            Bug ID: 27431
           Summary: cse or gvn should replace opposite icmp with xor by
           Product: libraries
           Version: trunk
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P
         Component: Scalar Optimizations
          Assignee: unassignedbugs at nondot.org
          Reporter: nlewycky at google.com

    Classification: Unclassified

Reduced testcase:

; ModuleID = 'gvn-icmp.ll'
target datalayout = "e-m:e-i64:64-f80:128-n8:16:32:64-S128"
target triple = "x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu"

declare void @use(i1)

define void @fn1(i32 %A) {
  %iszero = icmp eq i32 %A, 0
  %isnotzero = icmp ne i32 %A, 0  ;; %isnotzero = xor i1 %iszero, true
  tail call void @use(i1 %iszero)
  tail call void @use(i1 %isnotzero)
  ret void

Something in llvm should turn subsequent comparisons into nots of the original
comparison to expose further correlations between values. In particular they
should work across blocks, the right places for this might be early-cse and

Here's a larger C testcase, 77.c from Regehr's souper results:

  int a;
  char b;
  int fn1() { return a && b || a && b; }

If I apply the proposed transformation by hand, it reduces from 12 instructions
in 3 blocks down to a single block with load+load+icmp+icmp+and+zext+ret.
