Fix resolution conflict between global and class static variables in C++.

Authored by paulherman on Aug 14 2015, 4:54 PM.



Consider having a global variable 'a' and a static variable with the same name inside a class. This resolves the arbitrary choice when resolving the name 'a'.

I would do this as:

const DWARFDebugInfoEntry *parent_die = GetDeclContextDIEContainingDIE(dwarf_cu, die);
if (parent_die->Tag() != DW_TAG_class_type && parent_die->Tag() != DW_TAG_structure_type)
    VariableSP var_sp (ParseVariableDIE(sc, dwarf_cu, die, LLDB_INVALID_ADDRESS));
    if (var_sp)
        variables->AddVariableIfUnique (var_sp);

This will avoid parsing extra global variables by figuring out we don't need it _before_ we go and parse a global variable.

I would rather not have the SymbolFileDWARF::ParseGlobalVariableDIE(...) function because it doesn't make sense at as global variables can exist in classes and structures and I would expect a function named SymbolFileDWARF::ParseGlobalVariableDIE(...) to parse that variable, but SymbolFileDWARF:: ParseVariableDIE(...) already does this so there is really no need for SymbolFileDWARF::ParseGlobalVariableDIE().

I've changed the commit so that ParseVariableDIE now detects if a variable is static inside a class or struct. Now "target variable" works since the variables are not removed from the variable list of the compile unit, but filtered when searching for a specific variable.
