go/types: assertion failure: Sizeof Basic T is typed #20237

The following test, which is identical to TestIssue16902 aside from src, fails.

func TestShift(t *testing.T) {
	const src = `
package p

const x = 1>>1`
	fset := token.NewFileSet()
	f, err := parser.ParseFile(fset, "x.go", src, 0)
	if err != nil {
	info := types.Info{Types: make(map[ast.Expr]types.TypeAndValue)}
	conf := types.Config{
		Importer: importer.Default(),
		Sizes:    &types.StdSizes{WordSize: 8, MaxAlign: 8},
	_, err = conf.Check("x", fset, []*ast.File{f}, &info)
	if err != nil {
	for _, tv := range info.Types {
		_ = conf.Sizes.Sizeof(tv.Type)
		_ = conf.Sizes.Alignof(tv.Type)

The relevant assertion is near the beginning of StdSizes.SizeOf:

func (s *StdSizes) Sizeof(T Type) int64 {
	switch t := T.Underlying().(type) {
	case *Basic:
		assert(isTyped(T))  // HERE
		k := t.kind

When fixed, we should also test larger shifts, like 0>>1090, which currently produce a different error.


Found by go-fuzz.

@josharian FWIW, you wrote the old test when you fixed #16902... :-)

I don't believe there's anything wrong here: go/types.Sizes.Sizeof is supposed to be called with a typed value; so in this case the test is simply wrong/not applicable.

Trying a large shift count (0 >> 1080) after disabling the assertion (or removing the explicit calls to Sizeof) leads to the error

invalid operation: invalid shift count 1080 (untyped int constant)

which is perhaps not great, but ok: we don't support shift counts over a certain size.
