And another step towards transforms not introducing inttoptr and/or
ptrtoint casts that weren't there already.
As we've been establishing (see D88788/D88789), if there is a int<->ptr cast,
it basically must stay as-is, we can't do much with it.
I've looked, and the most source of new such casts being introduces,
as far as i can tell, is this transform, which, ironically,
tries to reduce count of casts..
On vanilla llvm test-suite + RawSpeed, @ `-O3`, this results in
-33.58% less `IntToPtr`s and +76.20% more `PtrToInt`s; however just on RawSpeed,(19014 -> 12629)
where i know there are basically none `IntToPtr` in the original source codeand +76.20% more `PtrToInt`s (18589 -> 32753),
which is an increase of +20.69% in total.
However just on RawSpeed, where i know there are basically
none `IntToPtr` in the original source code,
this results in -99.27% less `IntToPtr`s (2724 - 2704 -> 20)
and +82.92% more `PtrToInt`s (4513 -> 8255).
which is again an increase of 14.34% in total.
So itTo me this does seem like the step in the right direction.,
we end up with strictly less `IntToPtr`, but strictly more `PtrToInt`,
which seems like a reasonable trade-off.
I'm not presently sure what preparatory fixes are needed before this though.
should be taught about this, yes)
