//
// This file declares the GCFunctionInfo and GCModuleInfo classes, which are
// used as a communication channel from the target code generator to the target
// garbage collectors. This interface allows code generators and garbage
// collectors to be developed independently.
//
// The GCFunctionInfo class logs the data necessary to build a type accurate
// stack map. The code generator outputs:
//
//   - Safe points as specified by the GCStrategy's NeededSafePoints.
//   - Stack offsets for GC roots, as specified by calls to llvm.gcroot
//
// As a refinement, liveness analysis calculates the set of live roots at each
// safe point. Liveness analysis is not presently performed by the code
// generator, so all roots are assumed live.
//
// GCModuleInfo simply collects GCFunctionInfo instances for each Function as
// they are compiled. This accretion is necessary for collectors which must emit
// a stack map for the compilation unit as a whole. Therefore, GCFunctionInfo
// outlives the MachineFunction from which it is derived and must not refer to
// any code generator data structures.
