/// This class implements a layout algorithm for globals referenced by bit sets
/// that tries to keep members of small bit sets together. This can
/// significantly reduce bit set sizes in many cases.
/// It works by assembling fragments of layout from sets of referenced globals.
/// Each set of referenced globals causes the algorithm to create a new
/// fragment, which is assembled by appending each referenced global in the set
/// into the fragment. If a referenced global has already been referenced by an
/// fragment created earlier, we instead delete that fragment and append its
/// contents into the fragment we are assembling.
/// By starting with the smallest fragments, we minimize the size of the
/// fragments that are copied into larger fragments. This is most intuitively
/// thought about when considering the case where the globals are virtual tables
/// and the bit sets represent their derived classes: in a single inheritance
/// hierarchy, the optimum layout would involve a depth-first search of the
/// class hierarchy (and in fact the computed layout ends up looking a lot like
/// a DFS), but a naive DFS would not work well in the presence of multiple
/// inheritance. This aspect of the algorithm ends up fitting smaller
/// hierarchies inside larger ones where that would be beneficial.
/// For example, consider this class hierarchy:
/// A       B
///   \   / | \
///     C   D   E
/// We have five bit sets: bsA (A, C), bsB (B, C, D, E), bsC (C), bsD (D) and
/// bsE (E). If we laid out our objects by DFS traversing B followed by A, our
/// layout would be {B, C, D, E, A}. This is optimal for bsB as it needs to
/// cover the only 4 objects in its hierarchy, but not for bsA as it needs to
/// cover 5 objects, i.e. the entire layout. Our algorithm proceeds as follows:
/// Add bsC, fragments {{C}}
/// Add bsD, fragments {{C}, {D}}
/// Add bsE, fragments {{C}, {D}, {E}}
/// Add bsA, fragments {{A, C}, {D}, {E}}
/// Add bsB, fragments {{B, A, C, D, E}}
/// This layout is optimal for bsA, as it now only needs to cover two (i.e. 3
/// fewer) objects, at the cost of bsB needing to cover 1 more object.
/// The bit set lowering pass assigns an object index to each object that needs
/// to be laid out, and calls addFragment for each bit set passing the object
/// indices of its referenced globals. It then assembles a layout from the
/// computed layout in the Fragments field.
struct GlobalLayoutBuilder {
  /// The computed layout. Each element of this vector contains a fragment of
  /// layout (which may be empty) consisting of object indices.

/// This class is used to build a byte array containing overlapping bit sets. By
/// loading from indexed offsets into the byte array and applying a mask, a
/// program can test bits from the bit set with a relatively short instruction
/// sequence. For example, suppose we have 15 bit sets to lay out:
/// A (16 bits), B (15 bits), C (14 bits), D (13 bits), E (12 bits),
/// F (11 bits), G (10 bits), H (9 bits), I (7 bits), J (6 bits), K (5 bits),
/// L (4 bits), M (3 bits), N (2 bits), O (1 bit)
/// These bits can be laid out in a 16-byte array like this:
///       Byte Offset
///     0123456789ABCDEF
/// Bit
/// For example, to test bit X of A, we evaluate ((bits[X] & 1) != 0), or to
/// test bit X of I, we evaluate ((bits[9 + X] & 0x80) != 0). This can be done
/// in 1-2 machine instructions on x86, or 4-6 instructions on ARM.
/// This is a byte array, rather than (say) a 2-byte array or a 4-byte array,
/// because for one thing it gives us better packing (the more bins there are,
/// the less evenly they will be filled), and for another, the instruction
/// sequences can be slightly shorter, both on x86 and ARM.
