[RS4GC] Avoid crashing on gep scalar, vector_idx

Authored by reames on Jan 23 2019, 9:23 PM.



This is an alternative to

The issue at hand is that the base rewriting algorithm doesn't consider the fact that GEPs can turn a scalar input into a vector of outputs. We had handling for scalar GEPs and fully vector GEPs (i.e. all vector operands), but not the scalar-base + vector-index forms. A true fix here requires treating GEP analogously to extractelement or shufflevector.

This patch is merely a workaround. It simply hides the crash at the cost of some ugly code gen for this presumable very rare pattern.

LGTM w/ comments.

do you think it makes sense to add an assert here as the else part:

else {
   assert(VF == I.getOperand(i)->getType()->getVectorNumElements() && "expected same VF for all operands!");

Btw, this property is also verified in the IRVerifier when we come across a vector GEP (vector GEP is one where *any* of the GEP operands is a vector type).
