Really you should use CP_TYPE_CONST_P to test this; IIUC, things can be
const without being readonly (and perhaps even vice-versa), depending on which
kind of section (.data/.rdata) they're allocated to.
Thanks for the type, I was completely unaware of the existence of that macro.
I believe this is indeed gcc's bog-standard way of creating a qualified
variant of an existing type. Note that you should see in this case that
TYPE_MAIN_VARIANT (type) == DECL_FIELD_CONTEXT (TYPE_FIELDS (type)), I think.
Good to know, TYPE_MAIN_VARIANT () is exactly what I was looking for,
unfortunately it's description in tree.def isn't exactly crystal clear :P Thank
you very much
