[VPlan][NFC] Introduce constructor for VPIteration

Authored by david-arm on Jan 29 2021, 5:24 AM.



This patch adds constructors to VPIteration as a cleaner way of
initialising the struct and replaces existing constructions of
the form:

{Part, Lane}


VPIteration(Part, Lane)

This refactoring will be required in a later patch that adds more
members and functions to VPIteration.

Just an observation for this patch in isolation: Writing {Part, Lane} would still cause the new constructor of VPIteration to be called, so this would be an unnecessary change. But given the following patch adds another operand, using VPIteration explicitly helps clarify the code.


isFirstIteration might be more applicable, especially given that in D95139 it also needs to look for the lane kind.

From what I can see, most uses of VPIteration() in this patch are where it explicitly tries to get the first iteration. I think it's better to drop the implicit '0, 0' constructor, so that all VPIteration objects are explicitly constructed with a specific lane and part. Perhaps you can add a named method to return the first lane, e.g.

static VPIteration getFirstLane() { return VPIteration(0, 0); }

I also think it's better to just explicitly instantiate the VPIteration, rather than having the default constructor defaulting to the first lane. Not sure about adding a helper, because VPIteration(0, 0) is shorter than VPIteration::getFirstLane and as explicit, especially because all other places also pass lane & part explicitly.

Hi @sdesmalen, hope you don't mind but I chose to go with @fhahn's suggestion of just using VPIteration(0, 0)

Sure I'm happy with that.
