[PATCH 3/7] ifcvt: Improve costs handling for noce_convert_multiple.

Robin Dapp rdapp@linux.ibm.com
Fri Jun 25 16:09:01 GMT 2021


When noce_convert_multiple is called the original costs are not yet
initialized.  Therefore, up to now, costs were only ever unfairly
compared against COSTS_N_INSNS (2).  This would lead to
default_noce_conversion_profitable_p () rejecting all but the most
contrived of sequences.

This patch temporarily initialized the original costs by counting
a compare and all the sets inside the then_bb.
