Subject[PATCH v6 02/21] scripts/gdb: Add cache for type objects
Date
Type lookups are very slow in gdb-python which is often noticeable when
iterating over a number of objects. Introduce the helper class
CachedType that keeps a reference to a gdb.Type object but also
refreshes it after an object file has been loaded.
