             Bug #: 13392
           Summary: SROA of doubles confuses ARM codegen
           Product: libraries
           Version: trunk
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P
         Component: Backend: ARM
        AssignedTo: unassignedbugs at nondot.org
        ReportedBy: stoklund at 2pi.dk
                CC: llvmbugs at cs.uiuc.edu
    Classification: Unclassified

I added a test case to the nightly test suite:

A function multiplies two matrices and puts the result in a local buffer before
copying it out:

static void mul4(double *Out, const double A[4][4], const double B[4][4]) {
  double Res[16];
  Res[0] = ...
  Res[15] = ...
  for (n = 0; n < 16; ++n)
    Out[n] = Res[n];

SROA converts the double[16] buffer to an i1024:

 %188 = fadd double %184, %187
 %189 = bitcast double %188 to i64
 %190 = zext i64 %189 to i1024
 %191 = shl nuw nsw i1024 %190, 768
 %ins = or i1024 %mask, %191
 %222 = bitcast double* %c to i1024*
 store i1024 %ins, i1024* %222, align 4
 ret void

This completely confuses ARM codegen which is unable to recover the original
stores. Instead it copies the doubles to the GPRs and stores i32s:

        vmov    r12, r9, d13
        str.w   r12, [r0, #96]
        str.w   r9, [r0, #100]

We wanted a simple f64 store:

        vstr   d13, [r0, #96]

The problem seems to begin with LegalizeTypes. It breaks the i1024 store into
i32 stores because i64 is not a legal ARM type.
