relates to:

  • SR-272 Linker error: Undefined reference to _TFC10Foundation8NSObjectg9_cfTypeIDSu
  • SR-1901 Linker error "hidden symbol" on subclassing Thread

Issue Description:

Pull request apple/swift#2039 adds tests demonstrating the problem. Namely, the following test fails on Linux:

// test/Parse/Inputs/public_var_private_setter.swift
public class BaseClass {
       public internal(set) var variable: Int = 0
// test/Parse/use_public_var_private_setter.swift
// RUN: %target-build-swift -emit-module -emit-library %S/Inputs/public_var_private_setter.swift
// RUN: %target-build-swift -I . -L . -lpublic_var_private_setter %s -o use_public_var_private_setter

// On Linux, the linker step of this test fails with "Bad value", specifically:
// "hidden symbol `_TFC25public_var_private_setter9BaseClasscfT_S0_' isn't defined".
// XFAIL: linux

import public_var_private_setter

class Class: BaseClass {}

This is the underlying issue behind, and behind this workaround in swift-corelibs-xctest:

/// - Note: FIXME: This property should be readonly, but currently has to be publicly settable due to a
/// toolchain bug on Linux. To ensure compatibility of tests between
/// swift-corelibs-xctest and Apple XCTest, this property should not be modified.
public var name: String
