#5522 new bug

mc03 -O -fliberate-case -fspec-constr runs out of memory

I noticed that test mc03 runs out of memory compiled with -O -fliberate-case -fspec-constr.

-O + either extra option on its own isn't enough to trigger the issue..

stage2 --info output:

  • Type of failure changed from Compile-time crash to Compile-time performance bug

Thanks for the report.

Reproduced with HEAD in testsuite/tests/deSugar/should_run:

$ ulimit -v 1024000
$ ghc  -fforce-recomp --make mc03 -O -fliberate-case -fspec-constr 
[1 of 1] Compiling Main             ( mc03.hs, mc03.o )
ghc-stage2: out of memory (requested 1048576 bytes)

I've attached a cut-down testcase 5522.hs:

$ ulimit -v 1024000
$ ghc -fforce-recomp --make 5522.hs -O -fliberate-case -fspec-constr
[1 of 1] Compiling Foo              ( 5522.hs, 5522.o )
ghc-stage2: out of memory (requested 1048576 bytes)

Also a smaller version of the same pattern, z6.hs, and its core before and after SpecConstr. It looks like the amount of core grows quadratically, due to the way that as well as the original binding (e.g. go_Xdn) we also get a binding specialised for the Int# case (e.g. $sgo_sgm).

So for example, in partial.core.2.z6 there are 7 uses of lvl_scs (which is [4]), and 11 uses of lvl_scu (which is [5]).

Simon, is this the expected behaviour when asking for this specialisation, or is it something that we should fix?
