           Summary: scalarrepl overly aggressive with large arrays
           Product: new-bugs
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: new bugs
        AssignedTo: unassignedbugs at nondot.org
        ReportedBy: sharparrow1 at yahoo.com

#include <string.h>
void memtest1 (char* dst, char* src)
  char temp[100];
  memcpy (&temp, src, 100);
  memcpy (dst, &temp, 100); 

The generated assembly for X86 is about 400 instructions, which is clearly
ridiculous.  The issue is that scalarrepl is turning this into 100 loads, all
of which get spilled to the stack, then 100 stores, all of which have to be
reloaded from the stack.

On a side note, it might be worth optimizing code like this to memmove.
