Description rsandifo@gcc.gnu.org 2022-01-18 11:12:07 UTC
Compiling the following testcase with -march=armv8.2-a+sve -O2 -Wall:

#include <arm_sve.h>

svuint64_t bar(svbool_t pg, const uint64_t *addr) {
  return svget2(svld2_u64(pg, addr), 0);


foo.c:4:16: warning: using a dangling pointer to an unnamed temporary [-Wdangling-pointer=]
    4 |   return svget2(svld2_u64(pg, addr), 0);
      |          ~~~~~~^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
foo.c:4:16: note: unnamed temporary defined here
    4 |   return svget2(svld2_u64(pg, addr), 0);
      |          ~~~~~~^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is because the code looks only at gassigns when tracking whether
a clobber has been overwritten, so it misses assignments by calls.

This seems to be different from PR104076.

    Add CLOBBER_EOL to mark storage end-of-life clobbers
    This adds a flag to CONSTRUCTOR nodes indicating that for
    clobbers this marks the end-of-life of storage as opposed to
    just ending the lifetime of the object that occupied it.
    The dangling pointer diagnostics uses CLOBBERs but is confused
    by those emitted by the C++ frontend for example which emits
    them for the second purpose at the start of CTORs.  The issue
    is also appearant for aarch64 in PR104092.
    Distinguishing the two cases is also necessary for the PR90348 fix.
    Since I'm going to add another flag I added an enum clobber_flags
    and a defaulted argument to build_clobber plus a convenient way to
    query the enum from the CTOR tree and specify it for gimple_clobber_p.
    Since 'CLOBBER' is already taken and I needed a name for the unspecified
    clobber we have now I used 'CLOBBER_UNDEF'.
