I've created a branch for my allocator project which is called Yet
Another Register Allocator (or YARA - yet another recursive acronim).
I am think I reached the point when my work on a public branch can
be made. I am focused only on x86 right now. So YARA will work only
for x86 and probably for x86_64 for some tests (at least for SPEC).
There is no way that it will work for PPC, Itanium or other targets
Is this related to, and have you considered the long-term proposal for
improving register allocation that was posted on the thislist a while ago?
I think the more projects for allocator exist, the better it is for
gcc. I believe that improvement of reload done by Bernd is important
too. Although it is harder for me because gcc is a moving target and i
see considerable improvements in reload for the last year (e.g perlbmk
was 25% slower with the current gcc allocator 9 months ago and now the
gap is only 10%).
