[ARM] Take into account -mcpu and -mfpu options while handling 'crypto' feature

Authored by krisb on Aug 9 2019, 9:14 AM.



'+crypto' means '+aes' and '+sha2' for arch >= ARMv8 when they were
not disabled explicitly. But this is correctly handled only in case of
'-march' option, though the feature may also be specified through
the '-mcpu' or '-mfpu' options. In the following example:

$ clang -mcpu=cortex-a57 -mfpu=crypto-neon-fp-armv8

'aes' and 'sha2' are disabled that is quite unexpected:

$ clang -cc1 -triple armv8--- -target-cpu cortex-a57
  <...> -target-feature -sha2 -target-feature -aes -target-feature +crypto

This exposed by that makes
the 'aes' and 'sha2' features disabled by default.

So, while handling the 'crypto' feature we need to take into account:

  • a CPU name, as it provides the information about architecture (if no '-march' option specified),
  • features, specified by the '-mcpu' and '-mfpu' options.

Could just use llvm::ARM::ArchKind arm::getLLVMArchKindForARM(StringRef CPU, StringRef Arch, const llvm::Triple &Triple) ?

Applied the comment.

@dnsampaio, thanks, this looks better.

Hi @krisb,
thanks for looking into this, and sorry for the delay, was out for a week.

486–490 ↗(On Diff #215394)

Could we do something a little more permanent here, for example it is already missing ARMV8_5A.
Digging I found the function StringRef arm::getLLVMArchSuffixForARM(StringRef CPU, StringRef Arch, const llvm::Triple &Triple).
Perhaps just testing (llvm::ARM::parseArchVersion(arm::getLLVMArchSuffixForARM(StringRef CPU, StringRef Arch, const llvm::Triple &Triple)) >= 8)
would do a better job.

Good catch.

Applied the comment & rebased.
Also changed the patch to take into account only the latest 'crypto' in the Features vector, to avoid enabling 'sha2' and 'aes' when 'crypto' was finally disabled.

@dnsampaio, thanks! This is definitely better. I also added ARMV8_5A as a test case.

LGTM. One optional nit as it is not related with this patch anymore.

For safety perhaps we can keep the CPU.empty() test.

@dnsampaio thanks for reviewing this! Could I ask you to commit the patch (since I don't have commit access yet)?

dnsampaio requested changes to this revision.Aug 30 2019, 8:44 AM

clang -### -target arm-arm-none-eabit -march=armv8-m.main+crypto did not show +sha2 or +aes. After the patch it does.
I believe that is not expected, as in crypto is not applied for any M profile. And Arm®v8-M Architecture Reference Manual does not reference these extensions neither.

&& (llvm::ARM::parseArchProfile(Arch) == llvm::ARM::ProfileKind::A)

I see. But this doesn't seem like a valid case, does it? Shouldn't we somehow diagnose it to not to silently ignore user-specified options?

Hi, I do agree that giving the user a warning that the argument is ignored is the best solution. If you wouldn't mind adding it to this patch, that would be great. Thanks.

Applied the comment: enable 'sha2' and 'aes' only for armv8 A profile, report warning and disable 'crypto' for other archs. Add more tests.
