Mark MergedLoadStoreMotion as not preserving MemDep results

Authored by dotdash on Feb 12 2018, 3:04 AM.



MemDep caches results that signify that a dependence is non-local, and
there is currently no way to invalidate such cache entries.
Unfortunately, when MLSM sinks a store that can result in a non-local
dependence becoming a local one, and then MemDep gives wrong answers.
The easiest way out here is to just say that MLSM does indeed not
preserve MemDep results.

I think this Is in line with what Gerolf had in mind, but I'll let him sign off this one.

Hi Gerolf,

I just wanted to check if you could have a look at this patch.


Yes, this LGTM. I could not find a way to perform updates properly in the example. If recomputing the dependencies results in a compile-time issue we will have to dig deeper into MemDep.

Thanks for your fix + patience!
