I have codified two additional tests for EQNTOTT-specific optimizers.
The first new test uses a wider range of input values than are used in the
EQNTOTT benchmark, and will fail if the compiler generates code that
assumes a limited range of input values.
The second new test varies the alignments of the short-int input arrays,
and will fail if 1) the architecture requires 32-bit and 64-bit loads to
be 32-bit and 64-bit aligned, 2) the compiler uses 32-bit or 64-bit loads
to load multiple shorts, and 3) the compiler does not emit code to ensure
32-bit or 64-bit alignment.
A more complete description of these tests for EQNTOTT-specific optimizations
is included at http://www.nullstone.com/eqntott/eqntott.htm. The sources
for the tests are at ftp://ftp.nullstone.com/pub/eqntott-tests.tar.Z.
