            Bug ID: 20647
           Summary: Worse codegen than gcc for heaps of bit arith
           Product: libraries
           Version: 3.4
          Hardware: PC
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P
         Component: Backend: X86
          Assignee: unassignedbugs at nondot.org

Look here for a comparison and related source code side-by-side.


What I've noticed mainly is that while gcc performs the arith directly on the
memory location, llvm produces many more instructions because it chooses to
load it into a register first, perform the arith and then write it back. It
also generates twice as many ORs... not sure why.
