Venkat,

This patch broke a number of MIPS tests, specifically mips32r6 tests
that look for the lsa instruction (load scaled address) which shifts one
register and then adds it to a second register.  I am not sure if this
needs to be addressed in combine.c or if we need to add a peephole
optimization to mips.md to handle the new instruction sequence.  What do
you think?  Is the change here what you would expect to see from your
patch?

With this C code:


signed short test (signed short *a, int index)
{
  return a[index];
}


GCC/combine for mips32r6 used to produce:

(insn 8 7 9 2 (set (reg/f:SI 203)
        (plus:SI (mult:SI (reg:SI 5 $5 [ index ])
                (const_int 2 [0x2]))
            (reg:SI 4 $4 [ a ]))) lsa.c:3 444 {lsa}
     (expr_list:REG_DEAD (reg:SI 5 $5 [ index ])
        (expr_list:REG_DEAD (reg:SI 4 $4 [ a ])
            (nil))))
(insn 15 10 16 2 (set (reg/i:SI 2 $2)
        (sign_extend:SI (mem:HI (reg/f:SI 203) [1 *_5+0 S2 A16])))
lsa.c:4 237 {*extendhisi2_seh}
     (expr_list:REG_DEAD (reg/f:SI 203)
        (nil)))

And would generate:

	lsa	$4,$5,$4,1
	lh	$2,0($4)
	

But now it produces:

(insn 7 4 8 2 (set (reg:SI 202)
        (ashift:SI (reg:SI 5 $5 [ index ])
            (const_int 1 [0x1]))) lsa.c:3 432 {*ashlsi3}
     (expr_list:REG_DEAD (reg:SI 5 $5 [ index ])
        (nil)))
(insn 8 7 9 2 (set (reg/f:SI 203)
        (plus:SI (reg:SI 4 $4 [ a ])
            (reg:SI 202))) lsa.c:3 13 {*addsi3}
     (expr_list:REG_DEAD (reg:SI 4 $4 [ a ])
        (expr_list:REG_DEAD (reg:SI 202)
            (nil)))
(insn 15 10 16 2 (set (reg/i:SI 2 $2)
        (sign_extend:SI (mem:HI (reg/f:SI 203) [1 *_5+0 S2 A16])))
lsa.c:4 237 {*extendhisi2_seh}
     (expr_list:REG_DEAD (reg/f:SI 203)
        (nil)))

Which generates:

	sll	$5,$5,1
	addu	$4,$4,$5
	lh	$2,0($4)
