Very strange! Think I’m ok now.

Agreed and done.

I think Yao didn’t add the method because tdesc_element_visitor is meant to be an interface
and remain abstract.

I considered putting the types into a parent class of tdesc_element_visitor, but that breaks
the accept() functions horribly.
Instead, I’ve created a new subclass from tdesc_element_visitor called tdesc_element_type_visitor
which provides null implementations for all the non type visit functions. gdb_type_creator can
now inherit from tdesc_element_type_visitor and only has to provide the three visitors.

Are you happy with that?

Done. And thanks for the review.


New version implements the above changes.

Didn’t mention previously, but patches have been tested on a make check on x86 targets=all
build with target board unix native-gdbserver. Built for power (because it does not use new
target descriptions), but am unable to test.

2018-01-29  Alan Hayward  <alan.hayward@arm.com>

	* target-descriptions.c (tdesc_element_type_visitor) Add class.
	(tdesc_type): Move make_gdb_type from here.
	(tdesc_type_builtin): Likewise.
	(tdesc_type_vector): Likewise.
	(tdesc_type_with_fields): Move make_gdb_type_ functions from here.
	(make_gdb_type_struct): Move from tdesc_type_with_fields.
	(make_gdb_type_union): Likewise.
	(make_gdb_type_flags): Likewise.
	(make_gdb_type_enum): Likewise.
	(make_gdb_type): New function.
	(tdesc_register_type): Use static make_gdb_type.

Well, now I am unable to apply this one :(.  The message body is encoded in base64,
I tried to decode it and apply it with git-apply, but it doesn't apply, not sure why.
git-send-email is really the safest way.

A type can be abstract but have implementations for some of its methods.  To make a type abstract,
it is common to make the destructor pure virtual, if no other method is pure virtual.

That seems like unnecessary boilerplate to me.  I really don't see why classes derived
from tdesc_element_visitor have to implement methods for nodes they don't care about.

I added Yao in CC so he can chime in.

When I wrote tdesc_element_visitor, in my mind, it is an interface, so
I expect child
class implement all the methods, because at that moment, all methods are needed,
no empty methods.  However, the situation changed a little bit, as per
Alan's needs,
part of the methods of tdesc_element_visitor are needed, and the rest of methods
are empty somewhere.  I don't mind converting tdesc_element_visitor into a base
class which has all these methods empty as a default.  That is fine to
me.  By the
way, Alan's approach is fine to me as well :)
