[mlir] Add RuntimeVerifiableOpInterface and transform

Authored by springerm on Nov 23 2022, 7:31 AM.



Static op verification cannot detect cases where an op is valid at compile time but may be invalid at runtime.

An example of such an op is memref::ExpandShapeOp.

Invalid at compile time: memref.expand_shape %m [[0, 1]] : memref<11xf32> into memref<2x5xf32>

Valid at compile time (because we do not know any better): memref.expand_shape %m [[0, 1]] : memref<?xf32> into memref<?x5xf32>. This op may or may not be valid at runtime depending on the runtime shape of %m.

Invalid runtime ops such as the one above are hard to debug because they can crash the program execution at a seemingly unrelated position or (even worse) compute an invalid result without crashing.

This revision adds a new op interface RuntimeVerifiableOpInterface that can be implemented by ops that provide additional runtime verification. Such runtime verification can be computationally expensive, so it is only generated on an opt-in basis by running -generate-runtime-verification. A simple runtime verifier for memref::ExpandShapeOp is provided as an example.

This looks like something that needs an RFC. I'd like to see a post on discourse proposing something here.

Fine with me, @rriddle has the RFC been discussed enough to satisfy your block?


you depend on cf as well here...


Just a nit, but does getOperation()->walk([&](RuntimeVerifiableOpInterface verifiableOp) work?

Yes it does

Looks reasonable to me!


Why not just create the builder here? I don't think you save much by creating the builder outside.
