Not clear that OrderedBasicBlock will help here directly. I think you really want two maps:

  1. Instruction* -> unsigned (for ordering)
  2. Instruction* -> Instruction* (or unsigned) (for the next call that might throw)

Why not just collect the maps above (where you currently set MayThrow), and then answer the question precisely? I think it is likely I'll see performance regressions from this if we over-approximate.

Inst here should really be the first call that might throw, right?

Yes, I can do something like that. Not sure the second map is necessary: I think we just need the most recently seen unwinding call in the block?

867 ↗(On Diff #59680)

Yes; I would probably call it the most recently seen call that might throw.

Ah, yes. You're right. Thanks!

  • [DSE] Precisely track instructions which may unwind.

Updated. Unfortunately, the patch gets a lot more complicated because of the need to avoid iterator invalidation. On the plus side, I think I fixed a couple latent iterator invalidation bugs.

The mechanical changes to deal with the iterators LGTM. I'll defer to Hal or someone else to approve the changes to remove stores made live by a call which unwinds.

Should we keep the comments from line 54?

837 ↗(On Diff #59689)

pre-increment InstrIndex.

892 ↗(On Diff #59689)

Space between 'assert' and right paren.

Perhaps, a clang-format?

Hi @eli.friedman,
I believe I've hijacked all I'm going to, so you might consider rebasing the patch on top of the fresh DSE updates. Hopefully, this patch is now fairly simple and thanks for your assistance.

Rebase on top of trunk.

(and fwiw, memdep does not consider maythrow, only aliasing. AFAIK, it will never return a maythrow call as a dep unless it thinks, conservatively, that it aliases the pointer. It mostly does think that when we don't have good call mod/ref info, but when we do, it happily does not return maythrow calls as deps)

PointerMayBeCapturedBefore is an O(N) call, at best.
It even says " This routine can be expensive, so consider
/// caching the results. "

Can we really not do better?

828 ↗(On Diff #59689)

Is this different from orderedbasicblock?

InstrOrdering is basically an OrderedBasicBlock, I guess... I think I'd need to modify the interface a bit for this exact use to deal with modifications.

1073 ↗(On Diff #65022)

We could try to cache the result, I guess... but I don't think we would end up hitting any such cache very often, considering that you can only reuse the cache for exactly the same inputs.

I could use PointerMayBeCaptured instead. Not quite as strong, but I guess the extra accuracy might not be that useful (and it's easier to cache, if necessary).

Don't use PointerMayBeCapturedBefore. Add some comments.
