Swift Runtime Error running on Android SDK 30 arm64-v8a

When running swift code that does any string manipulation on Android SDK 30 with an arm64-v8a device you get a runtime error:

Fatal error: No foreign strings on Linux in this version of Swift: file Swift/StringGraphemeBreaking.swift, line 239

I think it has something to do with the addition of Tagged Pointers in Android SDK 30 because if I disable that feature I do not get the runtime errors anymore. However there is a warning in the Android documentation about the possibility that future hardware may not be able to disable the feature.

This escape hatch will disappear in future versions of Android, because issues of this nature will be incompatible with MTE.

Does anyone here know if there is a workaround for this issue besides downgrading to Android SDK 29 or disabling tagged pointers?

Here is the backtrace

Thanks for reporting, the same issue cropped up when trying to run SPM on Android 11, looks like you found the root cause. I have a vague recollection of Swift using tagged pointers internally, maybe that collides with Android 11 trying to do the same. I have ordered an Android 11 device and will look into this soon.

I finally spent a couple hours looking into this and can confirm tagged pointers are the issue. I built a debug Swift stdlib and SPM and ran swift-build --version under lldb in the Termux app, both on an Android 11 device that has this problem and one that doesn't (I guess memory tagging isn't rolled out fully on Android 11 yet).

On the tagged pointer device, it fails when interpolating the help strings, when it checks the utf8Count of a string it's appending and looks up if the string isFastUTF8, which is determined by whether the 60th bit is set or not as explained in the docs.

When comparing the same failing code on both devices, the top byte is consistently set on the memory-tagged device and zero'd on the working Android 11 device. As the 60th bit is set, the Swift stdlib goes off the rails and ends up saying it doesn't handle foreign strings. I'm not quite sure why this other help string interpolation is done at all, seems an efficiency issue in swift-argument parser or Swift itself, when all I'm asking for is the SPM version.

Since the Swift stdlib and linux are both trying to use tagged pointers, I'm not sure what the solution could be: move the Swift tag to the second byte?

I wonder would the difficulty with changing the location of the Swift tag to the second byte be maintaining backwards compatibility? Is there documentation anywhere on how Swift stdlib uses the tag that you know of?

would the difficulty with changing the location of the Swift tag to the second byte be maintaining backwards compatibility?

We could just move the tag on linux platforms, where there is no stable ABI for Swift anyway.

Is there documentation anywhere on how Swift stdlib uses the tag that you know of?

I linked to it above: see my last link from my last comment, straight from the source. There is further doc on string layout later in that file.

Obviously there will be one less byte available for small strings if we move the tag byte, unsure how pervasively that will affect the stdlib code.
