The second part of this patch: always store an object in DR_BASE of
data_reference structure.
With this part of the patch a loop in vect-73.c is temporarily not
vectorizable, it will be vectorized again with the third part of the patch
(coming up).

Until now, since DR_BASE_NAME was sometimes an address and sometimes an
object, it was incorrect to compare them.
The function array_base_name_differ_p now handles only pairs of objects.
For two pointers or for pointer and address of object we call (in
vect_base_addr_differ_p) alias_sets_conflict_p. Testcase is attached.

Bootstrapped and tested on ppc-darwin.
O.K. for mainline?


Changelog entry:

2005-02-19  Ira Rosen  <>

      * tree-data-ref.c (array_base_name_differ_p): Check that the bases
      exist and are objects. Remove checks for pointer.
      * tree-vectorizer.c (vect_create_addr_base_for_vector_ref): Use
      (vect_create_data_ref_ptr): Likewise.
      (vect_base_addr_differ_p): New function.
      (vect_analyze_data_ref_dependence): Call vect_base_addr_differ_p.
      (vect_analyze_pointer_ref_access): Add output parameter - ptr_init.
      Don't set the DR_BASE_NAME field of data-ref.
      (vect_get_memtag_and_dr): Use ptr_init instead of DR_BASE_NAME.
