There are two things under my general consensus for this:

1. would be to re-implement dfrontend/todt.c entirely, so that we
produce GCC trees directly from the toDt routines, rather than the
dmd's intermediate backend representation and later blindly converting
to GCC after all information about the type size is finalised.

2. would be to review the current implementation of how we record
inheritance in classes and fix it up where possible to utilise the
already existing macros in place to hold information about type
inheritance and basetypes for the backend to better understand what
information we are sending it.
