Re: [HACKERS] object_classes array is broken, again

2015-07-20 Thread Alvaro Herrera
Any opinions on this idea?  I don't like it all that much, but it's
plenty effective.

Re: [HACKERS] object_classes array is broken, again

 The transforms patch seems to have forgotten to add

 forgot to add PolicyRelationId in the same place.
 
 Fixing this is easy, but ISTM that we need to insert some sort of a
 guard to prevent people from continuing to forget this, because it's
 apparently quite easy to do.  Perhaps add_object_address should
 Assert(OidIsValid(object_classes[oclass])),

The problem is that there aren't enough callers of add_object_address:
there are many indexes of that array that aren't ever accessed and so
it's not obvious when the array is broken.  If we were to put
OCLASS_CLASS at the end instead of at the beginning, that would fix the
problem by making it immediately obvious when things get broken this
way, because the value used in the most common case would shift around
every time we add another value.  (Of course, we'd have to instruct
people to not add new members after the pg_class entry.)

I just tried this, and it's a bit nasty: while it does causes the tests
to fail, it's not at all obvious that there's a connection between the
failure and object_classes[].  I think we can solve that by adding a
comment to ObjectClass.  Here's the first hunk in the large regression
failure:

someplace checking that OidIsValid(object_classes[MAX_OCLASS - 1])?


I tried doing this and I'm getting a static_assert expression is not an 
integral constant expression error, even when I reduce it to a simple 
constant comparison. Maybe I'm just doing something dumb...


If I replace the StaticAssert with 
Assert(OidIsValid(object_classes[MAX_OCLASS - 1])) it works find and 
initdb will fail if that assert trips.


I've attached the broken StaticAssert version. Also added a warning 
comment to the enum.
