Variants

Item(WithOptConstParam<DefId>)

A user-defined callable item.

This includes:

  • fn items
  • closures
  • generators

Intrinsic(DefId)

An intrinsic fn item (with "rust-intrinsic" or "platform-intrinsic" ABI).

Alongside Virtual, this is the only InstanceDef that does not have its own callable MIR. Instead, codegen and const eval “magically” evaluate calls to intrinsics purely in the caller.

VtableShim(DefId)

<T as Trait>::method where method receives unsizeable self: Self (part of the unsized_locals feature).

The generated shim will take Self via *mut Self - conceptually this is &owned Self - and dereference the argument to call the original function.

ReifyShim(DefId)

fn() pointer where the function itself cannot be turned into a pointer.

One example is <dyn Trait as Trait>::fn, where the shim contains a virtual call, which codegen supports only via a direct call to the <dyn Trait as Trait>::fn instance (an InstanceDef::Virtual).

Another example is functions annotated with #[track_caller], which must have their implicit caller location argument populated for a call. Because this is a required part of the function’s ABI but can’t be tracked as a property of the function pointer, we use a single “caller location” (the definition of the function itself).

FnPtrShim(DefIdTy<'tcx>)

<fn() as FnTrait>::call_* (generated FnTrait implementation for fn() pointers).

DefId is FnTrait::call_*.

Virtual(DefIdusize)

Dynamic dispatch to <dyn Trait as Trait>::fn.

This InstanceDef does not have callable MIR. Calls to Virtual instances must be codegen’d as virtual calls through the vtable.

If this is reified to a fn pointer, a ReifyShim is used (see ReifyShim above for more details on that).

ClosureOnceShim

Fields

call_once: DefId
track_caller: bool

<[FnMut closure] as FnOnce>::call_once.

The DefId is the ID of the call_once method in FnOnce.

DropGlue(DefIdOption<Ty<'tcx>>)

core::ptr::drop_in_place::<T>.

The DefId is for core::ptr::drop_in_place. The Option<Ty<'tcx>> is either Some(T), or None for empty drop glue.

CloneShim(DefIdTy<'tcx>)

Compiler-generated <T as Clone>::clone implementation.

For all types that automatically implement Copy, a trivial Clone impl is provided too. Additionally, arrays, tuples, and closures get a Clone shim even if they aren’t Copy.

The DefId is for Clone::clone, the Ty is the type T with the builtin Clone impl.

Implementations

Returns the DefId of instances which might not require codegen locally.

Returns true if the LLVM version of this instance is unconditionally marked with inline. This implies that a copy of this instance is generated in every codegen unit. Note that this is only a hint. See the documentation for generates_cgu_internal_copy for more information.

Returns true if the machine code for this instance is instantiated in each codegen unit that references it. Note that this is only a hint! The compiler can globally decide to not do this in order to speed up compilation. CGU-internal copies are only exist to enable inlining. If inlining is not performed (e.g. at -Copt-level=0) then the time for generating them is wasted and it’s better to create a single copy with external linkage.

Returns true when the MIR body associated with this instance should be monomorphized by its users (e.g. codegen or miri) by substituting the substs from Instance (see Instance::substs_for_mir_body).

Otherwise, returns false only for some kinds of shims where the construction of the MIR body should perform necessary substitutions.

Traverses the type in question, typically by calling try_fold_with on each field/element. This is true even for types of interest such as Ty. This should only be called within TypeFolder methods, when non-custom traversals are desired for types of interest. Read more

Returns true if self has any late-bound regions that are either bound by binder or bound by some binder outside of binder. If binder is ty::INNERMOST, this indicates whether there are any late-bound regions that appear free. Read more

Returns true if this self has any regions that escape binder (and hence are not bound by it). Read more

“Free” regions in this context means that it has any region that is not (a) erased or (b) late-bound. Read more

True if there are any un-erased free regions.

Indicates whether this value references only ‘global’ generic parameters that are the same regardless of what fn we are in. This is used for caching. Read more

True if there are any late-bound regions

Indicates whether this value still has parameters/placeholders/inference variables which could be replaced later, in a way that would change the results of impl specialization. Read more

This method turns the parameters of a DepNodeConstructor into an opaque Fingerprint to be used in DepNode. Not all DepNodeParams support being turned into a Fingerprint (they don’t need to if the corresponding DepNode is anonymous). Read more

This method tries to recover the query key from the given DepNode, something which is needed when forcing DepNodes during red-green evaluation. The query system will only call this method if fingerprint_style() is not FingerprintStyle::Opaque. It is always valid to return None here, in which case incremental compilation will treat the query as having changed instead of forcing it. Read more
