[llvm-readelf/obj] - Cleanup the interface of `DumpStyle`. NFCI.

Authored by grimar on Wed, Sep 2, 9:22 AM.



We have 2 DumpStyles currently:
class GNUStyle : public DumpStyle<ELFT> and class LLVMStyle : public DumpStyle<ELFT>.

The problem of DumpStyle interface is that almost for each method
we provide const ELFFile<ELFT> * as argument. But in fact each of
dump styles keeps ELFDumper<ELFT> *Dumper which can be used to get an object from.

But since we use the Obj too often, I've decided to introduce a one more reference member
instead of reading it from the Dumper each time:
const ELFFile<ELFT> &Obj; This is kind of similar to FileName member which we have already:
it is also used to store a the file name which can be read from Dumper->getElfObject()->getFileName().

I had to adjust the code which previously worked with a pointer to an object
and now works with a reference.

In a follow-up I am going to try to get rid of const ELFObjectFile<ELFT> arguments
which are still passed to a set of functions.

Another minor improvement you could do is initialise FileName in the initialiser list. Separate patch that one though.


Maybe worth changing getGroups to take a reference too, whilst you're at it.
