           Summary: Strength reduction misses IV reuse opportunities on 64-
                    bit targets
           Product: libraries
           Version: trunk
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Loop Optimizer
        AssignedTo: unassignedbugs at nondot.org
        ReportedBy: djg at cray.com

The strength reduction pass is causing the code generator to miss opportunities
for using complex addressing modes.

For this test case:

define void %foo(double* %y) {
        br label %bb

        %i = phi i64 [ 0, %entry ], [ %k, %bb ]
        %j = getelementptr double* %y, i64 %i
        store double 0.000000e+00, double* %j
        %k = add i64 %i, 1
        %n = icmp eq i64 %k, 0
        br bool %n, label %return, label %bb

        ret void

The strength reduction pass changes the output on x86-64 to have two induction

        %iv..inc = add i64 %iv., 1
        %iv.1.inc = add i64 %iv.1, 8

which causes the codegen to produce this:

.LBB1_1:        #bb
        movq $0, (%rdi)
        addq $8, %rdi
        incq %rax
        cmpq $0, %rax
        jne .LBB1_1     #bb

instead of this:

.LBB1_1:        #bb
        movq $0, (%rdi,%rax,8)
        incq %rax
        cmpq $0, %rax
        jne .LBB1_1     #bb

Here's a patch that fixes this.
