A code-generator generator for multi-output instructions
We address the problem of instruction selection for Multi-Output Instructions (MOIs), producing more than one result. Such inherently parallel hardware instructions are very common in the area of Application Specific Instruction Set Processors (ASIPs) and Digital Signal Processors (DSPs) which are frequently used in Systemon-Chips as programmable cores. In order to provide high-level programmability, and consequently guarantee widespread acceptance, sophisticated compiler support for these programmable cores is of high importance. Since it is not possible to model MultiOutput Instructions as trees in the compiler’s Intermediate Representation (IR), traditional approaches for code selection are not sufficient. Extending traditional code-generation approaches for MOI-selection is essentially a graph covering problem, which is known to be NP-complete. We present a new heuristic algorithm incorporated in a retargetable code-generator generator capable of exploiting arbitrary inherentl...
