[AMDGPU] Avoid sorting stalls in regbank-reassign

This is the slowest operation in the already slow pass.
Instead of sorting just put a stall list into an ordered

Is push_front more expensive if we are calling it for every candidate?
Probably just always push_back?


Make this an assertion combined with other change to collectCandidate suggested below?


Presumably we don't need to do this if we are not using weights at all (i.e. no sorting)?
Perhaps "if (UseWeight)" all of this?

It's a list, cost of insertion is O(1).


Good point. It is cheap, but still.

Actually since it is cheap it makes sense to keep loop depth weight. The operand forwarding part is expensive, but the sort is not. I will experiment tomorrow and return sort and MLI part, just disable operand scan part.

Hm... On practice that is std::list::sort() takes most of the time. Maybe it is vaible to change the list to a vector of lists, where vector is sorted by equal weights.

In fact the slowest part was sorting. I just have changed data structure to avoid sorting. Weight calculation itself turns to be not that much expensive.

This almost halves time the pass takes.
