PDL patterns are now supported via a new PDLPatternModule class. This class contains a ModuleOp with the pdl::PatternOp operations representing the patterns, as well as a collection of registered C++ functions for native constraints/creations/rewrites/etc. that may be invoked via the pdl patterns. Instances of this class are added to an OwningRewritePatternList in the same fashion as C++ RewritePatterns, i.e. via the insert method.
The PDL bytecode is an in-memory representation of the PDL interpreter dialect that can be efficiently interpreted/executed. The representation of the bytecode boils down to a code array(for opcodes/memory locations/etc) and a memory buffer(for storing attributes/operations/values/any other data necessary). The bytecode operations are effectively a 1-1 mapping to the PDLInterp dialect operations, with a few exceptions in cases where the in-memory representation of the bytecode can be more efficient than the MLIR representation. For example, a generic AreEqual bytecode op can be used to represent AreEqualOp, CheckAttributeOp, and CheckTypeOp.
The execution of the bytecode is split into two phases: matching and rewriting. When matching, all of the matched patterns are collected to avoid the overhead of re-running parts of the matcher. These matched patterns are then considered alongside the native C++ patterns, which rewrite immediately in-place via RewritePattern::matchAndRewrite, for the given root operation. When a PDL pattern is matched and has the highest benefit, it is passed back to the bytecode to execute its rewriter.
