I'm implementing a target-specific reorg pass, and one thing that I want to do
is for a given insn in the stream to find an instruction
in the stream that I can swap it with, without violating any dataflow dependencies.
The candidate instruction could be earlier or later in the stream.
I'm stuck on finding an approach to do this. It seems that using some of the dataflow
infrastructure is the right way to go, but I can't figure out the details.
can_move_insns_across looks like relevant, but it looks too heavyweight with quite a lot
I suppose somehow constructing regions of interchangeable instructions would be the way
to go, but I'm not sure how clean/cheap that would be outside the scheduler
Any ideas would be appreciated.
