Re: povray: Revised numbers
So the tree-ssa compilation times are not too bad, runtime, too. Using
-ftree-sra -ftree-points-to=andersen doesn't improve runtime
tree-sra is on by default, so i don't know why you'd think that would
as for points to, as i've stated multiple times before, it's not going
to help much (more than 1%) until I finish the code that uses the
results to disambiguate what vars are call clobbered, alias global
memory, and point to global memory.
Most of our optimizations are *not* blocked by aliasing other
variables, they are blocked by thinking variables are call clobbered,
alias global memory, or point to global memory.
One of the reasons i haven't requested that points-to be turned on by
default is that it won't have a performance impact until i've finished
the aforementioned code.
