[mlir] Add VerifyOpBeforeTraits trait
Changes PlannedPublic

Authored by springerm on Nov 16 2022, 9:12 AM.



Add a new "marker" trait that allows users to specify the order in which ops are verified.

By default: verify traits, then the op
When VerifyOpBeforeTraits is attached: verify op, then the traits

VerifyOpBeforeTraits is useful when an interface verifier calls an InterfaceMethod. Without VerifyOpBeforeTraits, the op was not verified yet (and could be broken), so calling an InterfaceMethod is dangerous and could crash.

This doesn't really feel like the right direction. It's really fragile to flip verification either before or after the operation. We often have "core" traits that we expect to be verified before we ever get to the operations "verify" method. A better path forward would be evolving the trait verification model, which there have been discussions of in the past on discourse (can't find the thread right now).

Agree with River: this seems like a workaround to me.
Here is the previous thinking about this: ; can you position your issue with respect to this?
