qapi: Don't create useless directory qapi-generated (2018-03-01 19:16:40
This produces a huge pile of warnings from my OSX toolchain.
When running ar on libqemuutil.a:
file: libqemuutil.a(qapi-types.o) has no symbols
Part of this change was moving the location of the generated
./qapi-types.c to qapi/qapi-types.c. Could it be that you are doing an
incremental build, rather than a clean build, and the compiler is
picking up the stale version of the file rather than its new location?
file: libqemuutil.a(qapi-visit.o) has no symbols
file: libqemuutil.a(qapi-events.o) has no symbols
Here, we renamed ./qapi-event.c to qapi/qapi-events.c, so the fact that
the compiler named the right file is promising, but the fact that the
file has no symbols is not good.
I think these are related -- nm complains once for every .o file in the archive
that doesn't have any symbols in it.
I had a look at the autogenerated .c files on my Linux build, and they
seem to consist only of a bunch of #includes. Why are we not generating
any code here?
I don't have easy access to an OSX machine. What version of python is
in use? My first thought was that it could be a subtle bug due to
differences in the python engine running the qapi generators.
But I just checked, and at least for qapi/qapi-types.c, the generated
file IS just a list of includes; and in fact, it looks like all of the
mentioned files are in that boat (for example, qapi/transaction.json has
no events, so qapi/qapi-events-transaction.c being empty makes sense).
I know that some compilers are picky about that. Is a typedef enough to
cause the compiler to have something to compile without warnings? If
so, does this patch solve things? If it does, I'll squash it in the
right place within the series and submit a v3 pull request.
