[SLP] Fix vectorization for tree with trunc to minimum required bit width.

Authored by ABataev on Jan 11 2018, 6:46 AM.



If the vectorized tree has truncate to minimum required bit width and
the vector type of the cast operation after the truncation is the same
as the vector type of the cast operands, count cost of the vector cast
operation as 0, because this cast will be later removed.
Also, if the vectorization tree root operations are integer cast operations, do not consider them as candidates for truncation. It will just create extra number of the same vector/scalar operations, which will be removed by instcombiner.

Thanks for cleaning this up.

Makes sense.

What do you mean by "top" here? Do you just mean that the initial Root should not be a cast? If so, would it be easier to check that here, rather than passing the flag in collectValuesToDemote?

Yes, it is about initial roots. The main problem here is that these roots still must be analyzeв though not considered as candidates to demote.
Meanwhile, I have a question for you. Why you try to generate sequence cast ( extractelement(<resulting_vector>)) instead of extractelement(cast(<resulting_vector>))? It produces 2 * n instructions, while the second approach will produce n + 1 instructions.

I honestly don't recall what the reason was. It probably had something to do with the way InstCombine wanted to rewrite the expression, given the trunc/ext sequence.

I think what we should really try to do is make the type truncating code in InstCombine (EvaluateInDifferentType) a utility that we can use within the vectorizers. The trunc/ext trick is very fragile. We use it here in SLP,and in two separate places in LV to type-shrink reductions and other instructions.

I'll finish taking a look at the rest of the patch shortly.
