For context.h, the global functions are used by autogenerated code in
gtype-desc.c, which calls them the first time the context is visited in
a gc or pch traversal; they merely call into the class, to avoid needing
friend decls.

For opt_pass and pass_manager, something different is going on.

For some reason gengtype doesn't generate the triad of gt_ggc_mx_FOO,
gt_pch_nx_FOO, gt_pch_p_NFOO functions in gtype-desc.c, for types
FOO=opt_pass and pass_manager.  Presumably this is because the types are
only visited by code in context.c

So the global functions for opt_pass and pass_manager are a hand-written
implementation of what gengtype would write; they are called *each time*
the entity is reached during a traversal.  The member functions are
called only the *first time* the entity is visited.

Does this need a descriptive comment in the source code?

Thanks
Dave
