Subject[PATCH 00/13] jump label v8
Hi,

updates for -v8:

*converted jump labels to use a numeric key instead of a string to identify
sets of related jump labels. this saves space, since we no longer store all
the strings. It also simplifies the jump label call as:

-# define JUMP_LABEL(tag, label, cond)
+# define JUMP_LABEL(key, label)

since we can use &cond for as the key value

*added 'dynamic debug' code as another consumer of the jump label code (in
addition to tracepoints). It would be interesting to identify further codepaths
that would benefit from this type of optimization

*added a depends on !CC_OPTIMIZE_FOR_SIZE. When CC_OPTIMIZE_FOR_SIZE is set,
gcc does not always out of line the not taken label path in the same way that
the "if unlikely()" paths are made out of line. Thus, with CC_OPTIMIZE_FOR_SIZE
set, this optimization is not always optimal. This may be solved in subsequent gcc
versions, that allow us to move labels out of line, while still optimizing for
size. In the case of !CC_OPTIMIZE_FOR_SIZE this optimization is seen on high
level benchmarks such as tbench where I can get ~1-2% higher throughput. In
addition we are within .5% of the performance of no tracepoints compiled in
at all.

thanks,

-Jason
