That's actually the whole declaration. It defines a tablegen class with no fields and is only really there to allow tablegen to type check CallingConv's argument.

There's no correspondence with C++. Tablegen is essentially a database of records that the llvm-tblgen command can use to generate other files (usually C++). In this case, the code generator is in utils/TableGen/CallingConvEmitter.cpp and you'll see checks like 'Action->isSubClassOf("CCAssignToReg")' for each of CCAction's subclasses.

Hope that helps
