Description Andrew Pinski 2005-11-03 01:15:13 UTC
Take the following code:
int f(void)
  static int i;
  int i1;
  i1 = i;
  if (i1 == 0)
    i = i1 = 2;
  return i1;
Currently we generate:
    movl i.1285, %eax
    pushl   %ebp
    movl %esp, %ebp
    testl   %eax, %eax
    jne .L7
    movl $2, %ecx
    movl $2, %eax
    movl %ecx, i.1285
    popl %ebp

Why is 2 in two different registers (I think the issue here is really a target issue)?  But should postreload CSE detect this or postreload GCSE?

on x86-64 I get:

f:      movl    i.0(%rip), %eax
        testl   %eax, %eax
        jne     .L2
        movb    $2, %al
        movl    $2, i.0(%rip)
.L2:    rep ; ret

$ pr24647.c.t97.final_cleanup
f() {
  static int i;
  int i1;
  static int i;
<bb 0>:
  i1 = i;
  if (i1 == 0) goto <L0>; else goto <L1>;
  i = 2;
  i1 = 2;
  return i1;

That is what I get on x86 also now:
        movl    i.1523, %eax
        pushl   %ebp
        movl    %esp, %ebp
        testl   %eax, %eax
        jne     .L2
        movl    $2, i.1523
        movb    $2, %al
        popl    %ebp

But just change "== 0" to "!= 0" and you get the problem still.  Also this is a code size issue for -Os as movl with a constant takes up too much space.

Trunk today:

        movl    f()::i, %eax
        testl   %eax, %eax
        jne     .L1		# or je for the != case
        movl    $2, f()::i
        movl    $2, %eax
