Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 887927
Examine and fix if necessary Coverity issues in TCG code
Last modified: 2013-06-11 16:07:50 EDT
Description of problem:
Coverity was run against qemu and many potential bugs were
found. The ones in TCG code are not being examined by anyone,
but still may need fixing.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
TCG bug reports to follow ...
Created attachment 665081 [details]
Coverity scan results
Interesting bugs are the ones in tcg/translate.[ch] and target-*/
Was this intended to be filed against RHEL?
IMO the fedora qemu tracker has the smallest audience for this kind of stuff, I'd say either RHEL or upstream qemu tracker is best.
Is there any way we can kick off coverity against current rawhide qemu? It's much closer to the current state of qemu.git

Could be either, I guess. However I copied the Coverity
bug list so it's visible by anyone (see attachment comment 1).

Well I guess we should fix this and feed the patches upstream.

It's possible to run it using the Red Hat site license, but
I can't document that here.
I should add the main reason I wanted this bug was so that
I will get around to fixing the issues (since I'm the
Rich, has there been a coverity run against something more modern that we can forward upstream?
No, unfortunately 1.2.0 is still the latest that Coverity has
been run on. However I will be able to run it on qemu git
at some point (sooner rather than later).
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 19 development cycle.
Changing version to '19'.
(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 19 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 19 End Of Life. Thank you.)
More information and reason for this action is here:
To re-iterate, I don't think there's much value in tracking this in Fedora bugzilla. Those coverity results are public anyways, so if anything we should forward them to qemu-devel or stick them in launchpad where the TCG dev community can take a gander.
