Math.ceil() is useful in various tight computational kernels and should be inlined. The self hosted JS version (possibly incomplete) is roughly 3.5x faster.

On my computer:
- with your ceil(): 538
- a local patch which only inlines the call to math_ceil_impl (without doing any inlining in assembly like MFloor does for Math.floor()): 305

There might still be room for improvement if we inline it directly in assembly.

Do you happen to still have that patch? Inlining is faster but that's still much better than what we're doing now :)

Jan, here it is. It only inlines for the case where arg is a double and the return value is a double, which is hit in this test case. Feel free to review it if you think it's worth it :)

Inlining in the other case (input is a double and returned value is an int32) shouldn't be hard to do: some factoring would be needed to avoid too much code duplication with MFloor. I thought we could use the fact that for all non-integers x, ceil(x) == floor(x) + 1 (that still holds for +/- Infinity and NaN), but x being a MIRType_Double doesn't make it necessarily a non-int. I will work on that probably later, unless somebody beats me to it :)

Inline ceil in some cases

Awesome, thanks!

I set leave open as we'd like some asm inlining too for the other case.

Attached patch Missing casesSplinter Review
When investigating the trigonometrics interpolations made for cos / sin in v8's math.js file, I saw that identity stating that Math.ceil == -Math.floor(-x). Fair enough, here's a free optimization for the last missing inlining case.

Missing cases

Review of attachment 8375610 [details] [diff] [review]:

Looks good, but can you add a jit-test like this:

function ceil(x) { return Math.ceil(x); }

assertEq(ceil(1.1), 2);
assertEq(ceil(-1.1), -1);
assertEq(ceil(-3), -3);
assertEq(ceil(-0), -0);

We should Ion compile this function with --ion-eager and inline the call. Then the last call should trigger a bailout, right? Please verify this is what happens. r=me with that.

That's right, this is what's happening with your test case. I have also added cases for x == 0, since if Math.ceil is inlined as the Double -> Int32 variant (and thus uses the Floor trick), MFloor will bail out as it sees -0. Also added float32 tests for sanity.
