In dialect conversion infrastructure, source materialization applies as part of
the finalization procedure to results of the newly produced operations that
replace previously existing values with values having a different type.
However, such operations may be created to replace operations created in other
patterns. At this point, it is possible that the results of the _original_
operation are still in use and have mismatching types, but the results of the
_intermediate_ operation that performed the type change are not in use leading
to the absence of source materialization. For example,
%0 = dialect.produce : !dialect.A dialect.use %0 : !dialect.A
can be replaced with
%0 = dialect.other : !dialect.A %1 = dialect.produce : !dialect.A // replaced, scheduled for removal dialect.use %1 : !dialect.A
and then with
%0 = dialect.final : !dialect.B %1 = dialect.other : !dialect.A // replaced, scheduled for removal %2 = dialect.produce : !dialect.A // replaced, scheduled for removal dialect.use %2 : !dialect.A
in the same rewriting, but only the %1->%0 replacement is currently considered.
Change the logic in dialect conversion to look up all values that were replaced
by the given value and performing source materialization if any of those values
is still in use with mismatching types. This is performed by computing the
inverse value replacement mapping. This arguably expensive manipulation is
performed only if there were some type-changing replacements. An alternative
could be to consider all replaced operations and not only those that resulted
in type changes, but it would harm pattern-level composability: the pattern
that performed the non-type-changing replacement would have to be made aware of
the type converter in order to call the materialization hook.
