(1) this should have been cross-posted to comp.arch, not comp.arch.arithmetic.
(2) profiling feedback to compilers is standard technology nowadays -
although admittedly Intel's compiler team is the biggest advocate.
The real issue is not doing the feedback, but making easier and easier
the task of collecting the data (for which I espouse the use of
statistical feedback using interrupt sampling, measuring real users on
real machines in production, not just test).
I.e. it is more of an OS issue than a compiler issue.
A related research issue is using non-temporal performance metrics,
e.g. using measurements of where cache misses and branch
mispredictions are occurring.
