[X86] Teach fastisel to handle zext/sext i8->i16 and sext i1->i8/i16/i32/i64

Authored by craig.topper on Aug 30 2017, 5:55 PM.



ZExt and SExt from i8 to i16 aren't implemented in the autogenerated fast isel table because normal isel does a zext/sext to 32-bits and a subreg extract to avoid a partial register write or false dependency on the upper bits of the destination. This means without handling in fast isel we end up triggering a fast isel abort.

We had no custom sign extend handling at all so while I was there I went ahead and implemented sext i1->i8/i16/i32/i64 which was also missing. This generates an i1->i8 sign extend using a mask with 1, then an 8-bit negate, then continues with a sext from i8. A better sequence would be a wider and/negate, but would require more custom code.

Fast isel tests are a mess and I couldn't find a good home for the tests so I created a new one.

should this check ZExtReg and not ResultReg?

Need to zero extend -> Need to sign extend

Address review comments. Add in the zext change which I think i left out because it was in a differe commit in my work area.
