[patch] Fix PR rtl-optimization/87727
Thu Dec 20 12:09:00 GMT 2018
this is a regression introduced on the SPARC by the somewhat controversial
combiner change for hard registers: the compiler can no longer apply the leaf
registers optimization to a small function so a register window is now used.
The combiner change might be an overall win, but my understanding is that it's
dependent on the target and SPARC seems to be in the wrong basket: almost all
changes to the gcc.c-torture/compile testsuite at -O2 are pessimizations in
the form of additional move instructions between registers on function entry.
Clearly that's counter-productive for a LEAF_REGISTERS target like SPARC so
the proposed fix is to re-enable hard register combining for leaf registers.
Tested on SPARC/Solaris 11, OK for the mainline?

* combine.c (cant_combine_insn_p): On a LEAF_REGISTERS target, combine
again moves from leaf hard registers.
