[clangd] Improve inlay hints of things expanded from macros

Authored by sammccall on Sep 15 2022, 3:48 PM.



When we aim a hint at some expanded tokens, we're only willing to attach it
to spelled tokens that exactly corresponde.

int zoom(int x, int y, int z);
int dummy = zoom(NUMBERS);

Here we want to place a hint "x:" on the expanded "1", but we shouldn't
be willing to place it on NUMBERS, because it doesn't *exactly*
correspond (it has more tokens).

Fortunately we don't even have to implement this algorithm from scratch,
TokenBuffer has it.

Only tangentially...

This change makes the whole range significant (previously it was serialized but I think not used by any clients these days). So hiding the token->range conversion inside this function might encourage bugs in the future, even if today all the callers do that.

(I did consider attaching the return type hints to e.g. the parens range rather than a single paren, but can't think of a motivating case in either direction really)
