[PATCH 00/27] tcg: Simplify temporary usage
Posted by Richard Henderson 1 year ago
Based-on: 20230126043824.54819-1-richard.henderson@linaro.org
("[PATCH v5 00/36] tcg: Support for Int128 with helpers")

The biggest pitfall for new users of TCG is the fact that "normal"
temporaries die at branches, and we must therefore use a different
"local" temporary in that case.

The following patch set changes that, so that the "normal" temporary
is the one that lives across branches, and there is a special temporary
that dies at the end of the extended basic block, and this special
case is reserved for tcg internals.

TEMP_LOCAL is renamed TEMP_TB, which I believe to be more explicit and
less confusing.  TEMP_NORMAL is removed entirely.

I thought about putting in a proper full-power liveness analysis pass.
This would have eliminated the differences between all non-global
temporaries, and would have noticed when TEMP_LOCAL finally dies
within a translation and avoid any final writeback.
But I came to the conclusion that it was too expensive in runtime,
and so retaining some distinction in the types was required.

In addition, I found that the usage of temps within plugin-gen.c
(9 per guest memory operation) meant that we *must* have some form
of temp that can be re-used.  (There is one x86 instruction which
generates 62 memory operations; 62 * 9 == 558, which is larger than
our current TCG_MAX_TEMPS.)

However I did add a new liveness pass which, with a single pass over
the opcode stream, can see that a TEMP_LOCAL is only live within a
single extended basic block, and thus may be transformed to TEMP_EBB.

With this, and by not recycling TEMP_LOCAL, we can get identical code
out of the backend even when changing the front end translators are
adjusted to use TEMP_LOCAL for everything.

Benchmarking one test case, qemu-arm linux-test, the new liveness pass
comes in at about 1.6% on perf, but I can't see any difference in
wall clock time before and after the patch set.

I ran yesterday linux-user SPEC06 benchmarks from your tcg-life branch.
I do see perf regressions for two workloads (sjeng and xalancbmk).
With perf(1) I see liveness_pass* are at 0.00%, so I wonder: is it
possible that the emitted code isn't quite the same?

Happy to run more tests if helpful. Results below.

Thanks,
		Emilio

Everything that I checked by hand was the same, but it's possible.
It's a tedious process.  You'd definitely want to turn off ASR.

My current branch has __attribute__((noreturn)) added to all of the liveness passes, so 
that they don't get folded into tcg_gen_code.  But I still would expect 0%.

I've checked with -jitdump and perf whether there was any difference
in the generated code before vs. after for the most common TBs.
They were identical.

Benchmarking without ASR didn't make a difference, unfortunately.

I'll bisect the series in the next few days see exactly where
the perf regression begins so that at least we know where to look.
