The ENUM will be of type `enum predictor', and will enumerate all supported predictors. The order of DEF_PREDICTOR calls is important, as in the first match combining heuristics, the predictor appearing first in this file will win. NAME is used in the debugging output to determine predictor type. HITRATE is the probability that edge predicted by predictor as taken will be really taken (so it should be always above REG_BR_PROB_BASE / 2). */ /* A value used as final outcome of all heuristics. */ DEF_PREDICTOR (PRED_COMBINED, "combined", PROB_ALWAYS, 0) /* An outcome estimated by Dempster-Shaffer theory. */ DEF_PREDICTOR (PRED_DS_THEORY, "DS theory", PROB_ALWAYS, 0) /* An combined heuristics using probability determined by first matching heuristics from this list. */ DEF_PREDICTOR (PRED_FIRST_MATCH, "first match", PROB_ALWAYS, 0) /* Heuristic applying when no heuristic below applies. */ DEF_PREDICTOR (PRED_NO_PREDICTION, "no prediction", PROB_ALWAYS, 0) /* Mark unconditional jump as taken. */ DEF_PREDICTOR (PRED_UNCONDITIONAL, "unconditional jump", PROB_ALWAYS, PRED_FLAG_FIRST_MATCH) /* Use number of loop iterations determined by loop unroller to set probability.
