[ARM] Disable WLSTP loops

Authored by dmgreen on Nov 17 2020, 3:05 PM.



This checks to see if the loop will likely become a tail predicated loop and disables wls loop generation if so, as the likelihood for reverting is currently too high. These should be fairly rare situations anyway due to the way iterations and element counts are used during lowering. Just not trying can alter how SCEV's are materialized however, leading to different codegen.

It also adds a option to disable all while low overhead loops, for debugging.

Sounds good to me, I would have been in favour of just completely disabling wls for now :)

Thanks. WLS can certainly be beneficial in places, so is best to leave on for non-tail predicated loop. We can try to make them less likely to revert and hopefully re-enable them for tail predicated loops in the future, once the performance/correctness is more reliable.
