Wouldn't it be better to fix the strategy members instead. Or have you tried that and there's a problem with it?

comment:3 by pdziepak, 8 years ago

This patch fixes that particular problem in probably the best way. However, it looks like there are still const correctness problems (or at least const_casts worth removing) in AVLTreeMap implementation. At least, now, everything that NFSv4 client needs from it works correctly.

Thanks for the update, Pawel. In the NodeStrategy comment, the const in the return value of GetKey() is superfluous, since it isn't a reference. Please note that the return value isn't a reference by intent, since in some cases the key isn't stored as a sub-object in the node object, but has to be computed (if it can, the node strategy is allowed to return a const reference though, since that is assignment compatible).

I also wonder why the GetKey() version with a non-const Node* parameter would be needed at all. I would say a const version would suffice.

And finally I don't think the new GetValue() version is ever called. AFAICT the only caller is AVLTreeMap::_GetValue(Node* node), which has a non-const node anyway.

Thank you for feedback. Now, this patch is much simpler.
