[AMDGPU] Remove unnecessary v_mov from a register to itself in WQM lowering.

Authored by mjbedy on Dec 11 2019, 7:35 PM.


  • SI Whole Quad Mode phase is replacing WQM pseudo instructions with v_mov instructions.

While this is necessary for the special handling of moving results out of WWM live ranges,
it is not necessary for WQM live ranges. The result is a v_mov from a register to itself after every
WQM operation. This change uses a COPY psuedo in these cases, which allows the register
allocator to coalesce the moves away.

These should only ever have been moves to begin with? Just remove the one exec operand?

This basically LGTM


They were move-like: WQM, SOFT_WQM, V_SET_INACTIVE_xx. I think it makes sense though to just remove that one operand and maybe assert there are no other implicit uses.

Now that I look closer at this, I'm not even sure what this loop is doing (or the one in the case above that I modeled it on)? The exec operands are implicit so this doesn't touch them. This is what comes into the phase:

%12:vgpr_32 = WQM %10:vgpr_32, implicit $exec, implicit $exec

And this is what comes out:

%12:vgpr_32 = COPY %10:vgpr_32, implicit $exec, implicit $exec

The loop removes any extra explicit operands after the first two, which will become the destination and source of the copy. Currently the SET_INACTIVE instructions have an extra explicit operand called "inactive".

Several passes add an implicit use of exec without checking whether there was one already, so I'm not surprised this pass does not bother to remove any implicit operands. You can see instructions with multiple "implicit $exec" operands in debug output and even in some of our autogenerated lit tests.

  • Change operand removel code to be less generic, only V_SET_INACTIVE with an undef source needs an operand removed.

I fixed the code to only expect this one case, and added a test for it.

LGTM, with one minor nitpick.
