Huh.  Can't see how making a copy would affect the type cache -- AFAIK nothing
adds the record to the type hash.  The array type is there (and the
FEs have some
"interesting" code regarding qualifiers on arrays).  Btw,

and this should be done automagically by build_array_type.

I'm fine with that part but the cp/tree.c part looks very generic, excluding
all records from handling.

Correct.

>  The array type is there

First the array type is constructed by ix86_build_builtin_va_list_64, 
and entered into the type cache. Then the type is assigned to 
ms_va_list_type_node.

Lateron, the ms_va_list_type_node is returned by ix86_enum_va_list, and 
c_common_nodes_and_builtin calls lang_hooks.decls.pushdecl for the node:
...
            lang_hooks.decls.pushdecl
             (build_decl (UNKNOWN_LOCATION,
                          TYPE_DECL, get_identifier (pname),
                          ptype));
...
In that process it adds a name to the type node (to be precise, in 
set_underlying_type, case DECL_IS_BUILTIN).

If it adds the name to the original type, then we have a named type in 
the type cache. If it adds the name to a copy of the type, then we have 
an unnamed type in the type cache.

Ah, right.

>  I'm fine with that part

The easiest fix seems to be to add back the build_variant_type_copy. But 
that fix doesn't agree with my understanding of how a type cache should 
work.

I'd expect for each type t, either:
- TYPE_CANONICAL (t) == NULL_TREE, or
- type_hash_canon (hash_code_of_type(t), t) == TYPE_CANONICAL (t)

Am I mistaken to think that this should be an invariant, or do we 
exploit membership/non-membership of the cache to work around certain 
issues? Any comments appreciated.

 > but the cp/tree.c part looks very generic, excluding

I'm caught here between the following:
- the sysv_abi va_list attribute is marked as not affecting type
   identity, otherwise we run into the mangle.c:write_type error
   ( https://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc-patches/2016-08/msg01804.html )
- because sysv_abi va_list attribute is marked as not affecting type
   identity, when canonicalize_type_argument is called with
   __builtin_va_list, it attempts to strip the attribute from the
   underlying struct.
- when trying to construct a type variant of the struct without the
   attribute, we run into the warning (and return the type without
   the attributes stripped).

I'm not sure how this should be fixed. Silence the warning? Really strip 
the attributes?

Thanks,
- Tom

Ok, as the backend controls what name it gets assigned in enum_va_list_p
it seems to me the backend should assing the same name to the type in
the first place to avoid the inconsistency?

OTOH what set_underlying_type does for the DECL_IS_BUILTIN case is
bogus if its type is already in the type cache as that changes its hash value.
We do have a build_nonshared_array_type which ix86_build_builtin_va_list_64
could use to avoid the type cache (not sure if that would do any good to the
issue we face).

TYPE_CANONICAL isn't really related to the type cache.  type_hash_canon
is used to avoid having two copies of _exactly_ the same type (type tree nodes
are shared).

Maybe it needs to be a new "kind" of attribute then ... it's part of the type
and you can't really "strip" it.  Which is also why it is on the main variant.
So maybe we can use that fact to avoid the stripping and thus the
warning?  That is, never strip anything for the main variant?
