Description dcb314 2019-06-12 08:50:43 UTC
mesa-19.1.0/src/util/futex.h:82] -> [mesa-19.1.0/src/util/futex.h:76] -> [mesa-19.1.0/src/util/futex.h:85]: (error) Using pointer to local variable 'tmo' that is out of scope.

Source code is

   if (timeout != NULL) {
      const struct _umtx_time tmo = {
         ._timeout = *timeout,
         ._flags = UMTX_ABSTIME,
         ._clockid = CLOCK_MONOTONIC
      uaddr = (void *)(uintptr_t)sizeof(tmo);
      uaddr2 = (void *)&tmo;

   return _umtx_op(addr, UMTX_OP_WAIT_UINT, (uint32_t)value, uaddr, uaddr2) == -1 ? errno : 0;

Indeed, that's a dangling pointer to data that should not exist anymore, good catch!

I just posted an MR with a fix, can you compile-test it for me? I don't have a FreeBSD machine available.

How did you find this btw? The error message doesn't look familiar to me and looking it up doesn't return many results.
I'd love to be able to find these myself :)

    util/futex: fix dangling pointer use

I'm still curious how you found this though ;)

I found this by using a static analysis tool called cppcheck.

I strongly recommend it for all C and C++ code.

Not everything it mentions is worth fixing, but it does
a deeper code analysis than almost all compilers.

I have no FreeBSD machine here either.
