libflux/msg_handler: improve lookup of message handlers for RPCs #1807

garlick commented Nov 7, 2018

As discussed in #1804, this PR simplifies the mechanism used to look up message handlers (by integer matchtag) for received request messages. The current mechanism is hand-coded table lookup. The replacement is zhashx_t, a well tested container.

There is some additional cleanup of errno handling and handling of invalid arguments.

A trivial test was added to ensure invalid arguments cause functions to fail with EINVAL.

Also I tossed in @grondo's build system fix to AM_TESTS_ENVIRONMENT usage suggested in #1803.

libflux/msg_handler: replace "fastpath" with zhashx
Instead of maintaining an array indexed by matchtag
to quickly locate message handlers for RPCs, use a
zhashx configured to use matchtags as hash keys.

This should scale just as well with less complexity.
libflux/msg_handler: preserve errno in delvec
Problem: flux_msg_handler_delvec() calls functions
like free() which might overwrite errno.

Save and restore errno inside the function, and then
remove save/restore in flux_msg_handler_addvec()
error path.
libflux/msg_handler: cleanup errno in flux_msg_handler_create()
Save/restore errno in internal free_msg_handler(), then
eliminate awkward errno preserving code in flux_msg_handler_create()
error paths.
libflux/msg_handler: preserve errno in flux_msg_handler_destory
Problem: flux_msg_handler_destroy() calls functions that
might overwrite errno.

Save/restore errno.
libflux/msg_handler: flux_msg_handler_create handle invalid args
Problem: flux_msg_handler_create() segfaults on a NULL
flux_t handle.

Add an EINVAL check.
libflux/msg_handler: flux_dispatch_requeue handle invalid args
Problem: flux_dispatch_requeue() segfaults on a NULL argument.

Return EINVAL flux_t argument is NULL
