      * lisp.h: (XVECTOR_SIZE): Remove. All uses replaced with ASIZE. · 77b37c05

      (ASIZE): Now contains previous implementation of XVECTOR_SIZE
      instead of invoking XVECTOR_SIZE.

      lisp.h: Fix a problem with aliasing and vector headers. · eab3844f
      Paul Eggert authored
      GCC 4.6.0 optimizes based on type-based alias analysis.  For
      example, if b is of type struct buffer * and v of type struct
      Lisp_Vector *, then gcc -O2 was incorrectly assuming that &b->size
      != &v->size, and therefore "v->size = 1; b->size = 2; return
      v->size;" must therefore return 1.  This assumption is incorrect
      for Emacs, since it type-puns struct Lisp_Vector * with many other
      types.  To fix this problem, this patch adds a new type struct
      vector_header that documents the constraints on layout of vectors
      and pseudovectors, and helps optimizing compilers not get fooled
      by Emacs's type punning.  It also adds the macros XSETTYPED_PVECTYPE
      XSETTYPED_PSEUDOVECTOR, TYPED_PSEUDOVECTORP, for similar reasons.
      * lisp.h (XVECTOR_SIZE): New convenience macro.  All previous uses of
      XVECTOR (foo)->size replaced to use this macro, to avoid the hassle
      of writing XVECTOR (foo)->header.size.
      (XVECTOR_HEADER_SIZE): New macro, for use in XSETPSEUDOVECTOR.
      (XSETTYPED_PVECTYPE): New macro, specifying the name of the size
      member.
      (XSETPVECTYPE): Rewrite in terms of new macro.
      (XSETPVECTYPESIZE): New macro, specifying both type and size.
      This is a bit clearer, and further avoids the possibility of
      undesirable aliasing.
      (XSETTYPED_PSEUDOVECTOR): New macro, specifying the size.
      (XSETPSEUDOVECTOR): Rewrite in terms of XSETTYPED_PSEUDOVECTOR
      and XVECTOR_HEADER_SIZE.
      (XSETSUBR): Rewrite in terms of XSETTYPED_PSEUDOVECTOR and XSIZE,
      since Lisp_Subr is a special case (no "next" field).
      (ASIZE): Rewrite in terms of XVECTOR_SIZE.
      (struct vector_header): New type.
      (TYPED_PSEUDOVECTORP): New macro, also specifying the C type of the
      object, to help avoid aliasing.
      (PSEUDOVECTORP): Rewrite in terms of TYPED_PSEUDOVECTORP.
      (SUBRP): Likewise, since Lisp_Subr is a special case.
      * lisp.h (struct Lisp_Vector, struct Lisp_Char_Table):
      (struct Lisp_Sub_Char_Table, struct Lisp_Bool_Vector):
      (struct Lisp_Hash_Table): Combine first two members into a single
      struct vector_header member.  All uses of "size" and "next" members
      changed to be "header.size" and "header.next".
      * buffer.h (struct buffer): Likewise.
      * font.h (struct font_spec, struct font_entity, struct font): Likewise.
      * frame.h (struct frame): Likewise.
      * process.h (struct Lisp_Process): Likewise.
      * termhooks.h (struct terminal): Likewise.
      * window.c (struct save_window_data, struct saved_window): Likewise.
      * window.h (struct window): Likewise.
      * alloc.c (allocate_buffer, Fmake_bool_vector, allocate_pseudovector):
      Use XSETPVECTYPESIZE, not XSETPVECTYPE, to avoid aliasing problems.
      * buffer.c (init_buffer_once): Likewise.
      * lread.c (defsubr): Use XSETTYPED_PVECTYPE, since Lisp_Subr is a
      special case.
      * process.c (Fformat_network_address): Use local var for size,
      for brevity.
