Disable indvar widening if arithmetics on the wider type are more expensive

Authored by jingyue on Nov 9 2014, 4:41 PM.



We should not widen an indvar if arithmetics on the wider indvar are more
expensive than those on the narrower indvar. For instance, although
NVPTX64 treats i64 as a legal type, an ADD on i64 is twice as expensive
as that on i32, because the hardware needs to simulate a 64-bit integer
using two 32-bit integers.

This patch

  1. adds a NVPTX-specific TargetTransformInfo with specialized computing

of cost of arithmetic instructions;

  1. compares the cost of arithmetics on the wider type and that on the

narrower type before widening an indvar.

Fixes PR21148.

This looks like a good start to me, but I'm not an expert on IndVarSimplify.


I'm not opposed to the style change, but it is extra noise in the patch.

Thanks Tom and Justin.

I split this patch to D6195 and D6196 to be clearer. Justin, I assume D6195 looks good to you too because it's part of this patch.
