[SVE][Inline-Asm] Support for SVE asm operands

Authored by kmclaughlin on Aug 15 2019, 9:01 AM.



Adds the following inline asm constraints for SVE:

  • w: SVE vector register with full range, Z0 to Z31
  • x: Restricted to registers Z0 to Z15 inclusive.
  • y: Restricted to registers Z0 to Z7 inclusive.

This change also adds the "z" modifier to interpret a register as an SVE register.

Not all of the bitconvert patterns added by this patch are used, but they have been included here for completeness.

Thanks for this change @kmclaughlin.

I noticed this comment does not match the code below, since y only seems to work for scalable vectors, which probably shows this case is missing a test.

  • Added a new test file, aarch64-sve-asm-negative.ll
  • Updated description of the 'y' constraint in LangRef.rst

The use of hasAltName is confusing me here. When I look at the declaration and definition of printAsmRegInClass, the parameter is called bool isVector, and a SVE vector is still a vector, so passing false is odd. I think it makes more sense to change printAsmRegInClass to accept an unsigned AltName, and just pass AArch64::vreg for Neon Vectors directly (or AArch64::NoRegAltName otherwise).

Can you add a comment explaining what this is testing (and why the inline asm below is not valid)?

nit: what is this line doing here?

  • Changed printAsmRegInClass in AArch64AsmPrinter.cpp to accept unsigned AltName instead of bool isVector
  • Added a comment to explain the test in aarch64-sve-asm-negative.ll
  • Removed a confusing comment from AArch64AsmPrinter.cpp

AArch64ISelLowering.cpp:5837:5: warning: unannotated fall-through between switch labels [-Wimplicit-fallthrough]
AArch64ISelLowering.cpp:5837:5: note: insert 'LLVM_FALLTHROUGH;' to silence this warning
AArch64ISelLowering.cpp:5837:5: note: insert 'break;' to avoid fall-through

Is the fallthrough intentional?

Thank you to @gribozavr & @ruiu for spotting the warning caused by this patch, and the suggestions to use -Wimplicit-fallthrough!


The fallthrough was not intentional; this should now be resolved by D67095
