            Bug ID: 23857
           Summary: [AArch64] Sutraction interferes with umin generation
           Product: tools
           Version: trunk
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal

         Component: opt

The following code will not generate umin/umax instructions because of the
subtract used to compute a.

void test(unsigned char *in0,
          unsigned char *in1,
          unsigned char *out,
          unsigned n) {
  unsigned i;
  unsigned char a, b;

  for (i = 0; i < n; i++) 
      a = 255 - in0[i]; // Replacing with a = in0[i] allows us to generate umin
      b = in1[i];
      out[i] = (unsigned char) (a < b ? a : b);

Reproduce with:

clang -cc1 -triple aarch64--linux-gnueabi test.c -S -o out.s -mllvm
-force-vector-width=16 -O3 -vectorize-loops

I've also attached a.ll which contains two similar functions obtained from this
code. This shows that removing the xor (sub) operation allows us to generate

opt -O3 aa.ll -o aa1.ll -S -force-vector-width=16
bin/llc -O3 aa1.ll -o aa1.s
