Subject [Impala-ASF-CR] IMPALA-4518: CopyStringVal() doesn't copy null string
Date Thu, 24 Nov 2016 00:23:58 GMT
Internal Jenkins has submitted this change and it was merged.

Change subject: IMPALA-4518: CopyStringVal() doesn't copy null string

IMPALA-4518: CopyStringVal() doesn't copy null string

Previously, CopyStringVal() mistakenly copies a null
StringVal as an empty string (i.e. a non-null string
with zero length). This change fixes the problem by
distinguishing between these two cases in CopyStringVal()
and handles them properly. Also added a test case for it.

This problem only started showing up recently due to
commit 51268c053ffe41dc1aa9f1b250878113d4225258 which
calls CopyStringVal() in OffsetFnInit(). All other
pre-existing callers of CopyStringVal() before that
commit checks if 'src' is null before calling it so
the problem never showed up. In that sense, this is
a latent bug exposed by the aforementioned commit.
