[NFC][Coroutines] Use a reverse post-order to guide the computation about cross suspend infomation to reach a fixed point faster.

Authored by witstorm95 on Aug 1 2023, 10:33 PM.




Propagate cross suspend point information along reverse post-order.
It does not modify the original function, just selects a better traversal order.

This reads much better! Thanks.

How long would the patch compile for the case?

#include <cassert>
#include <cstdio>
#include <cstdlib>

int main(int argc, char **argv) {
  assert(argc == 2);
  int n = atoi(argv[1]);
  printf("#include <cstdio>\n");
  printf("#include <vector>\n");
  printf("#include \"task.h\"\n");
  printf("extern bool count(int);\n");
  printf("task t() {\n");
  printf("std::vector<int> v(%d);\n", n);
  printf("int val = 0;\n");
  printf("for (int i = 0; i < %d; ++i) {;\n", n);
  for (int i = 1; i <= n; i++) printf("if (count(v[i])) val++;\n");
  printf("printf(\"%%d\\n\", val);\n");
  return 0;

The comment reads slightly odd. Also I feel it may not be necessary to require RPO in computeBlockData since it simply iterates the given range. So may be the following signature may be better:

template <bool Initialize = false, class BBRangeTy>
bool computeBlockData(const BBRangeTy &BBRange);

Maybe it is better to say: it is considered to be faster to use RPO traversal for forward-edges dataflow analysis. It may be best to cite this but this may not be required.

Accept these suggestions.

LGTM then. Thanks. Let's wait for @MatzeB.

This revision is now accepted and ready to land.Aug 2 2023, 12:00 AM

Just put ReversePostOrderTraversal<Function *>& here. Adding a template parameter that only ever gets the same type just adds needless complexity.


Do we actually need B.Changed? Seems to me we only write and immediately read form it here, so a local variable would do instead?

MatzeB added inline comments.Aug 2 2023, 2:11 PM

Oh guess B.Changed is read here. But how does this work? Isn't Changed always false after the Initialize == true round? Wouldn't we just skip processing any block in the 2nd round then because of this?

MatzeB added inline comments.Aug 2 2023, 4:18 PM

Well we should definitely check the predecessors even in Initialization now, in an RPO order we should have nearly all of them computed already (everything except for backedges).

@MatzeB I'm sorry it took so long to get back to you as I have no time to do this.

As you can see, there still has many redundant operations. Just like the last iteration is to check whether it has reached a fixed point and etc.

If we want to remove these redundant operation, there still are ways to do it. I means we can do it based on your previous patch( I will give your some advises to improve on your patch. Let we jump to D156835.


I guess use BBRangeTy just want to make computeBlockData more general. It means you can specify another BBRange to guide the computation and no need to modificy here again.


Every block has marked Changed as true before initial iteration. So we don't need to check if the predecessors has changed(Always changed) in initialization.


In the initial iteration(Initialize == true), we will not update Changed.

Yes, but it is simple and fast enough. Hence I abandoned my other patch and hoped we can go just go with this. It nicely fixes the original issue and similar programs.

While a solution based on a priority queue should be better when programs become arbitrarily large, I'm not convinced the added complexity will help common "normal" sized functions and my main worry is that it adds more complexity IMO.

LGTM from me on this patch.


Yes, it is more general. But more general is not automatically better especially if the chance of there ever being another type is really low. You have to consider that what mostly happens to code is that it is read by other people! What happens less often is that the code is written and even less often that the type is changed. In this case I think a fixed type helps readability (at the tiny cost of having to type more when we actually want to change the type in the future).

Yeah, I think the current patch is good enough. (I am not against further optimizations). Also Clang/LLVM prefers small changes than large changes. And it is should be rare for a program contains 100000+ co_await in practice.

I'd like to land this patch later.

Remove template parameter BBRangeTy.
