Use of freed comppad array during clear_yystack()

Message-ID: <20081026231720.34258457@r2d2>

Patch description from the original email :

I tried to make tests pass on a perl built with -DPERL_POISON,
as some tests were dying with segfaults. They all originated
from the same source: clear_yystack() after a compile error. [...]
As far as I can see, after croaking the newly
created CV is destroyed and its pad is undef'd. [...]

This will SvREFCNT_dec PL_comppad and set PL_comppad to NULL.
However, later, in clear_yystack(), when the ops are freed, the
old PL_comppad is restored by PAD_RESTORE_LOCAL, as a reference
is still in ps->comppad. But now the pad AV is already dead.

Normally (i.e. without PERL_POISON), the dead AV will have
AvARRAY(av) set to NULL by av_undef(). So PAD_RESTORE_LOCAL will
actually set PL_curpad to NULL, and thus pad_free() will not
attempt to do anything.

But with PERL_POISON, the storage for AvARRAY(av) (i.e. sv_u)
will be reused for chaining the free SV heads in the arena
(as opposed to SvANY(sv) in case of !PERL_POISON). This means
that PAD_RESTORE_LOCAL will find AvARRAY(av) non-NULL and will
set PL_curpad to that value, finally causing the segfault in

While I think I understand what's going on, I don't have the
slightest clue how to properly fix this. Given that it's not
a problem only under PERL_POISON, but always (as dead SV heads
are being used), I think it should ultimately be fixed.

The only thing I can offer right now is a patch to make it
work with PERL_POISON as good (or as bad) as without by
making PAD_RESTORE_LOCAL explicitly check if the pad passed
in is already dead and refusing to use it if it is.

Fix ExtUtils::Installed failure with -Duserelocatableinc

This patch fixes an issue with ExtUtils::Installed when Perl is compiled with
userelocatableinc. It looks a though the issue is that `%Config` contains
local paths when built with -Duserelocatableinc, some, at least, with a
leading "./". The solution is to use `File::Spec->canonpath()` to clean up the
path before comparing two paths that are otherwise the same. A better solution
might be to use some sort of other utility function that checks that paths are
the same even if they're not spelled the same. I didn't notice such a function
in File::Spec, alas.

Also, I'm not sure what effects this change might have on VMS; it deserves
further testing there.

From the bug report:

When creating a subclass dynamically, and when adding
AUTOLOAD dynamically into the parent class, then that
AUTOLOAD is not seen in the method cache, even after
a call to "mro::method_changed_in('Parent')".

It only appears in the method cache after a call
to mro::invalidate_all_method_caches().

The attached test file demonstrates the problem.

This was detected while trying to solve bug 40159 in DBIx::DataModel.

Configure should sort inc_version_list

forgets to sort the directories according to version number,
so 5.10 sorts later than 5.8.

Specifically, without this patch, you'd get something like:

    inc_version_list='5.8.9 5.8.8 5.10.0/i686-linux 5.10.0'
