GlobalISel: Artifact combine build-vectors and unmerge into unmerge
Needs ReviewPublic

Authored by Petar.Avramovic on Sep 3 2021, 9:21 AM.



Recognize when vector could have been split to sub-vectors.
Vector source is unmerged to elements which are merged to a few
For example this happens when vector was meant to be split to sub-vectors
but there was leftover. At this point artifact combiner have already dealt
with leftover and we can continue to use sub-vectors.

Wouldn't it be simpler to check that FirstEltIdx is a multiple of DstTy.getNumElements()?


... and FirstEltIdx / DstTy.getNumElements() here.

Just use a constructor that initialized this to N copies of Res?

Needs a comment. Also is misleading. What does it mean by merge exactly? Is this supposed to cover G_CONCAT_VECTORS?

I thought that this combine could also work for scalar types but that can be added later (I did not consider how useful would it be for code that comes from llvm-ir, and it could introduce infinite loops if se do some legalization on merge/unmerge_values). "Merge" is any of the opcodes we could get when using buildMerge. Changing name since this patch and the next one only consider vectors.
