The Effect of Code Reordering on Branch Prediction
Branch prediction accuracy is a very important factor for superscalarprocessor performance. The ability topredict the outcome of a branch allows the processor to effectively use a...

Reducing Branch Costs via Branch Alignment
Several researchers have proposed algorithms for basic block reordering. We call these branch alignment algorithms. The primary emphasis of these algorithms has been on improving ...

Improving Branch Prediction and Predicated Execution in Out-of-Order Processors
If-conversion is a compiler technique that reduces the misprediction penalties caused by hard-to-predict branches, transforming control dependencies into data dependencies. Althou...

Control Flow Graph Reconstruction for Assembly Language Programs with Delayed Instructions
Most software for embedded systems, including digital signal processing systems, is coded in assembly language. For both understanding the software and for reverse compiling it to...
