[misched] Extend scheduler to handle unsupported features

Authored by sdardis on May 23 2016, 6:31 AM.



Currently isComplete = 1 requires that every instruction must
be described, declared unsupported or marked as having no
scheduling information for a processor.

For some backends such as MIPS, this requirement entails
long regex lists of instructions that are unsupported.

This patch teaches Tablegen to skip over instructions that
are associated with unsupported feature when checking if the
scheduling model is complete.

Patch by Daniel Sanders

Modification for checking for the existence of the predicate
done by myself.

Andy, would you be able to take a look at this or suggest someone who could?


This seems like a useful thing to have, but I have some comments.


Needs a comment describing what this class is for.


What exactly is Predicates? The name 'Predicates' and the comment for UnsupportedFeaturesDefs which says "unsupported feature combinations" suggests a list of some kind, but isUnsupported looks through each element of the Predicates list of an instruction and compares its name against this Predicates string, which would mean that Predicates is actually just a single predicate name, and collectProcUnsupportedFeatures also looks like it expects it to be a single predicate name.

Either way, perhaps also change to a list<Predicate> or Predicate (depending on if this is meant to be a list or not) instead of a string, as that way you can remove the code in collectProcUnsupportedFeatures that checks if it's a predicate that exists.

Matthias investigated this very recently, I think he should make a decision on the patch.

This is a nice addition.

As John Brawn already said the additions to need to be better documented (describe the behaviour and ideally also show a short example). Why wasn't this added as a list<Predicate> UnsupportedPredicates; field to SchedMachineModel? Defining unrelated UnsupportedFeatures entities with a string seems odd.

Just commit this unrelated trivial change independently of this patch/review.


You can use a range based for here.

sdardis removed rL LLVM as the repository for this revision.

Added documentation.
Reworked UnsupportedFeature class into a list of predicates as a member of SchedMachineModel. This massively simplified collectProcUnsupportedFeatures().
Added a note to checkCompleteness() for this feature.
