            Bug ID: 21242
           Summary: InstCombine: mul -> shl shouldn't preserve NSW
           Product: libraries
           Version: trunk
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P
         Component: Scalar Optimizations
          Assignee: unassignedbugs at nondot.org
          Reporter: nunoplopes at sapo.pt

The transformation in InstCombineMulDivRem.cpp, lines 156-187, shouldn't
preserve NSW.

Here's why:

Pre: isPowerOf2(C1)
%r = mul nsw %x, C1
%r = shl nsw %x, log2(C1)

Done: 1
ERROR: Domain of poisoness of Target is smaller than Source's for i2 %r

%x i2 = 1 (0x1)
C1 i2 = 2 (0x2)
Source value: 2 (0x2)
Target value: poison

The multiplication doesn't overflow (1*-2 = -2), but the shift does (goes from
positive 1 to negative -2).
A fix is to propagate only NUW, and discard NSW.
