Description

[ObjC][ARC] Check the basic block size before calling DominatorTree::dominate.

ARC contract pass has an optimization that replaces the uses of the
argument of an ObjC runtime function call with the call result.

For example:

; Before optimization
%1 = tail call i8* @foo1()
%2 = tail call i8* @llvm.objc.retainAutoreleasedReturnValue(i8* %1)
store i8* %1, i8** @g0, align 8

; After optimization
%1 = tail call i8* @foo1()
%2 = tail call i8* @llvm.objc.retainAutoreleasedReturnValue(i8* %1)
store i8* %2, i8** @g0, align 8 // %1 is replaced with %2

Before replacing the argument use, DominatorTree::dominate is called to
determine whether the user instruction is dominated by the ObjC runtime
function call instruction. The call to DominatorTree::dominate can be
expensive if the two instructions belong to the same basic block and the
size of the basic block is large. This patch checks the basic block size
and just bails out if the size exceeds the limit set by command line
option "arc-contract-max-bb-size".
