/* GDB stores expressions in the form of a flattened tree (struct
expression), so we just walk that tree and generate agent bytecodes
as we go along.
GDB's normal evaluation uses struct value, which contains the
expression's value as well as its address or the register it came
from. The `+' operator uses the value, whereas the unary `&'
operator will use the address portion. The `=' operator will use
the address or register number of its left hand side.
The issues are different when generating agent bytecode. Given a
variable reference expression, we should not necessarily generate
code to fetch its value, because the next operator may be `=' or
unary `&'. Instead, when we recurse on a subexpression, we
indicate whether we want that expression to produce an lvalue or an
rvalue. If we requested an lvalue, then the recursive call tells
us whether it generated code to compute an address on the stack, or
whether the lvalue lives in a register.
The `axs' prefix here means `agent expression, static', because
this is all static analysis of the expression, i.e. analysis which
doesn't depend on the contents of memory and registers. */

enum axs_lvalue_kind
/* We generated code to compute the subexpression's value.
Constants and arithmetic operators yield this. */
/* We generated code to yield the subexpression's value's address on
the top of the stack. If the caller needs an rvalue, it should
call require_rvalue to produce the rvalue from this address. */
/* We didn't generate any code, and the stack is undisturbed,
because the subexpression's value lives in a register; u.reg is
the register number. If the caller needs an rvalue, it should
call require_rvalue to produce the rvalue from this register
number. */
/* Structure describing what we got from a subexpression. Think of
this as parallel to value.h's enum lval_type, except that we're
describing a value which will exist when the expression is
evaluated in the future, not a value we have in our hand. */

enum axs_lvalue_kind kind; /* see above */

this is the type of the value itself; the value on the stack is a
"pointer to" an object of this type. */

/* Given a GDB expression EXPR, return bytecode to trace its value.
The result will use the `trace' and `trace_quick' bytecodes to
record the value of all memory touched by the expression, and leave
no values on the stack. The caller can then use the ax_reqs
function to discover which registers the expression uses. */
