Re: [PATCH] Don't decrease mem_cost for special MEMs, even with REG_EQUIV (PR rtl-optimization/52208)

On 02/16/2012 01:56 AM, Jakub Jelinek wrote:

As mentioned in the PR, if SET_SRC MEM (with REG_EQUIV note) isn't a MEM
that can be used in general operations, but requires some specialized
instruction to load it, decreasing its mem_cost results sometimes in
worse code, the MEM is loaded with a specialized insn, then stored into
a stack slot because e.g. a negative memory cost has been chosen as
cheapest, then loaded back from the stack slot.

This patch gives up if the MEM isn't general_operand.

Bootstrapped/regtested on x86_64-linux and i686-linux, ok for trunk?

Ok. Thanks, Jakub.
