Recent mingw32 provide those defines.

... and all of those defines are wrong, because QEMU does not use
MS format specifiers. http://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/74276/
tried to fix this. My preferred solution is removing those PRI*64 from
qemu-common.h, because not only recent mingw32 versions provide
the (wrong) definitions, but even the Debian version provides them
(which is really old, but I use it for my regression tests).

The wrong definitions do not allow using -Wformat for mingw32
builds, but they work because (most?) relevant mingw32 functions
accept both MS and standard format specifiers.

Adding the correct definitions (to qemu-os-win32.h, not to qemu-common.h)
would be another solution as long as mingw32 does not handle

It's never too late to implement C99!

Thanks, applied to the trivial patches tree:


Stefan, the patch won't harm, but it's also unnecessary.
So it's up to you whether you remove it from your queue,
modify it as I suggested above or apply it as it is.

Keeping those #defines unconditional prevents new mingw builds from
working, according to the commit description. So we have to either
remove them entirely or do them correctly. Dropping this patch will
keep the build from working.

I suggest we keep this patch. A follow-up patch can us MS format
specifiers or do any other adjustments that make this work better.
Stefan, would you be able to send that patch?


Hi Stefan,

I just did a "git blame include/inttypes.h" on cygwin/mingw32 sources
(git repository created from CVS). Here is the result:

8f6754d5 (dannysmith 2002-06-13 10:20:41 +0000  34) #define PRId64 "I64d"
8f6754d5 (dannysmith 2002-06-13 10:20:41 +0000  52) #define PRIi64 "I64i"
8f6754d5 (dannysmith 2002-06-13 10:20:41 +0000  70) #define PRIo64 "I64o"
8f6754d5 (dannysmith 2002-06-13 10:20:41 +0000  90) #define PRIu64 "I64u"
8f6754d5 (dannysmith 2002-06-13 10:20:41 +0000 109) #define PRIx64 "I64x"
8f6754d5 (dannysmith 2002-06-13 10:20:41 +0000 127) #define PRIX64 "I64X"

The format specifiers were added in 2002 and never changed since that time,
so they are rather old. They don't break any current mingw32 builds.
They will break builds as soon as mingw32 fixes the wrong definitions
(which I don't expect for the next months).

I'll send a patch which simply removes the definitions from
qemu-common.h, so Jan's patch is no longer needed.
