3838 TODO:
39 * In commit r142152 vector legalization was set to element promotion per
40 default. This breaks half vectors (e.g. v2i32) badly as they get element
41 promoted to much slower types (v2i64).
43 * Many CellSPU specific codegen tests only grep & count the number of
44 instructions, not checking their place with FileCheck. There have also
45 been some commits that change the CellSPU checks, some of which might
46 have not been thoroughly scrutinized w.r.t. to the changes they cause in SPU
47 assembly. (especially since about the time of r142152)
49 * Some of the i64 math have huge tablegen rules, which sometime cause
50 tablegen to run out of memory. See e.g. bug 8850. i64 arithmetics
51 should probably be done with libraries.
3953 * Create a machine pass for performing dual-pipeline scheduling specifically
4054 for CellSPU, and insert branch prediction instructions as needed.
