In this paper, we look at the problem of scheduling expression trees with reusable registers on delayed load architectures. Reusable registers come into the picture when the compiler has a data-flow analyzer which is able to estimate the extent of use of the registers. Earlier work considered the same problem without allowing for register variables. Subsequently, Venugopal considered non-reusable registers in the tree. We further extend these efforts to consider a much more general form of the tree. We describe an approximate algorithm for the problem. We formally prove that the code schedule produced by this algorithm will, in the worst case, generate one interlock and use just one more register than that used by the optimal schedule. Spilling is minimized. The approximate algorithm is simple and has linear complexity.
