            Bug ID: 32802
           Summary: [BranchFolding] Investigate reducing the default value
                    of tail-merge-size
           Product: libraries
           Version: trunk
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P
         Component: Transformation Utilities
          Assignee: unassignedbugs at nondot.org

// Heuristic for tail merging (and, inversely, tail duplication).
// TODO: This should be replaced with a target query.
static cl::opt<unsigned>
          cl::desc("Min number of instructions to consider tail merging"),
                              cl::init(3), cl::Hidden);

Currently the tail-merge-size for duplicate BB tail merging is set to a default
value of 3 instructions, which prevents us from merging all the BBs that we
could otherwise (Bug #27136 and D30572). Additionally there appears to be no
testing of this feature at all.

Is the value purely for compile time reasons or does it have to have a value
that must correctly interact with tail-dup-placement-threshold?

Does the TODO comment suggesting making it target specific make sense?
