[NVPTX] Added intrinsics/instructions for MMA ops on (sub-)integers

Authored by tra on Mar 29 2019, 2:55 PM.



PTX 6.3 (CUDA-10.0) extends wmma instruction to support s8/u8/s4/u4/b1 -> s32.

All of the new instructions are still handled mostly by tablegen. I've slightly
refactored the code to drive intrinsic/instruction generation from a master
list of supported variants, so all irregularities have to be implemented in one place only.

The test generation script has been refactored in a similar way.
I've added additional checks to verify the sanity of the set of tests generated
by the script for particular PTX and SM combination.

Discussed with Art offline. The tablegen code is still not readable, but it's considerably better than the past, and inventing new tools (e.g. Cartesian product) may be hard.

Can you add a few examples of the generated regs?

Can you document Type{A,B,C,D} for their meanings?

Typical MMA_REGS record looks like this:

def anonymous_58 {      // WMMA_REGS
  string geom = "m16n16k16";
  string frag = "a";
  string ptx_elt_type = "f16";
  string gft = "m16n16k16:a:f16";
  string ft = "a:f16";
  list<LLVMType> regs = [llvm_v2f16_ty, llvm_v2f16_ty, llvm_v2f16_ty, llvm_v2f16_ty, llvm_v2f16_ty, llvm_v2f16_ty, llvm_v2f16_ty, llvm_v2f16_ty];

It carries information necessary to generate relevant bits of the instrisics & instructions. E.g. how many registers we need to use for the fragment, what do we call them and what's the corresponding LLVM type.
The details on supported fragment formats can be found in the latest PTX ISA docs:
I'll add the link to the comment.

The string lists in TypeX carry PTX types supported by MMA ops with geometries specified by Geom.
