[InstCombine] fold min/max tree with common operand (PR35717)

Authored by spatel on Dec 27 2017, 4:14 PM.



This might be over the edge of what we want from instcombine, but I'm not sure. There is precedence for factorization transforms in instcombine for FP ops with fast-math.

I think it would take more work to add this to reassociate because that's specialized for binops, and min/max are not binops (or even single instructions). Also, I don't have evidence that larger min/max trees than this exist in real code.

In the motivating example from , we have:

int test(int xc, int xm, int xy) {
  int xk;
  if (xc < xm)
    xk = xc < xy ? xc : xy;
    xk = xm < xy ? xm : xy;
  return xk;

This patch solves that problem because we recognize more min/max patterns after rL321672

Patch updated:
I adjusted the use checks to be '<='. This accounts for non-canonical min/max patterns as seen in the motivating test (the compare operands are not the same as the select operands). So now this patch should be the last step towards solving PR35717.

If I'm right about the easy FP cases, I'd like to see those handled in follow-up. Regardless, this LGTM.

I think that you can easily handle most of the interesting FP cases by checking all of the select pattern results for NaNBehavior == SPNB_NA || NaNBehavior == SPNB_RETURNS_ANY. The other cases will require further thought (so make sure we had the correct relative ordering of all the potentially-NaN inputs).

Thanks - yes, I'm planning on that; still working on the similar FP min/max enhancement for early-cse ( D41136 ) too.
