however what options do we have at the moment instead of an odd
parse error complaint ? This lets one annotate version requirements and is
backward compatible.

Anything to *only* get the version instead of a long list is nice, right now
spatch --version spits out:

spatch version 1.0.5 compiled with OCaml version 4.02.3
Flags passed to the configure script: [none]
Python scripting support: yes
Syntax of regular expresssions: PCRE

The Python library just parses the 3rd item at the top so it can extract
the version. But surely if spatch --version-only was available we'd use
that instead a well.

Other than this though how can we require coccinelle version checks per
SmPL file cleanly and also what should we do to make it backward compatible
with older versions of coccinelle?

I'm not sure that being backward compatible with older versions of
Coccinelle is worth adding new libraries to the Linux kernel, and adding
unpleasant python code to semantic patches.

The above ocaml code just produces eg 1.0.5 or 1.0.5-dirty.  I could drop
the -dirty at the coccilib level, if that seems desirable.

Well this is adhering to a linux_version_cmp type, surely we can adjust
it with alternatives. It just happens that with the common stuff this
suffices.

Do you have a specific string in mind I can use to test against?

You can, however weight is used to as a generic formula to determine
in one shot if you have a release >= than what is required. Its inspired
by how KERNEL_VERSION() is used:

#define KERNEL_VERSION(a,b,c) (((a) << 16) + ((b) << 8) + (c))

Are there risks that any more fine-grained checks will be needed for
special functionality?

True. I'm more than happy to not have to add this crap.

This is when spatch --cocci_version is passed ?

Its still unclear how we can require in a clean way coccinelle version
requirements in SmPL patches with this. Can you clarify?

If we embrace this or assume we'll get this in the next release we'll have
to just bump the kernel's coccinelle requirement recommendation, which I think
is far due anyway.

Perhaps it wasn't clear enough from the above nroff and ocaml code.  I
added a function Coccilib.version() that returns eg either 1.0.5 or
1.0.5-dirty.  Such a function could be implemented for python as well.

Test the string that it returns and exit.  Like you are doing, but no need
for adding new libraries to the kernel.

Yes.

Ah then that's indeed welcome, however another function would be best too:

Coccilib.version_reqs() which lets us say what the requirement is and it
would return true or false, false when the req is not met.

Great. Then I'm all for dropping this python jüjü crap.

I'm not so fond of this.  It seems like a very specific use case.

I really think this should be managed by coccicheck, in the same way as
the options.

Perhaps.

> the options.

OK if its up to coccicheck -- we'll need a solution there. I'd prefer to use a
generic library like reqs there and just have the check for the maximum
requirement there.

Michal do you have any preference ?

FWIW I had originally written the reqs library for for rel-html [0] which
enables arbitrary projects to make a shiny HTLM5 release project based on a
naked release page provided, the inferring of release needs some generic
heuristics on release matching (in the future the simpler approach is
to have a git tree have two PGP signatures, one for signed releases, and
another for deprecating release, then an alternative smarter heuristic
would be to only look for signed tags of currently supported releases),
the Linux kernel's strategy on versioning computation seemed the way to go.
I was surprised no standard library supported it properly. This library is
also used on backports not only for coccinell requirements but for other
generic binary requirements.

We can bash it out.. however this seems like it could be generally useful
for other tools we have in the kernel.

You can have a look at the git history of scripts/ld-version.sh.

Yes, the kernel interface provides comparisons using the preprocessor
arithmetic, so it needs to convert the version strings to integers. But
you are providing methods to compare the versions and what happens in
these methods stays in these methods :).

Will use that instead. The SmPL patch can then have:

// Requires: 1.0.5

This ignores the -dirty stuff.
