[MBFIWrapper] Add a new function getBlockProfileCount

Authored by Carrot on Sep 16 2020, 3:58 PM.



MBFIWrapper keeps track of block frequencies of newly created blocks and modified blocks, modified block frequencies should also impact block profile count. This class doesn't provide interface getBlockProfileCount, users can only use the underlying MBFI to query profile count, the underlying MBFI doesn't know the modifications made in MBFIWrapper, so it either provides stale profile count for modified block or simply crashes on new blocks.

So this patch add function getBlockProfileCount to class MBFIWrapper to handle new blocks or modified blocks.

Is it possible to add a test case?

It can be triggered by a test case in my next basic block duplication patch, because newly created basic block can cause MBFI.getBlockProfileCount crash.

It is very difficult to write a test case in current code base.

If the code reaches here, will the call simply return 0 (according to its implementation)?

See the function getBlockFreq and setBlockFreq, when code reaches here, it means MBB frequency is not changed, so its profile count is not impacted, so we can simply query the underlying MBFI for profile count.
