Re: [RFA:] Fix PR target/18701, address adjustment error withparadoxical mem subregs. (Disallow them, I say!)

Hi H-P,

Ah, I've now analysed through the "tryptophan haze".  The bit that I
found confusing was your e-mail contained two examples of unsafe
recombinations followed by two patches.  The second example corresponded
to your second patch, with which I agreed and originally approved.
The hangup was that I didn't/don't think the first transformation you
gave is incorrect.  Fortunately, that doesn't matter as your first
patch has nothing to do with your first example!

This is also OK for mainline, but with one minor tweak.  Could you
move your change to correctly update imode and isize from the MEM_P
clause you propose, into the "GET_CODE (x) === SUBREG" clause before
the call to gen_lowpart_common?  Conceptually, its when we change
the value of "x" that we need to update it's mode (imode) and it's
size (isize).

Something like:

<   if (GET_CODE (x) == SUBREG && MEM_P (SUBREG_REG (x)))
<     {
<       x = SUBREG_REG (x);
<       if (GET_MODE (x) == omode)
< 	  return x;
<     }
>   if (GET_CODE (x) == SUBREG && MEM_P (SUBREG_REG (x)))
>     {
>       x = SUBREG_REG (x);
>	imode = GET_MODE (x);
>       if (imode == omode)
>         return x;
>       isize = GET_MODE_SIZE (imode);
>     }

but with a suitable comment and ChangeLog entry, blah, blah, blah...

If the above revisions successfully bootstrap and regression test for
you and continue to resolve PR target/18701, consider it preapproved.

We can now resume our scheduled snowball fight on why the middle-end
can't eliminate paradoxical subregs of MEMs until target maintainers
upgrade from LOAD_EXTEND_OP to using explicit zero_extend and/or
sign_extend in their machine descriptions  :>
