The branch "master" has been updated in SBCL: via 62f92bd02e9c04a46893ff9e7b88acdaeab230fa (commit) from 423b1f8cba83d16e57e852a51cf5d51ef709b2ed (commit)  Log  commit 62f92bd02e9c04a46893ff9e7b88acdaeab230fa Author: Lutz Euler <lutz.euler@...> Date: Mon Apr 29 22:35:01 2013 +0200 Improve scaling of type derivation for LOG{AND,IOR,XOR}. If the types of the arguments of LOG{AND,IOR,XOR} are known to be ranges of nonnegative integers the compiler currently derives the range of the result using straightforward implementations of algorithms from "Hacker's Delight". These take quadratical time in the number of bits of the inputs in the worst case, potentially leading to unacceptably long compilation times. (The algorithms are based on loops over the bits of the inputs, doing calculations during each iteration that are themselves linear in the number of bits of their operands.) Instead implement bitparallel algorithms I have found that take linear time in all cases. While their runtime therefore is limited to much smaller values for large inputs, it is comparable to that of the current algorithms for small inputs, too; the new deriver for LOGXOR is in fact faster than the old one by a factor of two to ten already in the latter case. The (existing) test for these derivers compares their results with those from a bruteforce algorithm for all O(N^4) many pairs of input ranges with endpoints from the set of Nbit unsigned integers. The bruteforce algorithm needs to consider O(N^2) input pairs for each pair of ranges, making the total runtime O(N^6). Therefore the test normally runs with N = 5. I have tested all three new derivers successfully with N = 7. Replace LOG{AND,IOR,XOR}DERIVEUNSIGNED{LOW,HIGH}BOUND with LOG{AND,IOR,XOR}DERIVEUNSIGNEDBOUNDS to make it possible to evaluate expressions only once that the calculations for the low and the high bound have in common. The callers always need both bounds anyway. Adapt the test to this change. (It runs twice as fast now due to the brute force loop calculating both bounds in one go.) Add a test for the scaling behaviour. This needs a function to measure runtimes over potentially large ranges; add this to testutil.lisp. Fixes lp#1096444.

To avoid that, I have devised and +;;; implemented variations of these algorithms that achieve linear +;;; runtime in all cases. +;;; +;;; Like Warren, let's start with the high bound on LOGIOR to explain +;;; how this is done. To follow, please read Warren's explanations on +;;; his "maxOR" function and compare this with how the second return +;;; value of LOGIORDERIVEUNSIGNEDBOUNDS below is calculated. +;;; +;;; "maxOR" loops starting from the left until it finds a position where +;;; both B and D are 1 and where it is possible to decrease one of these +;;; bounds by setting this bit in it to 0 and all following ones to 1 +;;; without the resulting value getting below the corresponding lower +;;; bound (A or C). This is done by calculating the modified values +;;; during each iteration where both B and D are 1 and comparing them +;;; against the lower bounds. +;;; The trick to avoid the loop is to exchange the order of the steps: +;;; First determine from which position rightwards it would be allowed +;;; to change B or D in this way and have the result be larger or equal +;;; than A or C respectively and then find the leftmost position equal +;;; to this or to the right of it where both B and D are 1. +;;; It is quite simple to find from where rightwards B could be modified +;;; this way: This is the leftmost position where B has a 1 and A a 0, +;;; or, cheaper to calculate, the leftmost position where A and B +;;; differ. Thus (INTEGERLENGTH (LOGXOR A B)) gives us this position +;;; where a result of 1 corresponds to the rightmost bit position. As we +;;; don't care which of B or D we modify we can take the maximum of this +;;; value and of (INTEGERLENGTH (LOGXOR C D)). +;;; The rest is equally simple: Build a mask of 1 bits from the thusly +;;; found position rightwards, LOGAND it with B and D and feed that into +;;; INTEGERLENGTH. From this build another mask and LOGIOR it with B +;;; and D to set the desired bits. +;;; The special cases where A equals B and/or C equals D are covered by +;;; the same code provided the mask generator treats an argument of 1 +;;; the same as 0, which both ZEROES and ONES do. +;;; +;;; To calculate the low bound on LOGIOR we need to treat X and Y +;;; independently for longer but the basic idea stays the same. +;;; +;;; LOGANDDERIVEUNSIGNEDBOUNDS can be derived by sufficiently many +;;; applications of DeMorgan's law from LOGIORDERIVEUNSIGNEDBOUNDS. +;;; The implementation additionally avoids work (that is, calculations +;;; of one's complements) by using the identity (INTEGERLENGTH X) = +;;; (INTEGERLENGTH (LOGNOT X)) and observing that ZEROES is cheaper +;;; than ONES. +;;; +;;; For the low bound on LOGXOR we use Warren's formula +;;; minXOR(a, b, c, d) = minAND(a, b, !d, !c)  minAND(!b, !a, c, d) +;;; where "!" is bitwise negation and "" is bitwise or. Both minANDs +;;; are implemented as in LOGANDDERIVEUNSIGNEDBOUNDS (the part for +;;; the first result), sharing the first LOGXOR and INTEGERLENGTH +;;; calculations as (LOGXOR A B) = (LOGXOR (LOGNOT B) (LOGNOT A)). +;;; +;;; For the high bound on LOGXOR Warren's formula seems unnecessarily +;;; complex. Instead, with (LOGNOT (LOGXOR X Y)) = (LOGXOR X (LOGNOT Y)) +;;; we have +;;; maxXOR(a, b, c, d) = !minXOR(a, b, !d, !c) +;;; and rewriting minXOR as above yields +;;; maxXOR(a, b, c, d) = !(minAND(a, b, c, d)  minAND(!b, !a, !d, !c)) +;;; This again shares the first LOGXOR and INTEGERLENGTH calculations +;;; between both minANDs and with the ones for the low bound. +;;; +;;; LEU, 20130429. + +(defun logandderiveunsignedbounds (x y) + (let* ((a (numerictypelow x)) + (b (numerictypehigh x)) + (c (numerictypelow y)) + (d (numerictypehigh y)) + (lengthxorx (integerlength (logxor a b))) + (lengthxory (integerlength (logxor c d)))) + (values + (let* ((mask (zeroes (max lengthxorx lengthxory))) + (index (integerlength (logior mask a c)))) + (logand a c (zeroes (1 index)))) + (let* ((maskx (ones lengthxorx)) + (masky (ones lengthxory)) + (indexx (integerlength (logand maskx b (lognot d)))) + (indexy (integerlength (logand masky d (lognot b))))) + (cond ((= indexx indexy) + ;; Both indexes are 0 here. + (logand b d)) + ((> indexx indexy) + (logand (logior b (ones (1 indexx))) d)) + (t + (logand (logior d (ones (1 indexy))) b))))))) (defun logandderivetypeaux (x y &optional sameleaf) (when sameleaf @@ 86,8 +153,8 @@ ((null ylen) (specifiertype `(unsignedbyte* ,xlen))) (t  (let ((low (logandderiveunsignedlowbound x y))  (high (logandderiveunsignedhighbound x y))) + (multiplevaluebind (low high) + (logandderiveunsignedbounds x y) (specifiertype `(integer ,low ,high))))) ;; X is positive, but Y might be negative.
