[MemCpyOpt] Port to MemorySSA. Disabled by default.
Needs ReviewPublic

Authored by bryant on Nov 16 2016, 3:27 AM.



This creates a MemorySSA-backed analogue of MemCpyOpt that is disabled by
default. It can be enabled by passing to opt either its pass-specific flag
(-memcpyopt-mssa) or a force flag (e.g., -O3 -mco-mssa).

In order to facilitate code review and correctness checking, the changes have
been made to resemble as closely as possible the pattern matching and
transformation logic of the legacy pass. In particular, non-local results from
MemorySSAWalker::getClobberingMemoryAccess/getCMA are ignored since the
MemDep version can only see patterns within a single block. The idea is to land
this patch first before adding back non-locality and other more sophisticated

FileCheck output of both versions (should, and do) closely match each other.
This can be verified by first applying the patch and then:

# refresh the FileCheck results for pertinent .ll tests
$ for chk in `grep -r -l MCO-MSSA test/`; do python util/ --tool=opt $chk; done

# verify that results are identical
$ for chk in `grep -r -l MCO-MSSA test/`; do python $chk; done

# the verifier
$ cat
Checks if FileChecks of both labels are identical.

Forgot to mention that this depends on:

  • The upward AccessList splice defined in D26661 and used by moveUp,
  • D26631 (NFC), which sets up the FileChecks for the legacy MemCpyOpt, and
  • the instructionClobbersQuery patch at D26659 in order to get the right clobbers for either source of dest memcpy locs.

EDIT: Clickables.

Holding off on this until I can get non-local DSE running, since non-local MCO is useless without that.

(random drive-by)


bool = false? enum class FTW.


Oxygen comments usually have triple slash at the beginning.


Drop StartPtrUser - (even if it matches the surrounding style).


Use the enum class here too.
