[X86][SSE] EltsFromConsecutiveLoads - add basic dereferenceable support

Authored by RKSimon on Jul 4 2019, 6:41 AM.



This patch checks to see if the vector element loads are based off a dereferenceable pointer that covers the entire vector width, in which case we don't need to have element loads at both extremes of the vector width - just the start (base pointer) of it.

Another step towards partial vector loads......

Allow any dereferenceable load if it doesn't contain any zeros

Any reason that FirstLoadedElt must be zero if IsDereferenceable? I didn't see anything beyond the CreateLoad where that predicate could be relocated.

It'd be nice if we could pull the first/last checks up into the IsDereferenceable definition.

At the moment the only usecases I have for dereferencable ranges is for entire vector loads.

MachinePointerInfo::isDereferenceable() could be extended to have a -ve and +ve "span" range so we could work with partial 'insertion' loads but I haven't seen a usecase for it yet.

any more comments?
