From: Alan Hayward <alan.hayward@arm.com>

Following a suggestion from Philipp, this patch changes reg_defs in
gdbserver tdesc so that it is a vector of objects instead of a vector
of pointers. Updated uses of reg_defs to use references.

This change reduces the number of small hunks allocated when building
reg_defs.

find_register_by_number() is only used by regcache, therefore I made
it a static function and moved it earlier in the file so that find_regno()
could use it. The eventual plan is to replace this with accessor functions
in a common tdesc class.

Alan.

	(target_desc::operator==): Use references.
	(init_target_desc): Likewise.
	(tdesc_create_reg): Use references and resize in a single call.
	* tdesc.h (struct target_desc): Replace pointer with object.

Please keep the curly braces for the for, as shown here:

https://www.gnu.org/prep/standards/html_node/Syntactic-Conventions.html#index-multiple-variables-in-a-line

Can you put the moving of this function/making it static/removing the declaration
in its own patch?  It's pre-approved, with that fixed.

I don't think the first part, "&reg != &reg", makes sense.  It's comparing
the addresses of the local variables.  Also, that comparison only made
sense as a shortcut when the vector held pointers to dynamically allocated
memory.  So I think it should just be removed.

Actually, now that the vector elements are the objects directly, I think that
this whole for loop could be replaced with:

if (reg_defs != other.reg_defs)
  return false;

The if that compares the vector sizes above that can also be removed, since
it's also done by std::vector::operator==:

  template<typename _Tp, typename _Alloc>
    inline bool
    operator==(const vector<_Tp, _Alloc>& __x, const vector<_Tp, _Alloc>& __y)
    { return (__x.size() == __y.size()
	      && std::equal(__x.begin(), __x.end(), __y.begin())); }

To simplify this further, I would suggest adding a default constructor to reg
that initializes everything to nullptr/0, and adding a constructor that takes
parameters.  The .resize() will only be necessary if regnum != 0 and will
automatically initialize all the unused register slots properly, so the for
loop will be unnecessary:

  if (regnum != 0)
    tdesc->reg_defs.resize (regnum);

The register can then be added with

  tdesc->reg_defs.emplace_back (name, bitsize);

One behavior that might change compared to the previous code is when trying to
add a register with a regnum smaller than the current size of the vector.  I
think that the old code would have asserted, but the new code would just
accept it and resize the vector to a smaller size.  Could you verify?  In that
case, maybe we should move the gdb_assert to the beginning of the function:

  gdb_assert (regnum == 0 || regnum >= tdesc->reg_defs.size ())

something like that.  It can also be moved under the "if (regnum != 0)" shown
above.
