[PowerPC] Add peephole to remove redundant accumulator prime/unprime instructions

Authored by bsaleil on Nov 12 2020, 1:25 PM.



In some situations, the compiler may insert an accumulator prime instruction and an accumulator unprime instruction with no use of that accumulator between the two.
That's for example the case when we store an accumulator after assembling it or restoring it. This patch adds a peephole to remove these prime and unprime instructions.

Question: Besides adding the operand register to the candidate, are we also recording the machine instruction used the register candidate? If I understand it properly, can we also add it in the comment? This would help understand your comment below we mark the two instructions for removal. - line 380


nit: do you think we need to add instruction OPC information in the message to differentiate them?


nit: operand -> operand register
