Cache projections in trans #35761
This introduces a cache for the results of projection and normalization in trans. This is in addition to the existing cache that is per-inference-context. Trans is an easy place to put the cache because we are guaranteed not to have type parameters and also we don't expect any failures or inference variables, so there is no need to cache or follow-up on obligations that come along with. (As evidenced by the fact that this particular code would panic if any error occurred.)
That said, I am not sure this is 100% the best place for it; I sort of wanted a cache like we have in the fulfillment context for global names; but that cache only triggers when all subsequent obligations are satisfied, and since projections don't have an entry in the obligation jungle there is no easy place to put it. I considered caching both the result and obligations globally, but haven't really tried implementing it. It might be a good next step.
Regardless, this cache seems to have no real effect on bootstrap time (maybe a slight improvement), but on the futures.rs test case I was looking at, it improves performance quite a bit:
