            Bug ID: 51461
           Summary: Missed accumulator recursion elimination
           Product: libraries
           Version: trunk
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P
         Component: Scalar Optimizations
          Assignee: unassignedbugs at nondot.org
          Reporter: llvm at rifkin.dev
                CC: llvm-bugs at lists.llvm.org

Of the following simple recursive functions, LLVM is able to eliminate
recursion for foo but not bar:

int foo(int n) {
    if(n <= 0) return 1;
    return 2 + foo(n - 1);
int bar(int n) {
    if(n <= 0) return 1;
    return 2 * bar(n - 1);

GCC optimizes both. https://godbolt.org/z/rozMcn6o4.
