ARM: Enable MachineScheduler and disable PostRAScheduler for swift CPU.

Authored by MatzeB on Jun 17 2015, 11:58 AM.



This is mostly done to disable the PostRAScheduler which optimizes for
instruction latencies which isn't a good fit for out-of-order
architectures. This also allows to leave out the itinerary table in swift
in favor of the SchedModel one.

This change leads to performance improvements/regressions by as much as
10% in some benchmarks, in fact we loose 0.4% performance over the
llvm-testsuite for reasons that appear to be unknown or out of the
compilers control. rdar://20803802 documents the investigation of
these effects.

While it is probably a good idea to perform the same switch for the
other ARM out-of-order CPUs, I limited this change to swift as I cannot
perform the benchmark verification on the other CPUs.

Thank you Matthias. Sorry I dropped the review.

If you think isOutOfOrder is a useful helper, then you can just add it to the MCSchedModel interface. I don't think there's anything ARM specific about it.
