            Bug ID: 16402
           Summary: BlockFrequency underflow leads to slow code for 7zip
           Product: libraries
           Version: trunk
          Hardware: PC
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P
         Component: Global Analyses
          Assignee: unassignedbugs at nondot.org

    Classification: Unclassified

In LzmaEnc_CodeOneBlock in LzmaEnc.c from MultiSouce/Benchmarks/7zip the block
frequency analysis returns 0 frequencies for blocks in the inner loop. The
frequency calculation hits 0 at some point and never recovers. This made
r184105, the change that made spill weight depend on BlockFrequencyInfo,
regress 7zip by 10% due to excessive spilling. Simply raising
BlockFrequency::ENTRY_FREQ recovers the regression.

Can we do something about this? Increasing ENTRY_FREQ looks like a band aid to
me, we could hit this again any time.
