50 check-ins occurring around 71a4e793a15de0a4.

2018-12-07
02:23
Increase recursion limit to allow compilation of longer procedures. Correct a bug in expandInlines that left dangling references to procedure args. Correct a bug in analyzeTypes where the INT/ENTIER break was set to int32 rather than int64. Add shift operations to constfold. Improve auditing. Merge trunk. Leaf check-in: 023d0828f0 user: kbk tags: poly1305

21:17
merge trunk check-in: c2a6505ae9 user: dkf tags: poly1305
21:14
Huge mess of half-converted code, with something horrible inside. Definitely buggy... check-in: 462eec7d43 user: dkf tags: list-and-dict-types
03:15
Merge kbk-pre - add the optimizations of loop inversion (enables loop-invariant code motion) and partial redundancy elimination, and fix multiple bugs exposed by these optimizations. check-in: 0e06123e97 user: kbk tags: trunk
03:13
Array initialization cannot be hoisted because every array needs its own initArray. Code insertion must ignore operations that it has already inserted, or infinite loops can result. All tests pass! Closed-Leaf check-in: cf87d02677 user: kbk tags: kbk-pre
01:42
Remove speculative phis if they turned out not to be useful check-in: bd6294fade user: kbk tags: notworking, kbk-pre
2018-12-05
05:37
Rewrite pre_insert and pre_phi_translate to NOT use a persistent cache. The missing piece in VanD04 is that pre_insert must call pre_phi_translate for all the anticipated expressions first, and then use the dictionary that results for the translated values. There are still further bugs, but we're over this hump at least. check-in: 0bbe5a5dd3 user: kbk tags: notworking, kbk-pre
2018-12-03
05:08
Stop constant folding from leaving dead code behind, Add a test for simple nested iterations, using [lmap]. Temporarily patch 'foreach' operations from being hoistable - I don't think this will be necessary, but it's tickling other bugs. Make translation of values across a phi work if one of the inputs to the phi is a literal. Put 'bbidom' and 'bblevel' directly after dead code elimination, because virtually everything depends on having dominators, which deadcode destroys. check-in: 4f50ed77b2 user: kbk tags: notworking, kbk-pre
01:06
Fix crashing bug in creating variable name for a phi operation. Fix bug where partial redundancy elimination got stale dominators, causing much weirdness. Add additional tracing to available expression calculation. check-in: ce1088b7a7 user: kbk tags: notworking, kbk-pre
2018-12-02
23:27
Turn on partial redundancy elimination. Correct bug in availability analysis that led to infinite loop in 'msrange2' check-in: 68da56cfee user: kbk tags: notworking, kbk-pre
2018-12-01
17:37
Restructure pass management in 'tidy'. Add constant folding of a few more operations. check-in: e2750cb57e user: kbk tags: kbk-pre
2018-11-29
13:57
merge trunk check-in: b0b8f8280b user: dkf tags: list-and-dict-types
11:34

00:56
merge trunk check-in: 815387c202 user: kbk tags: notworking, kbk-pre
2018-11-28
08:52

08:31
Account for emptiness in LIST and DICT types check-in: 67f834abb0 user: dkf tags: list-and-dict-types
2018-11-27
13:48
Also assert that DICT has a 'free' conversion to LIST check-in: 7de430014e user: dkf tags: list-and-dict-types
08:22
Constants and types check-in: 58434a3dd0 user: dkf tags: list-and-dict-types
03:07
Fix bug in finding variable names among the args to 'regexp' check-in: 6311170b65 user: kbk tags: trunk
2018-11-26
08:35
merge trunk check-in: 45f62a2c25 user: dkf tags: list-and-dict-types
04:57
Added a couple of tests to trigger loop-invariant code motion. Corrected du-chain mismanagement in callframe.tcl (deleting moveToCallFrame), copyprop.tcl (deleting any quads), uselessphis (deleting anything), and narrow.tcl (cleanupNarrow, deleting anything). NOT WORKING: During node splitting, at least 'flightawarebench', 'msrange', 'bug7c59', and 'cse-caller' are still coming out with mismanaged chains. Improved auditing in the 'tidy' pass of the transformer, and made it less aggressive about rechecking everything. NOT WORKING: in the 'wordcounter2' test case, it's missing at least one invocation of 'initArrayIfNotExists' because we're falling into the code gen in 'compile.tcl' for initArrayIfNotExists(ARRAY). Advanced partial redundancy elimination to 'code complete' status. The stuff surrounding it is in bad enough shape at the moment that it is far from tested, and known not to be working for everything, but is patched out at the moment. check-in: 02ab4301aa user: kbk tags: notworking, kbk-pre
2018-11-23
18:42
Back out from quite a long false path - switch over from Simpson's modified SSAPRE to VanDrunen's GVNPRE. Implemented the two phases of BUILDSETS - results look correct for a couple of simple tests. check-in: e69362f376 user: kbk tags: kbk-pre
2018-11-13
02:57
Code complete for PRE - except that I don't know how to introduce a phi if PRE has made an expression available on two afferent flow graph edges rather than in a dominator. check-in: fa9f7e0eb3 user: kbk tags: notworking, kbk-pre
2018-11-12
16:38
Tidy up commentary and calculation of INSERT and DELETE. Build the place to start code rewriting, and add some methods to start on renaming variables wholesale. check-in: e901ec10df user: kbk tags: kbk-pre
01:38
Change signatures in preparation for code rewriting: include enough information in signatures so that INSERT can reconstruct an instruction check-in: c098311242 user: kbk tags: kbk-pre
2018-11-11
22:34
Add bitwise Boolean operations to constant folding. Modify partial redundancy elimination to use bit vectors for dataflow calculations and debug the dataflow equations. check-in: 71a4e793a1 user: kbk tags: kbk-pre
2018-11-10
22:17
Use the lexical-name algorithm for 'altered' for now. May change to value-driven later. check-in: 592020ed7a user: kbk tags: notworking, kbk-pre
19:10
Better copy prop exposes more opportunities for constant folding. check-in: edb0c23738 user: kbk tags: kbk-pre
18:41
Fix bug where reverse copy propagation crashed (triggered by fixing bug where reverse copy propagation never happened). Add code in specializer to detect and recover from errors thrown in procedure inlining. check-in: 3f9877077d user: kbk tags: kbk-pre
2018-11-09
03:48
Temporarily revert a change made to copyprop until the crash that it causes can be investigated. Add a loop inversion pass at the front of processing, so that every natural loop body is executed at least once and might have loop-invariant computations. Add more coding to partial redundancy elimination check-in: f141d962a5 user: kbk tags: kbk-pre
2018-11-04
23:49
