      Add a new wasm32-unknown-wasi target · ace71240
      Alex Crichton authored
      This commit adds a new wasm32-based target distributed through rustup,
      supported in the standard library, and implemented in the compiler. The
      `wasm32-unknown-wasi` target is intended to be a WebAssembly target
      which matches the [WASI proposal recently announced.][LINK]. In summary
      the WASI target is an effort to define a standard set of syscalls for
      WebAssembly modules, allowing WebAssembly modules to not only be
      portable across architectures but also be portable across environments
      implementing this standard set of system calls.
      
      The wasi target in libstd is still somewhat bare bones. This PR does not
      fill out the filesystem, networking, threads, etc. Instead it only
      provides the most basic of integration with the wasi syscalls, enabling
      features like:
      
      * `Instant::now` and `SystemTime::now` work
      * `env::args` is hooked up
      * `env::vars` will look up environment variables
      * `println!` will print to standard out
      * `process::{exit, abort}` should be hooked up appropriately
      
      None of these APIs can work natively on the `wasm32-unknown-unknown`
      target, but with the assumption of the WASI set of syscalls we're able
      to provide implementations of these syscalls that engines can implement.
      Currently the primary engine implementing wasi is [wasmtime], but more
      will surely emerge!
      
      In terms of future development of libstd, I think this is something
      we'll probably want to discuss. The purpose of the WASI target is to
      provide a standardized set of syscalls, but it's *also* to provide a
      standard C sysroot for compiling C/C++ programs. This means it's
      intended that functions like `read` and `write` are implemented for this
      target with a relatively standard definition and implementation. It's
      unclear, therefore, how we want to expose file descriptors and how we'll
      want to implement system primitives. For example should `std::fs::File`
      have a libc-based file descriptor underneath it? The raw wasi file
      descriptor? We'll see! Currently these details are all intentionally
      hidden and things we can change over time.
      
      A `WasiFd` sample struct was added to the standard library as part of
      this commit, but it's not currently used. It shows how all the wasi
      syscalls could be ergonomically bound in Rust, and they offer a possible
      implementation of primitives like `std::fs::File` if we bind wasi file
      descriptors exactly.
      
      Apart from the standard library, there's also the matter of how this
      target is integrated with respect to its C standard library. The
      reference sysroot, for example, provides managment of standard unix file
      descriptors and also standard APIs like `open` (as opposed to the
      relative `openat` inspiration for the wasi ssycalls). Currently the
      standard library relies on the C sysroot symbols for operations such as
      environment management, process exit, and `read`/`write` of stdio fds.
      We want these operations in Rust to be interoperable with C if they're
      used in the same process. Put another way, if Rust and C are linked into
      the same WebAssembly binary they should work together, but that requires
      that the same C standard library is used.
      
      We also, however, want the `wasm32-unknown-wasi` target to be
      usable-by-default with the Rust compiler without requiring a separate
      toolchain to get downloaded and configured. With that in mind, there's
      two modes of operation for the `wasm32-unknown-wasi` target:
      
      1. By default the C standard library is statically provided inside of
         `liblibc.rlib` distributed as part of the sysroot. This means that
         you can `rustc foo.wasm --target wasm32-unknown-unknown` and you're
         good to go, a fully workable wasi binary pops out. This is
         incompatible with linking in C code, however, which may be compiled
         against a different sysroot than the Rust code was previously
         compiled against. In this mode the default of `rust-lld` is used to
         link binaries.
      
      2. For linking with C code, the `-C target-feature=-crt-static` flag
         needs to be passed. This takes inspiration from the musl target for
         this flag, but the idea is that you're no longer using the provided
         static C runtime, but rather one will be provided externally. This
         flag is intended to also get coupled with an external `clang`
         compiler configured with its own sysroot. Therefore you'll typically
         use this flag with `-C linker=/path/to/clang-script-wrapper`. Using
         this mode the Rust code will continue to reference standard C
         symbols, but the definition will be pulled in by the linker configured.
      
      Alright so that's all the current state of this PR. I suspect we'll
      definitely want to discuss this before landing of course! This PR is
      coupled with libc changes as well which I'll be posting shortly.

      Update parking_lot to 0.7 · a82f0ce5

      Unfortunately this'll dupe parking_lot until the data_structures crate
      is published and be updated in rls in conjunction with crossbeam-channel
