[GlobalISel][AArch64][NFC] Use getDefIgnoringCopies from Utils where we can

Authored by paquette on Jul 10 2019, 10:10 AM.



There are a few places where we walk over copies throughout AArch64InstructionSelector.cpp. In Utils, there's a function that does exactly this which we can use instead.

Note that the utility function works with the case where we run into a COPY from a physical register. We've run into bugs with this a couple times, so using it should defend us from similar future bugs.

I'm not sure getDefIgnoringCopies handles physical registers correctly, does that have a test somewhere?

It should. It gets the source type using MRI.getType, which should return LLT {} when you give it a physical register. This should make the source type invalid, which ends the search.

I'll add a test anyway though, since I'm not sure if one exists.

Add a testcase showing that we won't crash if we encounter a copy from a physical register.
