[AArch64][SVE]Add cost model for broadcast shuffle

Authored by CarolineConcatto on Jan 28 2021, 1:05 AM.



This patch adds a cost model for SK_Broadcast in
AArch64TTIImpl::getShuffleCost with scalable vector.
Without this patch, the scalable vector type relies on BasicTTIImpl cost
implementation and assert.

Why did you remove this condition?


Can't these be moved into the table above? (ShuffleTbl)


s/slapt/broadcast/ (same for tests below)

-add original if statement
-move the table cost for scalable types to ShuffleTbl

-replace test name @slapt_v4f32 by @broadcast_v4f32(

I don't see any reason why we need this if here.
IMO it is a redundancy that I think should be removed if we have more then one cost table.
But as we are merging the cost for scalable vectors with fixed vectors I am leaving this if as it was.


We can, but I thought that having one table cost for fixed vector and one for scalable makes the code clear.

I think we also need one for the type MVT::nxv8bf16 here.


nit: Whitespace change


Hi Carol, this is just a suggestion, but a reviewer (David Green) on one of my recent cost model patches suggested that we could do all tests in one function, i.e.

define void @broadcast_legal() {
%0 = shufflevector <vscale x 16 x i8> %v, <vscale x 16 x i8> poison, <vscale x 16 x i32> zeroinitializer
%1 = shufflevector <vscale x 32 x i8> %v, <vscale x 32 x i8> poison, <vscale x 32 x i32> zeroinitializer

and so on. I found it really useful as all the CHECK lines can go in the same function and it reduces the test size. He mentioned that in my patch here - It means we can reduce the number of functions and number of unnecessary checks for the "ret void" instruction.

@Thank you all for the suggestion.
I have added the support for MVT::nxv8bf16 and simplify the test.

LGTM with nit addressed!


nit: It looks like '%v' isn't used anymore here so can delete?

-remove non used parameter from the test function broadcast
