This is introduced with llvm-3.6.0svn r220138.

    [InstCombine] Do an about-face on how LLVM canonicalizes (cast (load
    ...)) and (load (cast ...)): canonicalize toward the former.
    Historically, we've tried to load using the type of the *pointer*, and
    tried to match that type as closely as possible removing as many pointer
    casts as we could and trading them for bitcasts of the loaded value.
    This is deeply and fundamentally wrong.
    Repeat after me: memory does not have a type! This was a hard lesson for
    me to learn working on SROA.
    There is only one thing that should actually drive the type used for
    a pointer, and that is the type which we need to use to load from that
    pointer. Matching up pointer types to the loaded value types is very
    useful because it minimizes the physical size of the IR required for
    no-op casts. Similarly, the only thing that should drive the type used
    for a loaded value is *how that value is used*! Again, this minimizes
    casts. And in fact, the *only* thing motivating types in any part of
    LLVM's IR are the types used by the operations in the IR. We should
    match them as closely as possible.
    I've ended up removing some tests here as they were testing bugs or
    behavior that is no longer present. Mostly though, this is just cleanup
    to let the tests continue to function as intended.
    The only fallout I've found so far from this change was SROA and I have
    fixed it to not be impeded by the different type of load. If you find
    more places where this change causes optimizations not to fire, those
    too are likely bugs where we are assuming that the type of pointers is
    "significant" for optimization purposes.

Comment 2 Jose Fonseca 2014-10-28 13:43:13 UTC
This is probably along the same lines as https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=85377

However it seems that, this time around, its not in an unit test, but that we're actually making some invalida assumptions about data alignment.

In short:
- vertex stride is not multiple of 16bytes
- but llvmpipe/draw/gallivm is probably generating code that assumes that the R32G32B32A32_FLOAT attribute is 16-byte aligned...

I think the bug is draw llvm code -- it can't assume that vertex elements are 16byte aligned.

In face, unless it advertises TRUE to
it shouldn't even assume it's 4-byte aligned. (And BTW, llvpipe should probably advertise TRUE for these.)

but it is overkill.  The right fix is to pass through the expected aligment as a new argument everywhere, such that only the code path

Over to you Roland..
Comment 6 Roland Scheidegger 2014-10-28 17:44:55 UTC
The analysis is spot on, I'll fix this. We can only really guarantee alignment for textures.
I am not sure what exactly to do with the potential non-4byte alignments. Setting the cap bits should force all elements to be 4 byte aligned, meaning for instance ordinary vbos with 3-byte rgb colors in them will have to be converted somewhere, which seems not desirable at least on x86, but other archs might require it.
