[cfe-dev] [OpenMP] Redundant store inside reduction loop body

I've encountered a peculiar code generation issue in a parallel-for-reduction.
Inside the per-thread reduction loop, I see a store to a stack slot that happens
*every iteration*, clobbering the value written by the previous one. The address
of that stack slot is later taken to pass to the inter-thread
reduction, but the store
is *not* hoisted outside the loop, while I'd expect it to happen just
once outside it.

Attached below are the code example that triggers this, and an annotated x86-64
assembly snippet from the outlined OMP function. The code was compiled using
clang++-12 Ubuntu focal unstable branch, using the command-line:
clang++-12 -fopenmp -O3 main.cpp -o main

I'm wondering whether this is some sort of bug, and in which component.


// main.cpp
#include <cstdio>
#include <memory>

double compute_dot_product(size_t n, double *xv, double *yv)
  double local = 0.0;
  #pragma omp parallel for reduction (+:local)
  for (size_t i = 0; i < n; i++) local += xv[i] * yv[i];
  return local;

int main(int argc, char **argv)
  constexpr size_t n = 0x1000;
  auto xv = std::make_unique<double[]>(n);
  auto yv = std::make_unique<double[]>(n);

  double result = compute_dot_product(n, xv.get(), yv.get());
  printf("result = %e\n", result);
  return 0;
