Re: Couple of new issues in mainline
Exactly, sorry for the false alarm.
which ultimately makes this kind of problem possible, I'm wondering
whether something went slightly, unexpectedly, wrong with Benjamin's
doxygen changes around the same time, or, more generally, whether we
should tackle the problem in another way... Thanks in advance for any
feedback!Hey Paolo! I noticed this as well.
However, I don't think it is the doxygen patch, as that is now on the
4.2 branch as well, where it had no ABI testing impact. (My testing
pre-checkin also showed no impact.)
I'm hoping that this is some middle-end or optimization tweak that isThat's also my hope, we can well wait a bit and see whether that
ctype<char>::widen will be inlined again (in the meanwhile, I double
checked that marking it always inline indeed removes the problem). Shall
we file a PR for that? Worst case we can tweak the linker script.
currently on-going in the compiler.
Anyway, both from the optimization point of view and the present point
of view (I would call it "abi stability', or something similar),
exploring visibility-inlines-hidded seems a good idea. However, I'm
noticing something strange, as I said already: for example the fact that
the destructors of those standard exception classes are *out of line*,
still end up hidden, not exported from the library, in my experiment.
Can you explain that? I'm still confused. Maybe should we ask Jason?
