Description Tim Taylor 2012-06-13 13:49:15 EDT
Description of problem:
The qemu-user and qemu-system-* subpackage includes a number of systemtap tapset definitions that get installed into /usr/share/systemtap/tapset.

Every one of these tapset definitions fails to compile because they use systemtap language reserved words as variables (specifically: in, next).

This lots of error messages whenever a systemtap script is compiled.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rpm -qa qemu-user qemu-system\*

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Write the simplest systemtap script possible:
$ cat hello-world.stp 
probe begin
  print ("hello world\n")
  exit ()

2. Try to compile the systemtap script:
$ stap hello-world.stp
Actual results:
$  stap hello-world.stp 
parse error: expected statement
	saw: keyword at /usr/share/systemtap/tapset/qemu-alpha.stp:1139:3
     source:   in = $arg3;
parse error: expected literal string or number
	saw: operator '=' at /usr/share/systemtap/tapset/qemu-alpha.stp:2078:8
     source:   next = $arg1;
2 parse errors.
WARNING: tapset '/usr/share/systemtap/tapset/qemu-alpha.stp' has errors, and will be skipped.

[... Same set of parse errors at the same line numbers for each tapset file that is packaged ...]

Expected results:
$ stap hello-world.stp
hello world

Fixed in upstream QEMU, but hasn't made it into Fedora's QEMU yet

commit 256a721d46a112d8807a488ec0176985c09bbbf1

    tracetool: handle DTrace keywords 'in', 'next', 'self'
    Language keywords cannot be used as argument names.  The DTrace backend
    appends an underscore to the argument name in order to make the argument
    name legal.
    This patch adds 'in', 'next', and 'self' keywords to dtrace.py.
    Also drop the unnecessary argument name lstrip() call.  The
    Arguments.build() method already ensures there is no space around
    argument names.  Furthermore it is misleading to do the lstrip() *after*
    checking against keywords because the keyword check would not match if
    spaces were in the name.
