26. Weighted register allocation for trees • Sethi-Ullman’s algorithm generates code for side-effect-free expressions yields minimal number of registers • Phase 0: check side-effect-free condition • Phase 1: Assign weights (weight = number of registers needed) • Leaf weight known (usually 0 or 1) • Internal node weight • w(left) > w(right) then w = left • w(right) > w(left) then w = right • w(right) = w(left) then w = left + 1 • Phase 2: translate heavier child first • Can be done by rewriting the expression such that heavier expressions appear first and then using improved cgen

27. Example _t0 = cgen( a+(b+(c*d)) )+ and * are commutative operators

28. Assigning weights _t0 = cgen( a+(b+(c*d)) )+ and * are commutative operators + w=2 a + w=1 w=2 b w=1 w=2 * c d w=1 w=1

29. Rewriting the expression _t0 = cgen( a+(b+(c*d)) )+ and * are commutative operators + w=2 a + w=1 w=2 b w=1 w=2 * c d w=1 w=1 Rewriting expression yields:_t0 = cgen( ((c*d)+b)+a )

31. Overview of IR optimization • Formalisms and Terminology • Control-flow graphs • Basic blocks • Local optimizations • Speeding up small pieces of a function • Global optimizations • Speeding up functions as a whole • The dataflow framework • Defining and implementing a wide class of optimizations

32. Program Analysis • In order to optimize a program, the compiler has to be able to reason about the properties of that program • An analysis is called sound if it never asserts an incorrect fact about a program • All the analyses we will discuss in this class are sound • (Why?)

33. Soundness int x; int y; if (y < 5) x = 137; else x = 42; Print(x); “At this point in the program, xholds some integer value”

34. Soundness int x; int y; if (y < 5) x = 137; else x = 42; Print(x); “At this point in the program, xis either 137 or 42”

35. Soundness int x; int y; if (y < 5) x = 137; else x = 42; Print(x); “At this point in the program, xis 137”

36. Soundness int x; int y; if (y < 5) x = 137; else x = 42; Print(x); “At this point in the program, xis either 137,42, or 271”

37. Semantics-preserving optimizations • An optimization is semantics-preserving if it does not alter the semantics of the original program • Examples: • Eliminating unnecessary temporary variables • Computing values that are known statically at compile-time instead of runtime • Evaluating constant expressions outside of a loop instead of inside • Non-examples: • Replacing bubble sort with quicksort (why?) • The optimizations we will consider in this class are all semantics-preserving

38. A formalism for IR optimization • Every phase of the compiler uses some new abstraction: • Scanning uses regular expressions • Parsing uses CFGs • Semantic analysis uses proof systems and symbol tables • IR generation uses ASTs • In optimization, we need a formalism that captures the structure of a program in a way amenable to optimization

39. Visualizing IR • main: • _tmp0 = Call _ReadInteger; • a = _tmp0; • _tmp1 = Call _ReadInteger; • b = _tmp1; • _L0: • _tmp2 = 0; • _tmp3 = b == _tmp2; • _tmp4 = 0; • _tmp5 = _tmp3 == _tmp4; • IfZ _tmp5 Goto _L1; • c = a; • a = b; • _tmp6 = c % a; • b = _tmp6; • Goto _L0; • _L1: • Push a; • Call _PrintInt;

40. Visualizing IR • main: • _tmp0 = Call _ReadInteger; • a = _tmp0; • _tmp1 = Call _ReadInteger; • b = _tmp1; • _L0: • _tmp2 = 0; • _tmp3 = b == _tmp2; • _tmp4 = 0; • _tmp5 = _tmp3 == _tmp4; • IfZ _tmp5 Goto _L1; • c = a; • a = b; • _tmp6 = c % a; • b = _tmp6; • Goto _L0; • _L1: • Push a; • Call _PrintInt;

41. Visualizing IR start • main: • _tmp0 = Call _ReadInteger; • a = _tmp0; • _tmp1 = Call _ReadInteger; • b = _tmp1; • _L0: • _tmp2 = 0; • _tmp3 = b == _tmp2; • _tmp4 = 0; • _tmp5 = _tmp3 == _tmp4; • IfZ _tmp5 Goto _L1; • c = a; • a = b; • _tmp6 = c % a; • b = _tmp6; • Goto _L0; • _L1: • Push a; • Call _PrintInt; _tmp0 = Call _ReadInteger; a = _tmp0; _tmp1 = Call _ReadInteger; b = _tmp1; _tmp2 = 0; _tmp3 = b == _tmp2; _tmp4 = 0; _tmp5 = _tmp3 == _tmp4; IfZ _tmp5 Goto _L1; c = a; a = b; _tmp6 = c % a; b = _tmp6; Goto _L0; Push a; Call _PrintInt; end

42. Basic blocks • A basic block is a sequence of IR instructions where • There is exactly one spot where control enters the sequence, which must be at the start of the sequence • There is exactly one spot where control leaves the sequence, which must be at the end of the sequence • Informally, a sequence of instructions that always execute as a group

43. Control-Flow Graphs A control-flow graph (CFG) is a graph of the basic blocks in a function The term CFG is overloaded – from here on out, we'll mean “control-flow graph” and not “context free grammar” Each edge from one basic block to another indicates that control can flow from the end of the first block to the start of the second block There is a dedicated node for the start and end of a function

44. Types of optimizations • An optimization is local if it works on just a single basic block • An optimization is global if it works on an entire control-flow graph • An optimization is interprocedural if it works across the control-flow graphs of multiple functions • We won't talk about this in this course

45. Basic blocks exercise • int main() { • int x; • int y; • int z; • y = 137; • if (x == 0) • z = y; • else • x = y; • { • START: • _t0 = 137; • y = _t0; • IfZ x Goto _L0; • t1 = y; • z = _t1; • Goto END: • _L0: • _t2 = y; • x = _t2; • END: Divide the code into basic blocks

46. Control-flow graph exercise • int main() { • int x; • int y; • int z; • y = 137; • if (x == 0) • z = y; • else • x = y; • { • START: • _t0 = 137; • y = _t0; • IfZ x Goto _L0; • t1 = y; • z = _t1; • Goto END: • _L0: • _t2 = y; • x = _t2; • END: Draw the control-flow graph

47. Control-flow graph exercise • int main() { • int x; • int y; • int z; • y = 137; • if (x == 0) • z = y; • else • x = y; • { start _t0 = 137; y = _t0; IfZ x Goto _L0; _t1 = y; z = _t1; _t2 = y; x = _t2; End

48. Local optimizations • int main() { • int x; • int y; • int z; • y = 137; • if (x == 0) • z = y; • else • x = y; • { start _t0 = 137; y = _t0; IfZ x Goto _L0; _t1 = y; z = _t1; _t2 = y; x = _t2; start

49. Local optimizations • int main() { • int x; • int y; • int z; • y = 137; • if (x == 0) • z = y; • else • x = y; • { start _t0 = 137; y = _t0; IfZ x Goto _L0; _t1 = y; z = _t1; _t2 = y; x = _t2; End

50. Local optimizations • int main() { • int x; • int y; • int z; • y = 137; • if (x == 0) • z = y; • else • x = y; • { start y = 137; IfZ x Goto _L0; _t1 = y; z = _t1; _t2 = y; x = _t2; End
