[ARM] Handle debug instrs in ARM Low Overhead Loop pass

Authored by vhscampos on Mar 22 2021, 7:01 AM.



In function ConvertVPTBlocks(), it is assumed that every instruction
within a vector-predicated block is predicated. This is false for debug
instructions, used by LLVM.

Because of this, an assertion failure is reached when an input contains
debug instructions inside VPT blocks. In non-assert builds, an out of
bounds memory access took place.

The present patch properly covers the case of debug instructions.

This looks like it should be an assert.


I think this might have to handle debug better. Can we try and make sure that DivergentNext is not a debug instruction.

Add assertion in RemovePredicate lambda.
SKip debug instructions inside VPT blocks with predicate divergence.

I'm not sure if DivergentNext can be end(), can it? I think the block will always contain a terminator.
(If it can be end(), we would still need to remove the predicates and replace the instruction)

Remove predicate of instructions after the divergent one even if there's no non-debug instruction after it.

Thanks for the fix. LGTM.


It doesn't need both the assert and the unreachable - you can remove the if.

Remove if statement inside RemovePredicate as it's already covered by an assertion.
