Consider the following IR:
%3 = load i8* undef %4 = trunc i8 %3 to i1 %5 = call %jl_value_t.0* @foo(..., i1 %4, ...) ret %jl_value_t.0* %5
Bools (that are the result of direct truncs) are lowered as whatever
the argument to the trunc was and a "and 1", causing the part of the
MBB responsible for this argument to look something like this:
%vreg8<def,tied1> = AND8ri %vreg7<kill,tied0>, 1, %EFLAGS<imp-def>; GR8:%vreg8,%vreg7
Later, when the load is lowered, it will insert
%vreg15<def> = MOV8rm %vreg14, 1, %noreg, 0, %noreg; mem:LD1[undef] GR8:%vreg15 GR64:%vreg14
but remember to (at the end of isel) replace vreg7 by vreg15. Now for
the bug. In fast isel lowering, we mistakenly mark vreg8 as the result
of the load instead of the trunc. This adds a fixup to have
vreg8 replaced by whatever the result of the load is as well, so
we end up with
%vreg15<def,tied1> = AND8ri %vreg15<kill,tied0>, 1, %EFLAGS<imp-def>; GR8:%vreg15
which is an SSA violation and causes problems later down the road.
This fixes PR21557.
