[mlir][Standard] Allow select to use an i1 for vector and tensor values

Authored by rriddle on Apr 22 2020, 8:15 PM.



It currently requires that the condition match the shape of the selected value, but this is only really useful for things like masks. This revision allows for the use of i1 to mean that all of the vector/tensor is selected. This also matches the behavior of LLVM select. A benefit of this change is that transformations that want to generate selects, like those on the CFG, don't have to special case vector/tensor. Previously the only way to generate a select from an i1 was to use a splat, but that doesn't support dynamically shaped/unranked tensors.

Depends On D78683

I would expect that you don't need the i1 here right? Or I misunderstand why you don't need the i1 in the "full vector selection" case below.


It almost seems like an entirely different operation to me compared to the simple selection of one input or the other. Should we have a vselect or something?

Yep, thanks. Forgot to change this.


vselect sounds weird given that it also supports tensors, but I agree that the semantics are kind of different. The optional predication is the only thing that removes this from solely being a "simple" select.

Do you plan to followup on looking into splitting this in two different ops?

+1. maybe select_value for the one that is not describable as a pure elementwise vector/tensor op?
