Description

[ThinLTO] Add Visibility bits to GlobalValueSummary::GVFlags

Imported functions and variable get the visibility from the module supplying the
definition. However, non-imported definitions do not get the visibility from
(ELF) the most constraining visibility among all modules (Mach-O) the visibility
of the prevailing definition.

This patch

  • adds visibility bits to GlobalValueSummary::GVFlags
  • computes the result visibility and propagates it to all definitions

Protected/hidden can imply dso_local which can enable some optimizations (this
is stronger than GVFlags::DSOLocal because the implied dso_local can be
leveraged for ELF -shared while default visibility dso_local has to be cleared
for ELF -shared).

Note: we don't have summaries for declarations, so for ELF if a declaration has
the most constraining visibility, the result visibility may not be that one.
