D12336: Replace several Q_ASSERTs with proper checks

This revision is now accepted and ready to land.


  I am very much in favour of this change.
  
  In fact, we had this discussion already a long time ago on the mailing list, 
namely that baloo has (had?) zero error handling and simply assuming that 
everything works by adding some Q_ASSERTS.
  
  @bruns You are working on this code for quite a time now. I trust you know 
very much what you are doing much more than possibly anyone else. I know that 
you would like to get a better review, but having a review open for 5+ months 
clearly shows we have an issue elsewhere.
  
  Please proceed and commit - I am taking the liberty to give a +2: If there 
are other issues, the these can still be fixed in followup commits.

  **Silently** - it does not crash, garbage data ends up in the database for 
(mostly) unknown reasons.
  
  Only known reason for zero IDs are races due to renames and similar, where 
e.g. a file is added with some path, and the parent does not exist microseconds 
later (at least not under the previous name).

You gain no information if you crash here. Not the code is wrong, but the 
processed data.

Most importantly, when somebody runs this code, compiled without DEBUG, we will 
run into more and more silent corruption.

As soon as baloo is in a state where it is selfhealing, adding logging becomes 
an option, currently it is not.

Shouldn't asserts help to find where the library is being misused?

This may be accessed quite frequently, so we would get a lot of warnings, 
spamming the journal, and slowing down the system.

A backtrace is useless here, as the code processes whatever it finds in the 
database. The interesting part is how the bad data ended up in the db.

Doing the checks here avoids spreading any existing corruption.

The long term solution is to:

1. Find the bugs leading to the DB corruption
2. Run lowlevel and highlevel sanity checks on existing databases

Both are on my TODO list, but this will take some time.

  If it was silently corrupting the DB maybe the right solution would have been 
to integrate baloo properly with KCrash.
  Like @sitter did in https://phabricator.kde.org/D15573.

Would it make sense to include a warning then? If it's a wrong input, we'll 
need ways to debug it now that it won't be giving a backtrace.

Didn't you mean `id`?

Put `docId` check first for consistency

REVISION SUMMARY
  The code has some preconditions on supplied values when interacting
  with the DB. Instead of silently corrupting the DB with bogus values
  when using non-debug builds, check any provided arguments.
