[SelectionDAG] Avoid aliasing analysis if the object size is unknown.

Authored by HsiangKai on Nov 19 2020, 5:22 PM.



If the size of memory access is unknown, do not use it to analysis. One example of unknown size memory access is to load/store scalable vector objects on the stack.

clang format.

Thanks, could you please add a unit test for this ?

This is too aggressive. We can still determine that a two addresses are non-aliasing even if one is unknown size. (e.g. FrameIndex vs. Global)

The checking is under the condition that BasePtr0.equalBaseIndex(BasePtr1, ...) equals true. It would not be the case you considered.

Add unit tests.

What about the case where equalBaseIndex returns true, and the lowered addressed access has a known size smaller than the difference? In that case, we should be able to determine that they are do not alias.

I doubt there is a such scenario to share the same base between fixed and scalable types. I could add an assertion here.

I could not exclude the case that one fixed object is fixed length type and another fixed object is scalable vector type. Sorry for that. I will update the patch.

LGTM modulo minor nit. Thanks!
