[LoopFusion] Move instructions from FC1.GuardBlock to FC0.GuardBlock and from FC0.ExitBlock to FC1.ExitBlock when proven safe.

Authored by Whitney on Jan 29 2020, 9:43 AM.



Currently LoopFusion give up when the second loop nest guard
block or the first loop nest exit block is not empty. For example:

if (0 < N) {
  for (int i = 0; i < N; ++i) {}
if (0 < N) {
  for (int i = 0; i < N; ++i) {}

The above example should be safe to fuse.
This PR moves instructions in FC1 guard block (e.g. y+=1;) to
FC0 guard block, or instructions in FC0 exit block (e.g. x+=1;) to
FC1 exit block, which then LoopFusion is able to fuse them.

Do we still need these isEmptyXXXBlock methods?


What happens now if there is a FC1 guard branch with non-movable instructions but no fc0 guard branch. I think we now miss that case and do sth? Could you add a test if we don't have one?

Removed isEmptyXXXBlock methods.


Good catch!


I think that's not allowed in

Fair, then you didn't need to change FC1->GuardBranch && into FC0->GuardBranch && FC1->GuardBranch &&, right? At least that is what confused me here.
Maybe we do an outer if (FC0->GuardBranch) {...} and an assertion that both are set or none is? That makes the two conditionals also simpler as they only check isSafeToMoveBefore.

LGTM with the caveat that the last change didn't do what I hoped for, see below.


Now you check FC1->GuardBranch twice. What I meant was:

if (FC0->GuardBranch) {
           assert(FC1->GuardBranch && "Expecting valid FC1 guard branch");
            if (!isSafeToMoveBefore(*FC0->ExitBlock,
                                 *FC1->ExitBlock->getFirstNonPHIOrDbg(), DT,
                                 PDT, DI)) {
           LLVM_DEBUG(dbgs() << "Fusion candidate contains unsafe "
                                "instructions in exit block. Not fusing.\n");

           reportLoopFusion<OptimizationRemarkMissed>(*FC0, *FC1,

           if (!isSafeToMoveBefore(
                   *FC0->GuardBranch->getParent()->getTerminator(), DT, PDT,
                   DI)) {
                        << "Fusion candidate contains unsafe "
                           "instructions in guard block. Not fusing.\n");
