[VPlan] Add VPlan based sinkInstructions utility.

Authored by fhahn on May 14 2018, 3:59 AM.



This patch introduces a sinkInstructions utility that sinks instructions
in a VPlan based on an Instruction -> Instruction mapping, as returned
by LoopVectorizationLegality::getSinkAfter. It also adds a
VPlanHCFGTransforms.cpp, for functions that do not rely on stuff
defined in LoopVectorize.cpp, to move to a more modular structure.

Once we migrated getSinkAfter to operate on a VPlan, we should change
this to not rely on the underlying values.

Hi Florian. Some comments, regardless my previous comments in D46827:

  1. Location: Same as in D46827, we may need to find a better place. Maybe a VPlanHCFGTransforms class for now?
  2. Just a thought for the future: I think sinkAfter could be one of those things that we may want to rethink/re-implement a bit in the VPlan native path. If it's only used for interleave groups, we may want to include the sinkAfter analysis and transformation steps as part of the future interleave groups VPlan-to-VPlan transformation.

I'm using independent DEBUG_TYPE in D44338 for VPlan verifier and HCFGConstruction files. I guess we should be consistent. We could use 'loop-vectorize' for all of them or also use an independent one for this.

Is \p still used for documenting parameters?

Thanks Diego, LoopVectorizationPlanner is not the right place, initially I was not sure where to put it. I updated the patch to move sinkInstructions to VPlanHCFGTransforms. I've made this a class with static member functions, as sinkInstructions gets access to getUnderlyingVal via a friend class.

I agree that in the long term, we should migrate to a VPlan native handling of the interleave group handling. I suppose that would be something that could be done independently. Maybe it would be worth collecting a set of tasks/cleanups that aren't blocked on other changes.

I think using 'loop-vectorize' everywhere is that we can use -debug-only=loop-vectorize to get the complete picture.


This version leaks the created instructions. I will clean that up in the next update (or before committing).

Much better with this VPlanHCFGTransforms! Thanks a lot!
Just some minor comments. LGTM. Again, let's wait for D46827 to see if this code is still necessary.



assert(isa) + cast?


same here? assert(isa) + cast?


Hopefully this won't promote the use of the underlying IR for other VPlan-to-VPlan transformations when it's not necessary.

After the recent changes to D46827, this patch is not really necessary for now, but it may be useful in the future.
