Bug ID: 84743
           Summary: default widths for parallel reassociation now hurt
                    rather than help
           Product: gcc
           Version: 8.0
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: target
          Assignee: acsawdey at gcc dot
          Reporter: acsawdey at gcc dot
  Target Milestone: ---
            Target: powerpc64le power8

The width settings in rs6000_reassociation_width() were chosen to help
performance for SPEC CPU in gcc 7.

Testing on power8 shows that in gcc 8 (258101) there are now major degradations
in CPU2017 int with the default reassociation widths as compared to using
--param tree-reassoc-width=1 to disable reassociation.
