I'd kind of like to transition to embedding the exec_node, rather than
inheriting so that we can use the types from C.

For this series, I don't even use .link from backend_instruction. I
just need to add exec_node to backend_instruction so that it has the
same structure in C as C++ (and I can access some of the fields from

I'm not sure what you mean.

I don't think it should be too difficult to switch, now that it's easy
to find the uses of the foreach* macros that cast to fs_inst or
vec4_instruction. That might actually let us do things like putting
instructions in multiple lists (one giant list, and a per-basic block
