Create a new _BuildSectionData() to hold the code that is now in
GetData(), so that it is clearly separated from entry.GetData() base
function.

Separate out the 'pad-before' processing to make this easier to
understand.

Unfortunately this breaks the testDual test. Rather than squash several
patches into an un-reviewable glob, disable the test for now.

Consider this fragment:

    section {
        skip-at-start = <16>;

        blob {
            pad-before = <16>;
            filename = "foo";
        }
    }

Is this invalid as 'blob' isn't offset > skip-at-start? This wouldn't
be padded in the earlier code, but would be padded after this (assuming
it doesn't error out) -- was that a bug or undefined behaviour or
something?

I think you could use @unittest.skip() here, but perhaps it's not worth
doing a v2 for that (especially since you're re-enabling it later in the
series).

You have very sharp eyes.

The case you list seems to produce the same result before and after
this patch. But if I put the padding at the top level it does strange
things, so perhaps that's what you mean?

I've added a few test cases along these lines in v2, and one of them
certainly different behaviour. This is good actually since it shows a
simple case of what these padding changes are intended to fix.

Thanks! I had actually tried to copy this to the fit etype before making
it use the section etype directly, so I did read and think about this
part (and Pack()) a lot to better understand how things were supposed to
work.

I was trying to write a case where a pad = (-16) + (16) = 0 gets split
into two (pad = -16, then entry.pad_before = 16) after that change,
causing a change in padding. Still looks correct to me, but I didn't
actually run anything so I'm probably getting something wrong.

See what you think of the above test cases - testSectionPad() and
testSectionAlign()

I've tried to visualize those tests a bit, in the following:

- The vertical line of numbers is the offsets, usually starts with 0 and
  ends with entry.size of that entry.
- The offset to the upper-left of a block is that entry's entry.offset
- The "*" offsets are unconstrained, determined as parts are fitted
  together.
- The "k*n" are offsets for alignment that must be a multiple of k
- The vertical "[...]" line is what the entry.data returns for that
  entry.
- The horizontal line from a value is what the value corresponds to.

Hope things make sense. I kind of started drawing things to gather my
thoughts and improve my understanding, but didn't want to discard them.
Please do tell if anything's wrong.


== 177_skip_at_start.dts ==

    binman {
    [ 0
    . | section {
    . | [ 0
    . | . | 16 -------------------- binman/section:skip-at-start
    . | . | | u-boot {
    . | . | | [ 0
    . | . | | . | U_BOOT_DATA
    . | . | | ] *
    . | . | | }
    . | . | *
    . | ] *
    . | }
    ] *
    }

I understand skip-at-start as if it's creating a frame of reference for
alignments. Then, that frame is mapped back to starting from zero.

It looks weird here for me to use two nested offset-lines here. I can't
use one line that starts at skip-at-start, because that changes the
entry.offset if the section has pad-before.


== 178_skip_at_start_pad.dts ==

    binman {
    [ 0
    . | section {
    . | [ 0
    . | . | 16 -------------------- binman/section:skip-at-start
    . | . | | u-boot {
    . | . | |   0
    . | . | |   | 8 x <0x00>
    . | . | |   |  \--------------- binman/section/u-boot:pad-before
    . | . | | [ *
    . | . | | . | U_BOOT_DATA
    . | . | | ] *
    . | . | |   | 4 x <0x00>
    . | . | |   |  \--------------- binman/section/u-boot:pad-after
    . | . | |   * ----------------- binman/section/u-boot:size
    . | . | | }
    . | . | *
    . | ] *
    . | }
    ] *
    }

This is like the above, just adds padding to u-boot. I have to visualize
the padding as something inside the entry block, since alignments and
entry.size is calculated for the padded data, not the raw U_BOOT_DATA.
It's a bit weird but understandable that len(entry.data) != entry.size.


== 179_skip_at_start_section_pad.dts ==

    binman {
    [ 0
    . | section {
    . |   0
    . |   | 8 x <0x00>
    . |   |  \--------------------- binman/section:pad-before
    . | [ *
    . | . | 16 -------------------- binman/section:skip-at-start
    . | . | | u-boot {
    . | . | | [ 0
    . | . | | . | U_BOOT_DATA
    . | . | | ] *
    . | . | | }
    . | . | *
    . | ] *
    . |   | 4 x <0x00>
    . |   |  \--------------------- binman/section:pad-after
    . |   *
    . | }
    ] *
    }

I'm still having trouble with this. In the old code:

> base = self.pad_before + (entry.offset or 0) - self._skip_at_start
         8               + 16                  - 16
> pad = base - len(section_data) + (entry.pad_before or 0)
        8    - 0                 +  0
> if pad > 0:
     8
>     section_data += tools.GetBytes(self._pad_byte, pad)
                                                     8

So, why was it prepending 16 bytes? The only way I see is if u-boot
entry.offset is 24, but that's explicitly checked to be 16 in the test.

However, it's clear to me now that the fragment I sent wouldn't result
in different padding between two versions, because there entry.offset =
section.skip_at_start so the negative padding never happens.

Then, what does an entry.offset < section.skip-at-start mean? That's
what was missing for the actual thing I was trying to trigger:

    section {
        skip-at-start = <16>;

        blob {
            offset = <0>;

It looks like paddings are part of the entry:
- entry.offset and entry.image_pos point to pad-before padding
- entry.size includes both paddings
- pad-before, pad-after properties belong to the entry
- entry's parent aligns the entry with respect to the padded-data

But, also the opposite:
- entry.data doesn't include padding bytes
- it's entirely added by the entry's parent
- pad-byte property belongs to the parent

I have no idea which way things should go towards. I think padding could
be completely handled by the entries themselves. Section's
GetPaddedDataForEntry(entry, entry_data) could be moved to Entry as
GetPaddedData(pad_byte), which the parent section would use while
assembling itself. The pad_byte argument could be dropped by making the
entries find it by traversing upwards in the tree starting from the
entry itself (and not just checking the immediate parent).

  }

The pad-byte values here surprise me a bit. I'd say they should be the
parent's pad-byte, since I think this in-section alignment padding is
the same kind of thing as the pad-before and pad-after, and those use
the parent's. However, like what I said above, the latter two could
instead be changed to use the entry's pad-byte like this one.
