[InstCombine] eliminate a pointer cast around insertelement

Authored by spatel on Aug 10 2020, 6:32 AM.



I'm not sure if this solves PR46839 completely, but reducing the casting should help:

I have not dealt much with pointer casts, so if anyone sees any corner-cases to test/avoid, please comment. Alive2 does not appear to support these ops.

Looks good to me. You already test the zext/trunc cases. I think this fold is also not problematic wrt

If we're eliminating an inttoptr/ptrtoint pair, do we need to check that the pointer type is large enough to hold the integer type? (I don't know how likely this is to come up given instcombine canonicalizes the casts, but better to be safe, I think.)

I agree this transformation is safe modulo the pointer size check. It should be fine to fold p2i(i2p i) -> i when the size of pointer is large enough.

Patch updated:
Given the transform above this one and the type checks included there and here, I think we can assert that sizes match. Let me know if that handles the possible problem patterns that we must avoid.

Oh, I see, the transform to canonicalize the integer width always runs before. LGTM

LGTM, thank you!
