Add LazyCallGraph API to add function to RefSCC

Authored by modocache on Jan 5 2020, 5:33 AM.



Depends on

LazyCallGraph::addNewFunctionIntoSCC allows users to insert a new
function node into a call graph, into a specific, existing SCC.

Extend this interface such that functions can be added even when they do
not belong in any existing SCC, but instead in a new SCC within an
existing RefSCC.

The ability to insert new functions as part of a RefSCC is necessary for
outlined functions that do not form a strongly connected cycle with the
function they are outlined from. An example of such a function would be the
coroutine funclets 'f.resume', etc., which are outlined from a coroutine 'f'.
Coroutine 'f' only references the funclets' addresses, it does not call
them directly.

The short-circuit change makes sense to me. But what caused the creation of extra SCCs due to self-recursion? Is that because of the short-cut from line 808-825 and the clearing of SCC stack and DFS stack broke the LowLink and DFSNumber check of later Tarjan DFS?

Since this fix targets self-recursion specifically, just wanted to make sure the underlying issue doesn't go beyond self-recursion. Specifically, will we (incorrectly) create extra SCC if we have an indirect recursion/cycle from that target node, and we get caught by line 808-825 before every node in the original SCC is visited and placed on PendingSCCStack..

Yeah, very good questions. When I was writing this patch, I was focused more on getting my specific use case, the one covered by the unit test, to work without hitting an assert. (I also think this is potentially a performance optimization, but I haven't measured in any meaningful way.) But I'm also curious why this occurs, and will look into it a little more. I'd ideally like to get a unit test case that demonstrates the issue without being based on top of D70927, but I wasn't able to in this first iteration of the patch.

I think I see the issue.

First of all, this comment is incorrect: CallGraphUpdater::registerOutlinedFunction doesn't automatically add any edges between f and g, that's up to the user to do themself -- it doesn't create a reference edge, a call edge, it doesn't create anything.

Here I'm inserting g into the same SCC as f, but for that to be a valid SCC to insert into, f and g need to be part of the same strongly-connected component, meaning a call edge path exists connecting f *-> g and g *-> f. (For typical "outlining" of a part of the body of f into some outlined function, a call edge path from f *-> g would almost certainly exist.)

However, in the case of coroutine funclets, there is only a ref edge f -> g. And in this example, there's not even a ref edge f -> g`.

So this is user error: I shouldn't be inserting f into g, I ought to instead create an SCC especially for g. If I do so, then later when the call graph is updated to handle the demotion of f -> f from a call edge to a ref edge, the DFS walk won't find a new SCC (g), and incorporateNewSCCRange won't be called with ranges [(g), (f)] for f.

That's my theory, anyway. If I end up being right, I'll probably end up abandoning this change and changing D71899 slightly.

I updated this patch such that it can address the underlying problem encountered by the coro-split pass in D71899: we need a method of inserting new ref edges into an existing call graph, whereas currently the CallGraphUpdater only allows the insertion of call edges. I don't know if there's any use for such an API in the old CallGraph, so I left that unimplemented. I also considered simply adding this functionality as a member function on LazyCallGraph or one of its inner classes, but decided to reuse CallGraphUpdater in order to share some of the logic.

modocache edited the summary of this revision. (Show Details)

Update based on @jdoerfert's latest version of revision D70927. Previous versions added a public member function to CallGraphUpdater, the latest versions instead add a public member function to LazyCallGraph. This update does the same, it moves the new member function, from CallGraphUpdater::registerReferredToOutlinedFunction, to LazyCallGraph::addNewFunctionIntoRefSCC.

modocache added a subscriber: hfinkel.

Now that the underlying D70927 has been committed, this diff needs a code review. I'll add @hfinkel since he left some helpful review comments on D70927.

You don't have a CallGraphUpdater interface for this. Is this on purpose? (The test mentions CallGraphUpdater still).


You have to specify that the node will form a new SCC inside of \p RC

Thanks, @jdoerfert! As per your suggestions I updated the docblock and the test comments, and I added a test specifically for LazyCallGraph. Built and tested everything with ASAN and it passes.
