[llvm-dev] Looking for suggestions: Inferring GPU memory accesses

As part of my research I want to investigate the relation between the
grid's geometry and the memory accesses of a kernel in common gpu
benchmarks (e.g Rodinia, Polybench etc). As a first step i want to
answer the following question:
- Given a kernel function with M possible memory accesses. For how many of
those M accesses we can statically infer its location given concrete values
for the grid/block and executing thread?
(Assume CUDA only for now)
My initial idea is to replace all uses of dim-related values, e.g:
and index related values, e.g:
with ConstantInts. Then run constant folding on the result and check how
many GEPs have constant values.
Would something like this work or are there complications I am not thinking
of? I'd appreciate any suggestions.
P.S i am new to LLVM
Thanks in advance,
