In order to better support PPC and Windows,
their compilation is tested on Linux with Meson
with the script test-meson-builds.sh,
supposed to be called in every CI labs.

Thomas Monjalon (4):
  devtools: shrink cross-compilation test definition
  devtools: allow non-standard toolchain in meson test
  devtools: add ppc64 in meson build test
  devtools: add Windows cross-build test with MinGW

Each cross-compilation case needs to define the target compiler
and the meson cross file.
Given the compiler is already defined in the cross file,
the latter is enough.

The function "build" is changed to accept a cross file alternatively
to the compiler name. In the case of a file (detected if readable),
the compiler is extracted with sed and tr, and the option --cross-file
is automatically added.

If a compiler is not found in $PATH, the compilation test is skipped.
In some cases, the compiler could be found after extending $PATH
in an environment configuration script (called by load-devel-config).

The decision to skip is deferred to a later stage, after loading the
configuration script.

In such case, the variable DPDK_TARGET, used by the configuration script
as input, is the compiler name.

The Meson cross file is renamed from meson_mingw.txt to cross-mingw,
and is added to test-meson-builds.sh.

The only example supported on Windows so far is "helloworld",
that's why the default list of examples is overriden.

There is a warning with MinGW on Linux:

In file included from lib/librte_eal/include/rte_eal.h:15,
                 from lib/librte_eal/common/eal_common_options.c:26:
lib/librte_eal/common/eal_common_options.c:
	In function ‘eal_adjust_config’:
lib/librte_eal/windows/include/sched.h:63:55: error:
	‘default_set._bits[1]’ may be used uninitialized in this function [-Werror=maybe-uninitialized]
   63 |   (dst)->_bits[_i] = (src1)->_bits[_i] & (src2)->_bits[_i]; \
      |                                                       ^


% x86_64-w64-mingw32-gcc --version
x86_64-w64-mingw32-gcc (GCC) 10.1.0


It looks to be a false positive, but we need to find a way to remove
the warning with a code change.

This workaround in lib/librte_eal/common/eal_common_options.c
makes 200% sure the default_set is initialized:

-       if (pthread_getaffinity_np(pthread_self(), sizeof(rte_cpuset_t),
-                               &default_set))
-               CPU_ZERO(&default_set);
-
+       CPU_ZERO(&default_set);
+       pthread_getaffinity_np(pthread_self(),
+                       sizeof default_set, &default_set);

Doesn't look like a false-positive to me. That's where it's been spotted
and explained before:

	https://mails.dpdk.org/archives/dev/2020-May/168634.html

And this series eliminates it along with other improvements:

I see.
So the fix must be explained (and probably a separate patch).

The entire script file is poorly structured for multi-architecture 
builds.  The script fails on PPC64LE even before your changes:

------------------------------------
# shared and static linked builds with gcc and clang
for c in gcc clang ; do
        command -v $c >/dev/null 2>&1 || continue
        for s in static shared ; do
                export CC="$CCACHE $c"
                build build-$c-$s $c --default-library=$s
                unset CC
        done
done
------------------------------------

Compilation on clang is not currently supported due to build failures on 
Altivec data types for vectorization:

In file included from ../lib/librte_eal/common/eal_common_options.c:33:
In file included from ../lib/librte_eal/ppc/include/rte_memcpy.h:12:
In file included from ../lib/librte_eal/ppc/include/rte_altivec.h:10:
/usr/lib64/clang/9.0.1/include/altivec.h:55:19: error: unknown type name 
'vector'
static __inline__ vector bool char __ATTRS_o_ai
                   ^
/usr/lib64/clang/9.0.1/include/altivec.h:56:10: error: unknown type name 
'vector'
vec_perm(vector bool char __a, vector bool char __b, vector unsigned 
char __c);

and C99 atomics:

../lib/librte_eal/ppc/include/rte_atomic.h:85:9: error: implicit 
declaration of function '__atomic_exchange_2' is invalid in C99 
[-Werror,-Wimplicit-function-declaration]
         return __atomic_exchange_2(dst, val, __ATOMIC_SEQ_CST);
                ^

The script then immediately launches into an x86 build no matter what 
architecture the system is running on:

------------------------------------
default_machine='nehalem'
ok=$(cc -march=$default_machine -E - < /dev/null > /dev/null 2>&1 || 
echo false)
if [ "$ok" = "false" ] ; then

I think the logic of looping through supported configs for test builds 
is the right one, but more changes are required for multi-architecture 
support in this script.  For now I'd abandon the PPC/ARM support 
entirely in this script.

This script supports only builds from x86 Linux so far.
This patch is adding cross-compilation of ppc from x86,
and it works fine.

I am adding PPC compilation check to avoid having PPC broken,
because after asking for many years to IBM execs,
there is still no PPC CI integrated in DPDK patchwork.
If you don't think this small step is going in the right direction,
then I will stop bothering about PPC support,
and we should probably completely drop PPC support I guess.

Each cross-compilation case needs to define the target compiler
and the meson cross file.
Given the compiler is already defined in the cross file,
the latter is enough.

The function "build" is changed to accept a cross file alternatively
to the compiler name. In the case of a file (detected if readable),
the compiler is extracted with sed and tr, and the option --cross-file
is automatically added.

If a compiler is not found in $PATH, the compilation test is skipped.
In some cases, the compiler could be found after extending $PATH
in an environment configuration script (called by load-devel-config).

The decision to skip is deferred to a later stage, after loading the
configuration script.

In such case, the variable DPDK_TARGET, used by the configuration script
as input, is the compiler name.

Add cross-compilation support of a PPC target in the build test matrix.
The CPU is defined as Power8, running as little endian.

The Meson cross file is renamed from meson_mingw.txt to cross-mingw,
and is added to test-meson-builds.sh.

The only example supported on Windows so far is "helloworld",
that's why the default list of examples is overridden.

Which distro and packages are used for testing?  I tried it with Ubuntu 
20.04 but the cross-compiler is named differently 
(powerpc64le-linux-gnu-gcc instead of powerpc64le-linux-gcc).

Sorry, I didn't understand the context behind the change request nor how 
the script is used.  I appreciate the effort behind the change and would 
like to help where I can.

I'm using a buildroot toolchain from bootlin:
https://toolchains.bootlin.com/releases_powerpc64le-power8.html

If it is more common to have "gnu" in the prefix,
no problem to change it in this patch.
I can create "gnu" symbolic links in my toolchain.

Ideally I would like to have an option to specify the toolchain prefix
with meson, instead of hardcoding it in a cross file.

If there's no defined distro where this tool is expected to be used I'd 
be happy with a comment in the cross file indicating which set of 
cross-compilers you chose for the implementation.
