10 years agoRemove PERL_ASYNC_CHECK() from Perl_leave_scope().
Nicholas Clark [Sat, 14 Apr 2012 13:51:33 +0000 (15:51 +0200)]
Remove PERL_ASYNC_CHECK() from Perl_leave_scope().

PERL_ASYNC_CHECK() was added to Perl_leave_scope() as part of commit
f410a2119920dd04, which moved signal dispatch from the runloop to
control flow ops, to mitigate nearly all of the speed cost of safe

The assumption was that scope exit was a safe place to dispatch signals.
However, this is not true, as parts of the regex engine call
leave_scope(), the regex engine stores some state in per-interpreter
variables, and code called within signal handlers can change these

Hence remove the call to PERL_ASYNC_CHECK() from Perl_leave_scope(), and
add it explicitly in the various OPs which were relying on their call to
leave_scope() to dispatch any pending signals. Also add a
PERL_ASYNC_CHECK() to the exit of the runloop, which ensures signals
still dispatch from S_sortcv() and S_sortcv_stacked(), as well as
addressing one of the concerns in the commit message of

    Subtle bugs might remain - there might be constructions that enter
    the runloop (where signals used to be dispatched) but don't contain
    any PERL_ASYNC_CHECK() calls themselves.

Finally, move the PERL_ASYNC_CHECK(); added by that commit to pp_goto to
the end of the function, to be consistent with the positioning of all
other PERL_ASYNC_CHECK() calls - at the beginning or end of OP
functions, hence just before the return to or just after the call from
the runloop, and hence effectively at the same point as the previous
location of PERL_ASYNC_CHECK() in the runloop.

When PERL_PERTURB_KEYS is 0 we will not randomize key order at all. The
chance that keys() changes due to an insert will be the same as in
previous perls, basically only when the bucket size is changed.

When PERL_PERTURB_KEYS is 1 we will randomize keys in a non repeatedable
way. The chance that keys() changes due to an insert will be very high.
This is the most secure and default mode.

When PERL_PERTURB_KEYS is 2 we will randomize keys in a repeatedable way.
Repititive runs of the same program should produce the same output every
time. The chance that keys changes due to an insert will be very high.

This patch also makes PERL_HASH_SEED imply a non-default
PERL_PERTURB_KEYS setting. Setting PERL_HASH_SEED=0 (exactly one 0) implies
PERL_PERTURB_KEYS=0 (hash key randomization disabled), settng PERL_HASH_SEED
to any other value, implies PERL_PERTURB_KEYS=2 (deterministic/repeatable
hash key randomization). Specifying PERL_PERTURB_KEYS explicitly to a
different level overrides this behavior.

Includes changes to allow one to compile out various aspects of the
patch. One can compile such that PERL_PERTURB_KEYS is not respected, or
can compile without hash key traversal randomization at all. Note that
support for these modes is incomplete, and currently a few tests will

Also includes a new subroutine in Hash::Util::hash_traversal_mask()
which can be used to ensure a given hash produces a predictable key
order (assuming the same hash seed is in effect). This sub acts as a
getter and a setter.

NOTE - this patch lacks tests, but I lack tuits to get them done quickly,
so I am pushing this with the hope that others can add them afterwards.

Use PTR2IV() instead of casting a pointer to IV, to avoid warnings.

The cast to IV was added to avoid problems on platforms where pointers are
larger than longs. However, the change instead generates warnings on
platforms where IVs are larger than pointers. Instead, use the PTR2IV()
macro provided by perl.h to make everyone happy.

Also change the type of the variable on that line, because it is cast to
STRLEN the first time it is used, and then passed to a macro that assigns it

Improve the logic in for manually generating token macros.

Without this fixup the build breaks on Win32. Previously it was enabled using
a second regular expression to parse the bison version string. This
effectively duplicates the first regular expression that parses the bison
version string to determine if the version of bison found can be used.

The second regular expression could get missed when changing the first, as
happened with commit f5cf236ddbe8e24e. So refactor the code to extract the
bison version once, and then use this later as a simple numeric comparison.

With this change, we can actually use bison 2.7 to regenerate perly.*
