[PATCH] C++ space optimization: de-cloning con/de/structors, take III


Here's the third offering of the con/de/structor "de-cloner."

I've removed the additional copy-constructor calls, as Jason

I spent a fair amount of effort trying to get the same result by
setting current_function_is_thunk. Alas, I could not discover a tree
that would provoke the invisible reference logic, and still be
acceptable to the usual C++ argument processing (when a
copy-constructor was involved). It's also not clear to me that the
invisible reference logic will work transitively. Perhaps
build_function_call is not the tool I should be using here (?).
Jason, if you have suggestions, I'd be happy to share the details with
you off-list.

Per request, I've made these unified con/de/structors private to each
translation unit (TREE_PUBLIC and DECL_EXTERNAL cleared). This should
effectively hide these from the ABI, with the unfortunate side-effect
of rendering them un-coalescable.

Bootstraps on Linux x86 and passes the C++ testsuite with no new

* gcc/cp/mangle.c (write_special_name_constructor,
write_special_name_destructor) Mangle unified,
"old-style" constructors and destructors.
* gcc/cp/optimize.c (maybe_thunk_body) New.
(maybe_clone_body) Call it, and one loop becomes two.
* gcc/include/demangle.h Add 'unified' constructor and destructor enums.
