If required, we can add that or require the `__kmpc_target_region_kernel_init` implementation to store the values in the `ident_t`. Regardless, we do not want to hide the variables in the `ident_t` because that would result in worse analysis results and cause optimizations to be harder. The main point of all these changes is, after all, to make optimizations easy. Given that we expect these functions to be inlined, there is also no harm done wrt. runtime costs.
This is why we used them. Those `ident_t`s are constant and it allows us to perform an additional optimization in the functions, that do not have `isSPMDMpde` and `RequiresFullRuntime`. Because of this parameter, we gained a significant performance boost. LLVM knows how to deal with the structures, don't worry about the optimization.
