[ValueTracking] determine sign of 0.0 from select when matching min/max FP

Authored by spatel on Nov 1 2018, 2:48 PM.



In PR39475:
..we may fail to recognize/simplify fabs() in some cases because we do not canonicalize fcmp with a -0.0 operand.

Adding that canonicalization can cause regressions on min/max FP tests, so that's this patch: for the purpose of determining whether something is min/max, let the value returned by the select determine how we treat a 0.0 operand in the fcmp.

This patch doesn't actually change the -0.0 to +0.0. It just changes the analysis, so we don't fail to recognize equivalent min/max patterns that only differ in the signbit of 0.0.

This looks big. Can you avoid repeating the same thing for the true and false cases?

Yes, it's a bit ugly. There really are 8 variations to test for from I see, but we can do better by matching with m_AnyZeroFP.
Unfortunately, I left out a potential vector mishap with undefs here, so I need to check for that.

Patch updated:

  1. Reduced code by checking for any FP zero followed by mismatch.
  2. Added checks and unit tests to ignore vector constants with undef elements.
