Subject Re: [Drlvm][Opt]How to avoid instrumentation's effect on Reg-Allocation?
Date Thu, 08 Feb 2007 15:17:34 GMT
If you do instrumentation in HIR you can't predict which registers will be
used in CG.
If you do instrumentation in LIR you can only assign predefined registers or
constraints to your operands, but you can't affect register allocation for
unassigned operands.
So if you think that RegAlloc does a bad job for you, this is RegAlloc issue
and must be fixed in RegAlloc.

+ Reg-allocator does change side-effects of your code. Loading EAX from a
stack in your example can have only 1 drawback: performance problem. Is
performance your problem here?
