I gave it a try with Maxim's patch from ticket #37053 and it degraded
performance pretty badly (> 30%), and galgel degraded more than 75%.
Both 32-bit and 64-bit saw degradations.
The patch in PR37053 is the one adding target hook. This patch should
not affect the generated code at all. If it does, can you please send
the the difference in dumps? I understand that this patch does not seem
to be a favorite here, but I'm curious where I've made a mistake.
The mistake is in rs6000_commutative_operand_precedence(); the
precedence value should be decrement for everything but the pointers,
current code does exactly the opposite.
The hook implementation should be:
rs6000_commutative_operand_precedence (const_rtx op, int value)
/* Prefer pointer objects over non pointer objects.
For rationale see PR28690. */
if (GET_RTX_CLASS (GET_CODE (op)) == RTX_OBJ
&& ((REG_P (op) && REG_POINTER (op))
|| (MEM_P (op) && MEM_POINTER (op))))
/* value = -1 */;
/* value = -2 */
