Attached patch Implement splat. (obsolete) — Splinter Review
This patch optimizes a simd x4 ctor with all plane arguments the same to use the shufps instruction.

A challenge using this instruction for splat is that the source and destination need to be in the same register. For a float32x4 the patch uses defineReuseInput() for this, and I hope this will work as intended give the input is a float32 and the output a float32x4?

It was not clear if a new MIR class should have been created, or SimdValueX4 reused with all arguments the same?

The patch does not yet define splat, just optimizes the ctor.

Anyway this was adequate to confirm that this optimization gives a good performance improvement for the Flappy Bird demo. The SIMD version is now 75% fast that the non-SIMD version.

Implement splat.

Review of attachment 8481797 [details] [diff] [review]:

This looks reasonable to me, off the top of my head. A dedicated class for Splat rather than making it a special-case of MSimdValueX4 sounds good, as I think splats will be common enough.

The defineReuseInput here looks right for x86/x64 using shufps, so the only problem here is that this is target-independent code here. I think splats will have to be lowered in */Lowering-*.cpp.

Thank you for the quick feedback.

* Moved the Lowering into the backends.

* Added a couple of tests.

Shall implement the Odin 'slat' support in a follow up patch. Optimizing the constructor is enough for the demos, and we need to land this asap.

Please leave open to add the Odin 'splat' support.

Add 'splat' backend support and optimize constructors to use this.

int32x4 splat should use pshufd instead of shufps to avoid a domain crossing penalty. pshufd(0, output, output).

You can assert r == output here, to sanity-check that the defineReusedInput did its job.

Just splitting the patch into two parts: implementation of splat vs use it in Odin
Attachment #8481933 - Attachment is obsolete: true
Attachment #8482263 - Flags: review+
Adds proper support for int32x4.splat and float32x4 in Odin.

- int32x4.splat(x) === int32x4(x, x, x, x);
- same rules as the tuple constructors: int32x4.splat accepts intish and float32x4.splat accepts signed, unsigned, double?, floatish.

We might have a problem here, see the unaligned movaps storing to the stack:

   0x00007f2629a030a8:	cvtsd2ss %xmm0,%xmm1
   0x00007f2629a030ac:	shufps $0x0,%xmm1,%xmm1
   0x00007f2629a030b0:	movss  0x4(%rsp),%xmm0
   0x00007f2629a030b6:	shufps $0x0,%xmm0,%xmm0
   0x00007f2629a030ba:	movaps %xmm0,%xmm2
   0x00007f2629a030bd:	movaps %xmm0,0x4(%rsp)    <<<<<<<<<<

I might have missed some important point wrt register targeting etc.

Perhaps add a JS_ASSERT(global->simdOperationOp() == Splat) (with \n before and after)?

Alternatively, I wonder if we could generalize CheckBinarySimd+CheckUnarySimd into an n-ary CheckSimdCall.

Here's some of the close debug dump. Note the blendvps instruction uses the xmm0 register as an input and this can be seen to cause a spill below that tickles this problem.
