[PATCH] RFC: Start discussion on class or classes for thread data in GCC multithreading effort

From: npkrause <>

This is not meant to be merged nor follow any GCC coding standards
but start the work discussed about multithreading GCC. The dicussion
or part of it is about using per thread versions of the shared
data structures. However this runs into three issues to my knowledge
and therefore need to be dicussed. Some of this was discussed at
Cauldron but Richard was not there so I would like his comments.
1. Stack Size in the pthread spec seems to be a limit of 16K but
can we assume more to allocate the rather large structures into the
thread TLS.
2. Does the data need to be around per GIMPLE passes or for the
whole compilation as if not I would suggest a set of different
classes per GIMPLE,RTL phases.
3. Are the data structures immutable outside of the creation of
the data or do we need to be able to change the data on the fly?
