[mlir][SideEffects] Mark the CFG only terminator operations as NoSideEffect

Authored by rriddle on Mar 9 2020, 7:01 PM.



These terminator operations don't really have any side effects, and this allows for more accurate side-effect analysis for region operations. For example, currently we can't detect like a loop.for or affine.for are dead because the affine.terminator is "side effecting".

Note: Marking as NoSideEffect doesn't mean that these operations can be opaquely erased.

Depends On D75886

The plan is to get rid of NoSideEffect right? Are you just taking a temporary detour here?

Essentially yes. I'm building up the necessary infra for replacing Operation::hasNoSideEffect with something more powerful. Setting that up will make it much easier to transition things.

For the dialects I am involved with this looks reasonable.


This might still simplify terminator operations that we do not identify as those. Is the idea that those still have to remain side-effecting? Or will this be fixed in a future iteration with more detailed modelling?

CSE/DCE doesn't modify the CFG(terminators) generally, so this check will remain the same regardless of effect modeling.
