AArch64: add support for llvm.aarch64.hint intrinsic

Authored by compnerd on Jul 6 2014, 3:09 PM.



This adds a llvm.aarch64.hint intrinsic to mirror the llvm.arm.hint in order to
support the various hint intrinsic functions in the ACLE.

Add an optional pattern field that permits the subclass to specify the pattern
that matches the selection. The intrinsic pattern is set as mayLoad, mayStore,
so overload the value for the definition of the hint instruction.

Thanks to Joey for having me retry the changing the mayLoad, mayStore properties of the hint instruction definition.

I believe modelling hints intrinsics to mayLoad and mayStore is not accurate as they don't actually load or store. Modelling as

mayLoad = ?
mayStore = ?

should be better.

I don't think the "mayLoad = ?" is any better. TableGen is still inferring "mayLoad = 1", we're just concealing that from the reader.

I think I'd go for the original code, with a comment that really these should be "mayLoad = 0" but that intrinsics' side effects aren't modelled with enough granularity for that to be possible.



Is hasSideEffects=1 not sufficient?


Unfortunately, it doesn't. tablgen infers that mayLoad and mayStore should be 1 for the pattern, but the instruction is not mayLoad and not mayStore.

I think this looks fine now. Thanks for putting up with our dithering.
