Shrink DynTypedNode by one pointer from 40 to 32 bytes (on x86_64).

Authored by bkramer on Oct 21 2015, 7:51 AM.



The MemoizationData cache was introduced to avoid a series of enum
compares at the cost of making DynTypedNode bigger. This change reverts
to using an enum compare but instead of building a chain of comparison
the enum values are reordered so the check can be performed with a
simple greater than. The alternative would be to steal a bit from the
enum but I think that's a more complex solution and not really needed

I tried this on several large .cpp files with clang-tidy and didn't
notice any performance difference. The test change is due to matchers
being sorted by their node kind.

I'm not sure about this reinterpret_cast.
We are not storing void*. We are storing 'const Node*'.
I think this way is UB.

Maybe we should modify the union and the create/getUnchecked methods to use 'const void*' as storage instead.
Instead of:

new (Result.Storage.buffer) const BaseT * (&Node);
return *cast<T>(*reinterpret_cast<BaseT *const *>(Storage));

we should do

new (Result.Storage.buffer) const void * (static_cast<const BaseT*>(&Node));
return *cast<T>(static_cast<const BaseT*>(*reinterpret_cast<const void *const *>(Storage)));

Update casts to avoid potential undefined behavior. Now every pointer goes through const void*.

maybe call getUnchecked() to avoid duplication?
Now it is getting complicated.
