Subject: [PATCH 1/1] pcre2: allow overriding the system allocator
Date: Mon, 05 Aug 2019 04:51:09 -0700 (PDT)
Message-ID: <3397e6797f872aedd18c6d795f4976e1c579514b.1565005867.git.gitgitgadget@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <pull.306.git.gitgitgadget@gmail.com>

From: Johannes Schindelin <johannes.schindelin@gmx.de>

Since 7d3bf769994 (grep: avoid leak of chartables in PCRE2, 2019-08-01),
we try to release the UTF-8 tables obtained via `pcre2_maketables()`. To
do that, we use the function `free()`. That is all fine and dandy as
long as that refers to the system allocator.

However, when we compile Git with `USE_NED_ALLOCATOR` (notably on
Windows), then `free()` actually calls `nedfree()`. But
`pcre2_maketables()` allocated the tables using the system allocator
because we did not tell it to use nedmalloc instead.

This leads to segmentation faults when the UTF-8 tables are released,
most notably in the `t7816-grep-binary-pattern.sh` test script.

PCRE2 does have an option to override the allocator it should use, and
this patch calls upon it.

As there are other ways to override the system allocator than
`USE_NED_ALLOCATOR`, we choose to specify the allocator we want to use
specifically, even if we still use the system allocator.
