Request for Comments: TSRMLS_FETCH() reduction

Introduction

The purpose of RFC is to show a way to reduce several function call by avoiding useless TSRMLS_FETCH() usage on ZTS. Adding TSRMLS_CC to the memory allocation macros/function, hash api, zend_llist and streams.

Changes

See below some macros/functions will be added by the patch.

Current function/macro New function/macro
emalloc emalloc2
ecalloc ecalloc2
pemalloc pemalloc2
erealloc erealloc2
efree efree2
estrdup estrdup2
estrndup estrndup2

Profiler

Using cachegrind (valgrind –tool=cachegrind –cachegrind-out-file=profile sapi/cli/php Zend/bench.php) to see the improvement, we can see the follow differences:
