Macros

Implement HashStable by just calling Hash::hash().

Structs

Controls what data we do or do not hash. Whenever a HashStable implementation caches its result, it needs to include HashingControls as part of the key, to ensure that it does not produce an incorrect result (for example, using a Fingerprint produced while hashing Spans when a Fingerprint without Spans is being requested)

When hashing something that ends up affecting properties like symbol names, we want these symbol names to be calculated independently of other factors like what architecture you’re compiling from.

Traits

Something that implements HashStable<CTX> can be hashed in a way that is stable across multiple compilation sessions.

Implement this for types that can be turned into stable keys like, for example, for DefId that can be converted to a DefPathHash. This is used for bringing maps into a predictable order before hashing them.
