Subject: [PATCH 1/2] x86/tools/relocs: Fix non-POSIX regexp
Date: Thu,  8 Jul 2021 10:57:09 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <81c6de380d932bfb94d96fb70459dd47afd6ed5d.1625734629.git.hns@goldelico.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <cover.1625734629.git.hns@goldelico.com>

Trying to run a cross-compiled x86 relocs tool on a BSD based
HOSTCC leads to errors like

  VOFFSET arch/x86/boot/compressed/../voffset.h - due to: vmlinux
  CC      arch/x86/boot/compressed/misc.o - due to: arch/x86/boot/compressed/../voffset.h
  OBJCOPY arch/x86/boot/compressed/vmlinux.bin - due to: vmlinux
  RELOCS  arch/x86/boot/compressed/vmlinux.relocs - due to: vmlinux
empty (sub)expressionarch/x86/boot/compressed/Makefile:118: recipe for target 'arch/x86/boot/compressed/vmlinux.relocs' failed
make[3]: *** [arch/x86/boot/compressed/vmlinux.relocs] Error 1

It turns out that relocs.c uses patterns like

	"something(|_end)"

This is not valid syntax or gives undefined results according
to POSIX 9.5.3 ERE Grammar

	https://pubs.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/9699919799/basedefs/V1_chap09.html

It seems to be silently accepted by the Linux regexp() implementation
while a BSD host complains.

Such patterns can be replaced by a transformation like

	"(|p1|p2)" -> "(p1|p2)?"
