I always thought it would be interesting to look at code transforms
with regard to their effect on the underlying resources of an out of
order instruction execution machine. Why not look at this as an
opportunity to combine compiler optimization with your area of
interest (computer architecture.) I realize that out of order
execution might not be a cool research topic anymore, but you asked...
