MachinePipeliner pass that implements Swing Modulo Scheduling
Software pipelining is an optimization for improving ILP by
overlapping loop iterations. Swing Modulo Scheduling (SMS) is
an implementation of software pipelining that attempts to
reduce register pressure and generate efficient pipelines with
a low compile-time cost.
This implementaion of SMS is a target-independent back-end pass.
When enabled, the pass should run just prior to the register
allocation pass, while the machine IR is in SSA form. If the pass
is successful, then the original loop is replaced by the optimized
loop. The optimized loop contains one or more prolog blocks, the
pipelined kernel, and one or more epilog blocks.
This pass is enabled for Hexagon only. To enable for other targets,
a couple of target specific hooks must be implemented, and the
pass needs to be called from the target's TargetMachine
