Enhance loop rotation with existence of profile data in MachineBlockPlacement…

Description

Enhance loop rotation with existence of profile data in MachineBlockPlacement pass.

Currently, in MachineBlockPlacement pass the loop is rotated to let the best exit to be the last BB in the loop chain, to maximize the fall-through from the loop to outside. With profile data, we can determine the cost in terms of missed fall through opportunities when rotating a loop chain and select the best rotation. Basically, there are three kinds of cost to consider for each rotation:

  1. The possibly missed fall through edge (if it exists) from BB out of the loop to the loop header.
  2. The possibly missed fall through edges (if they exist) from the loop exits to BB out of the loop.
  3. The missed fall through edge (if it exists) from the last BB to the first BB in the loop chain.

Therefore, the cost for a given rotation is the sum of costs listed above. We select the best rotation with the smallest cost. This is only for PGO mode when we have more precise edge frequencies.
