[SVE][CodeGen] Lower scalable floating-point vector reductions

Authored by kmclaughlin on Dec 10 2020, 9:32 AM.



Changes in this patch:

  • Minor changes to the LowerVECREDUCE_SEQ_FADD function added by @cameron.mcinally to also work for scalable types
  • Added TableGen patterns for FP reductions with unpacked types (nxv2f16, nxv4f16 & nxv2f32)
  • Asserts added to expandFMINNUM_FMAXNUM & expandVecReduceSeq for scalable types

LGTM with one nit below...


Nit: We could conditionally avoid the call to getPackedSVEVectorVT(...) by inverting this condition and initial value of RdxVT. Something like:

EVT RdxVT = SrcVT; 
if (SrcVT.isFixedVector() || SrcVT.isInteger())
  RdxVT = getPackedSVEVectorVT(ResVT);

I also wonder if we need the isFloatingPoint()/isInteger() check at all. Is just isScalableVector() enough?

  • Reordered the condition added to LowerReductionToSVE which sets RdxVT

Hi @cameron.mcinally , I've inverted the condition as you suggested here and removed the isFloatingPoint() check. The reason I included the additional check was for UADDV, where the result type should always be nxv2i64. Though as it's the only case for scalable vectors that needs to use getPackedSVEVectorVT, I've added a check for the UADDV_PRED opcode here instead.

By getting this far we've already committed to using SVE so can this just be SrcVT.isFixedLengthVector()?


I've nothing against the current approach but there is an argument for unpacked scalable vectors to be treated more like how fixed length vectors are handled. For example we could change the current if (useSVEForFixedLengthVectorVT block to:

if (SrcVT.isFixedLengthVector()) {
    EVT ContainerVT = getContainerForFixedLengthVector(DAG, SrcVT);
    VecOp = convertToScalableVector(DAG, ContainerVT, VecOp);
} else if (!isPackedVectorType(SrcVT)) {
    EVT ContainerVT = getPackedSVEVectorVT(DAG, SrcVT);
    VecOp = DAG.getNode(AArch64ISD::REINTERPRET_CAST, dl, ContainerVT, VecOp);

That way the remainder of the function remains as is and you don't need to change because these nodes no longer have to worry about unpacked types. The same argument applies to the ordered reductions as well.

As I say, I'm happy either way, so just throwing it out there. What do you think?

Actually I retract this. getPredicateForVector doesn't quite work the way we'll need it to. It's something to consider for the future, perhaps as part of a larger effort to remove the need to support unpacked vector types during isel.
