- Subject: ARM 64-bit shift ICE
The patch below fixes gcc.c-torture/execute/builtin-bitops-1.c on ARM/Thumb-2
The story here is that ARM doesn't have a 64-bit shift operator, so these get
decomposed into something like:
low1 = (low >> n)
low1 |= (high << (32 - n)) /**/
low2 = high >> (32 - n)
low_result = (n > 32) ? low2 : low1;
Under some circumstances (typically involving loop bounds) the RTL optimizers
propagate a constant shift count into this sequence. Combine then squishes
the line marked /**/ into a single shift-and-or insn. If n > 32 then the shift
count will be negative. Of course this code is dead, but we don't figure that
out until much later.
In ARM mode we have an "r" alternative so the negative shift count can be
reloaded into a register. A bit lame, but DCE culls the whole thing before it
can do any real damage.
In Thumb-2 mode we try and match an "M" constraint (const_int between 0 and
31) with no other alternatives. This fails, and with nowhere else to go we
The fix is to restrict the predicate for these insns to only accept valid
const_int shift counts. This prevents combine forming the shift-or insn, and
we proceed as before.
Tested on arm-none-eabi
Applied to svn.
