Generate llvm.loop.parallel_accesses instead of llvm.mem.parallel_loop_access metadata.

Authored by Meinersbur on Sep 14 2018, 12:04 PM.



Instead of generating llvm.mem.parallel_loop_access metadata, generate on instructions and llvm.loop.parallel_accesses on loops. There is one access group per generated loop.

This is clang part of D52116.

  • Upload diff for clang portion (instead of D52116)

I glimpsed over this without spotting anything crucial. My Clang code base knowledge is a bit lightweight though so you might want to wait for an another reviewer. On the other hand, the semantics seem to be retained so it might be safe to commit this in case the tests still pass.

We need to remember to update pocl to produce this format then.


typo 'propert'


Can you add a test case of a nested loop that is not "perfect", that is, has accesses also in the outer loop bodies?

reverse(Active).begin() looks odd. Can we get the same thing by calling last()?

  • Allow multiple access groups per instructions, i.e. an instruction can be in multiple access groups. This allows a simple 'union' operation that occurs when inlining into another function. A memory access is considered parallel when at least one access group is listed in llvm.loop.parallel_accesses. This is prioritized over the 'intersect' case for combining instructions which would be dual. We only do best-effort here.

  • Fix wrong patch upload
  • Simplify access group emission ... .. possible due to the added possibility for instructions to belong to multiple access groups in D52116. However, the number of access groups is not minimized anymore.

Minor typo noted below, but otherwise, LGTM (to avoid any misunderstanding: this should be committed after the LLVM change lands).
