Re: [Patch] PR python/15464 and python/16113

Attached is a new version of the patch which addresses Tom's comments.

Siva> +   if (name_obj != Py_None)
Siva> +     {
Siva> +       field = python_string_to_host_string (name_obj);
Siva> +       Py_DECREF (name_obj);
Siva> +       name_obj = NULL;
Siva> +       if (field == NULL)
Siva> +         return NULL;
Siva> +     }

Siva> +   if (name_obj == Py_None || field[0] == '\0')
Siva> +     {
Siva> +       PyObject *bitpos_obj;
Siva> +       int valid;
Siva> +
Siva> +       Py_XDECREF (name_obj);

Tom> I think that if name_obj is the Python string "", then it will be

I had "name_obj = NULL" in the first if block with the second decref
an x-decref to avoid decref-ing twice.  This is irrelevant now as I
have modified to make the name 'None' if the name is "".

Siva> + res_val = value_struct_elt_bitpos (&tmp, bitpos, "struct/class/union");

Tom> I think this approach will fail in the situation where multiple
Tom> anonymous sub-objects appear at the same bitpos.  I think this happens

Tom> multiple inheritance.

I apologize for not being thorough here.  Even a simple union with two
un-named fields can show the problem.

Tom> It may be sufficient to also pass in an expected type, which could be
Tom> extracted from the Field object.

The attached patch takes this route.
