Also, I wonder if we need to free the hash table ever, the only meaningful
place would be when we are done with compilation, if all uses of this (even
in the future) are from the FEs, perhaps freeing the hash table somewhere
after parsing of the whole CU finished would be fine, but if we need it even
from the middle-end, that might be too early.

Yeah, get_ubsan_type_info_for_type would be better, plus
The docs say that it should be log2 of the bit width, so I'd expect that
you return
(exact_log2 (TYPE_PRECISION (type)) << 1) | !TYPE_UNSIGNED (type)
(perhaps with error if exact_log2 returns -1) and thus handle all possible
type bitsizes.  Or if you prefer to use GET_MODE_BITSIZE, that.

Have you checked what clang does if you use typedefs?  Does it use
the names appearing in the typedefs rather than their underlying types,
or is it TYPE_MAIN_VARIANT (type) actually?


ASM_FORMAT_PRIVATE_NAME (tmp_name, ".Lubsan_type", type_var_id_num++);

I don't think the . at the beginning is going to work everywhere
(on targets that don't support dots in labels),
I think you want ASM_GENERATE_INTERNAL_LABEL instead and just use
"Lubsan_type" as the second argument (note, this macro needs a buffer,
doesn't alloca it).
