Regcache is a class. There is no need for explicit xmalloc
and xfree methods, it is much simpler to use new and delete.


Tested on a --enable-targets=all build with board files unix,
native-gdbserver and unittest.exp.


2017-08-16  Alan Hayward  <alan.hayward@arm.com>

	* frame.c (frame_save_as_regcache): Use new.
	(frame_pop): Update name.
	* infrun.c (discard_infcall_suspend_state): Use delete.
	* jit.c (jit_dealloc_cache): Use delete.
	(jit_frame_sniffer): Use new.
	* linux-fork.c (free_fork): Use delete.
	(fork_save_infrun_state): Likewise.
	* mi/mi-main.c (mi_cmd_data_list_changed_registers): Update name.
	* ppc-linux-tdep.c (ppu2spu_sniffer): Use new.
	(ppu2spu_dealloc_cache): Use delete.
	* regcache.c (regcache_xmalloc): Remove.
	(regcache_xfree): Remove.
	(do_regcache_delete): Update name.
	(make_cleanup_regcache_delete): Likewise.
	* regcache.h: Remove functions and rename.
	* spu-tdep.c (spu2ppu_dealloc_cache): Use delete.

new/delete isn't simpler than xmalloc/xfree, IMO.  We still need to take
care of releasing resources.

It makes no sense to change make_cleanup_regcache_xfree to
make_cleanup_regcache_delete.  We still have to use cleanup.

scratch is only used within this function, so we can change it to a
local object (instead of a pointer), and call regcache_save here.  Then,
we can remove the cleanups.

Why don't you do this? then, we don't need this make_cleanup_regcache_xfree.

std::unique_ptr<regcache> prev_regs (this_regs);

We can use std::unique_ptr<regcache> too here.  After call
regcache_save, call .release () to return the raw pointer to cache->regcache.

This is not related to this patch.  It should be in patch #1.

Agreed, but I wanted to only have one way of doing the same thing.
We have to have a constructor/destructor.
regcache_xmalloc and regcache_xfree are (almost) one liners that call new/delete.

I made this change to keep the consistent with the other changes in this patch.
Using new together with something_xfree() sounds wrong.

If I make all the changes below, then I think we can remove this function.

This is new to me. Happy to use it.
