Bug #11672


Added by akr (Akira Tanaka) about 5 years ago. Updated about 5 years ago.

Target version:
ruby -v:
ruby 2.3.0dev (2015-11-10 trunk 52511) [x86_64-linux]


I found following script behaves different between ruby 2.2.3 and trunk.
Is this difference intentional?

% cat tst.rb   
class C

module R
  refine C do
    def m
      puts :foo

using R

module R
  refine C do
    def m
      puts :bar
% ./ruby -wv tst.rb  
ruby 2.3.0dev (2015-11-10 trunk 52511) [x86_64-linux]
% ruby-2.2.3 -wv tst.rb
ruby 2.2.3p173 (2015-08-18 revision 51636) [x86_64-linux]
tst.rb:17: warning: method redefined; discarding old m
tst.rb:6: warning: previous definition of m was here

I tried git bisect (make bisect).

It seems r51126 causes the problem.

% cat test.rb 
class C

module R
  refine C do
    def m

using R

module R
  refine C do
    def m

exit == :bar

% git bisect start 84694f3d9ba586b5087355f452bdeebaf7a8a77b f0806c4863c4440f9644ef0aea233739269ed45a

    * method.h: introduce rb_callable_method_entry_t to remove
      [Bug #11278], [Bug #11279]
      rb_method_entry_t data belong to modules/classes.
      rb_method_entry_t::owner points defined module or class.
        module M
          def foo; end
      In this case, owner is M.
      rb_callable_method_entry_t data belong to only classes.
      For modules, MRI creates corresponding T_ICLASS internally.
      rb_callable_method_entry_t can also belong to T_ICLASS.
      rb_callable_method_entry_t::defined_class points T_CLASS or
      rb_method_entry_t data for classes (not for modules) are also
      rb_callable_method_entry_t data because it is completely same data.
      In this case, rb_method_entry_t::owner == rb_method_entry_t::defined_class.
      For example, there are classes C and D, and incldues M,
        class C; include M; end
        class D; include M; end
      then, two T_ICLASS objects for C's super class and D's super class
      will be created.
      When is called, then M#foo is searcheed and
      rb_callable_method_t data is used by VM to invoke M#foo.
      rb_method_entry_t data is only one for M#foo.
      However, rb_callable_method_entry_t data are two (and can be more).
      It is proportional to the number of including (and prepending)
      classes (the number of T_ICLASS which point to the module).
      Now, created rb_callable_method_entry_t are collected when
      the original module M was modified. We can think it is a cache.
      We need to select what kind of method entry data is needed.
      To operate definition, then you need to use rb_method_entry_t.
      You can access them by the following functions.
      * rb_method_entry(VALUE klass, ID id);
      * rb_method_entry_with_refinements(VALUE klass, ID id);
      * rb_method_entry_without_refinements(VALUE klass, ID id);
      * rb_resolve_refined_method(VALUE refinements, const rb_method_entry_t *me);
      To invoke methods, then you need to use rb_callable_method_entry_t
      which you can get by the following APIs corresponding to the
      above listed functions.
      * rb_callable_method_entry(VALUE klass, ID id);
      * rb_callable_method_entry_with_refinements(VALUE klass, ID id);
      * rb_callable_method_entry_without_refinements(VALUE klass, ID id);
      * rb_resolve_refined_method_callable(VALUE refinements, const rb_callable_method_entry_t *me);
      VM pushes rb_callable_method_entry_t, so that rb_vm_frame_method_entry()
      returns rb_callable_method_entry_t.
      You can check a super class of current method by
    * method.h: renamed from rb_method_entry_t::klass to
    * internal.h: add rb_classext_struct::callable_m_tbl to cache
      rb_callable_method_entry_t data.
      We need to consider abotu this field again because it is only
      active for T_ICLASS.
    * class.c (method_entry_i): ditto.
    * class.c (rb_define_attr): rb_method_entry() does not takes
    * gc.c (mark_method_entry): mark RCLASS_CALLABLE_M_TBL() for T_ICLASS.
    * cont.c (fiber_init): rb_control_frame_t::klass is removed.
    * proc.c: fix `struct METHOD' data structure because
      rb_callable_method_t has all information.
    * vm_core.h: remove several fields.
      * rb_control_frame_t::klass.
      * rb_block_t::klass.
      And catch up changes.
    * eval.c: catch up changes.
    * gc.c: ditto.
    * insns.def: ditto.
    * vm.c: ditto.
    * vm_args.c: ditto.
    * vm_backtrace.c: ditto.
    * vm_dump.c: ditto.
    * vm_eval.c: ditto.
    * vm_insnhelper.c: ditto.
    * vm_method.c: ditto.

bisect run success

Updated by ko1 (Koichi Sasada) about 5 years ago

  • Status changed from Open to Closed

Applied in changeset r52648.

  • vm_method.c (rb_class_clear_method_cache): should clear all RCLASS_CALLABLE_M_TBLs of all sub-classes (T_ICLASS).

RCLASS_CALLABLE_M_TBL() caches complemented method entries.
It should be cleared when the modules are cleared.
On previous version clears only for direct children.
It is enough for normal modules because corresponding T_ICLASSes
are direct children.

However, refinements create complex data structure. So that
we need to clear all children (and descendants).
[ruby-core:71423] [Bug #11672]

  • vm_method.c (rb_clear_method_cache_by_class): rb_mKernel
    doesn't call rb_class_clear_method_cache, so that
    clear child T_ICLASSes.

  • test/ruby/test_refinement.rb: enable disabled test.
