Commit Message

Tom Tromey Jan. 1, 2021, 9:46 p.m.
This adds an expr::operation_up to struct expression, and then
modifies various parts of GDB to use this member when it is non-null.
The list of such spots was a bit surprising to me, and found only
after writing most of the code and then noticing what no longer
compiled.

In a few spots, new accessor methods are added to operation
subclasses, so that code that dissects an expression will work with
the new scheme.

After this change, code that constructs an expression can be switched
to the new form without breaking.
