NVPTX: Avoid implicit iterator conversions, NFC

Authored by dexonsmith on Jul 8 2016, 12:21 PM.



Avoid implicit conversions from MachineInstrBundleInstr to MachineInstr*
in the MSP430 backend, mainly by preferring MachineInstr& over
MachineInstr* when a pointer isn't nullable and using range-based for

There was one piece of questionable code in
NVPTXInstrInfo::AnalyzeBranch, where a condition checked a pointer
converted from an iterator for nullptr. Since this case is impossible
(moreover, the code above guarantees that the iterator is valid), I
removed the check when I changed the pointer to a reference.

Despite that case, there should be no functionality change here.

Otherwise looks good to me. This is a simplification, so I like it on face, but do you also expect this change (when made everywhere in llvm) to have performance implications?
