Hi Torsten,

at first I thought that those intermittent test failures were limited to
Windows, but they are not: I can see it now in a build on 32-bit Linux.
Full logs here:

https://dev.azure.com/gitgitgadget/git/_build/results?buildId=1032&_a=summary&view=ms.vss-test-web.build-test-results-tab

Excerpt from the failing test case:

I reported this and Peff looked into it on the way to Git Merge, but
not working solution yet.

I shortly looked into the pointers here -
Is t0025 flaky after the fix from Peff:

[PATCH] add: use separate ADD_CACHE_RENORMALIZE flag

Or has it always been shaky ?
Does anybody know ?

I sort-of bisected it, and it pointed to Peff's fix.

Running 't0025 --stress' in the merge of 'sg/stress-test' and
'jk/add-ignore-errors-bit-assignment-fix' results in a failure within
seconds or <20 repetitions.  In the merge with
'jk/add-ignore-errors-bit-assignment-fix^' it runs successfully for
thousands of repetitions.

The NonStop port has traditionally had issues with t0025, which we tended to
ignore because things did work. We wrote those off as bash issues in t0025
since they seemed to be corrected when we picked up a new bash version about
a year ago. I will keep monitoring this, particularly when 2.21 comes out.

Cheers,
Randall

Oof. Well, now I know why my attempts to fix the test failed. It was not
my new test that was failing at all, but rather the existing test. Which
implies that I severely bungled the actual code change.

Armed with that knowledge, it was pretty easy to find said bungling. The
fix is below.

Junio, this should go on top of jk/add-ignore-errors-bit-assignment-fix
as soon as possible, as the regression is already in master. And I'll go
find a brown paper bag. ;)

Subject: [PATCH] add_to_index(): convert forgotten HASH_RENORMALIZE check

Commit 9e5da3d055 (add: use separate ADD_CACHE_RENORMALIZE flag,
2019-01-17) switched out using HASH_RENORMALIZE in our flags field for a
new ADD_CACHE_RENORMALIZE flag. However, it forgot to convert one of the
checks for HASH_RENORMALIZE into the new flag, which totally broke "git
add --renormalize".

To make matters even more confusing, the resulting code would racily
pass the tests!  The forgotten check was responsible for defeating the
up-to-date check of the index entry. That meant that "git add
--renormalize" would refuse to renormalize things that appeared
stat-clean. But most of the time the test commands run fast enough that
the file mtime is the same as the index mtime. And thus we err on the
conservative side and re-hash the file, which is what "--renormalize"
would have wanted.

But if you're unlucky and cross that one-second boundary between writing
the file and writing the index (which is more likely to happen on a slow
or heavily-loaded system), then the file appears stat-clean. And
"--renormalize" would effectively do nothing.

The fix is straightforward: convert this check to use the right flag.

Ack, of course.

And trying to answer an older question:

What if we had renamed "flags" like this ?

FYI: t0020-t0027 all passed on the NonStop port for 2.21.0-rc0 - so no
issues for us on this one.

Yup, the preview has both the renormalize fix and another hotfix for
it Peff made.  Thanks all for quick fixes and confirmations.

Yes, changing the name of the variable in the original patch would have
caught this case. I don't know if it is worth doing now or not (the code
as it is now seems pretty clear to me, but of course I've looked at it a
lot lately).

Note that t0021 is very likely flaky on NonStop, too:

We will keep a watch on it, thanks. t0021 has been stable on this platform for at least a year and passes for 2.21.0-rc0 as well as 2.20.0.
