Re: [GCC][PATCH][mid-end] Optimize x * copysign (1.0, y) [Patch (1/2)]


Hi Andrew,

Thanks! I'll put together the rest today or tomorrow.
Sorry for the slow response on this one.

Tamar

I updated the patch to handle all constants and not just -1.0.

Also something like attached (NOTE this is NOT a full patch and needs
the xorsign optabs part of your patch) should work for the expand side
rather than creating a new builtin.  There still needs to handling of
the vector based copysign.  But you should get the general idea.  I
would like to see more of these special expand patterns really.

NOTE you can remove the target hook part and just check if xorsign
optab is there.  I don't know if that is what we want to do if not
allow for generic expanding of this.

Thanks,
Andrew Pinski
