           Summary: r256888 causes 30% performance regression of 519.lbm_r
                    at -Ofast generic tuning on Zen
           Product: gcc
           Version: 8.0
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: middle-end
          Assignee: unassigned at gcc dot
          Reporter: jamborm at gcc dot
  Target Milestone: ---

Revision 256888 caused 30% run-time regression of 519.lbm_r when
compiled with -Ofast (with generic march and tuning) and when run on a
Zen CPU.  I have observed it on both a Ryzen and an EPYC.
Surprisingly, the revision does not seem to have any effect on this
particular benchmark on my Intel Sandy Bridge desktop.

The changelog for the revision is below, I believe it is the first
listed change that is the culprit.
