[AMDGPU] Don't handle export done when unify exit nodes

Authored by ruiling on Jul 7 2021, 11:36 PM.



This patch aims to revert the changes introduced by D70781 D71192 D76364

D70781 was introduced to fix hardware hang where we do not insert exp-
null-done for a kill inside infinit loop. At that time we have not added
exp-null-done for kill early termination, but I believe as for now, we will
always add the exp-null-done for early termination case in LaterBranchLowering.

D71192 was introduced to handle the only_kill case, which is also been
handled by the kill early termination work.

D76364 was used to fix a regression by D71192, where we cleared the done
bit of the export in the existing program and not let the normal return
block branching to the new unified return block.

With this change, we just trust frontends have setup exp-done correctly
which is true for all existing frontends. The backend only inserts
exp-null-done for the kill cases which is handled in SILateBranchLowering.cpp.

This is an alternative to D102830 ?

From my own recent work, I think this should be fine.
The only cases where a null export are "required" occur in control flow following an infinite loop, which obviously is never executed.

Adding @piotr (author of D76364) for awareness.

Yes, as I find that the frontend has been pretty aware of this hardware requirement and they have done lots of work when to insert the dummy export. So I think it is better we just let the frontend be responsible for such work. The backend is only responsible for the inserting the exp-done for early-termination-of-kill This would make the pass easy to maintain.
