select instruction and jump threading

LLVM 7.0.0 produces the following x86_64 code:

86c8: 8a 88 02 01 00 00 mov 0x102(%rax),%cl
86ce: 8a 90 03 01 00 00 mov 0x103(%rax),%dl
86d4: 0a 90 01 01 00 00 or 0x101(%rax),%dl
86da: 02 88 00 01 00 00 add 0x100(%rax),%cl
86e0: 02 88 04 01 00 00 add 0x104(%rax),%cl
86e6: 80 e1 0f and $0xf,%cl
86e9: 0a 90 05 01 00 00 or 0x105(%rax),%dl
86ef: 40 b6 0f mov $0xf,%sil
86f2: b2 0f mov $0xf,%dl
86f4: 75 02 jne 86f8 <LMtop.W0+0x38>
86f6: 89 ca mov %ecx,%edx
86f8: 75 02 jne 86fc <LMtop.W0+0x3c>
86fa: 31 f6 xor %esi,%esi
86fc: 88 90 06 01 00 00 mov %dl,0x106(%rax)
8702: 40 88 b0 07 01 00 00 mov %sil,0x107(%rax)

Note how the branch at 0x86f4 targets another branch on the same condition. Practically, the branch at 0x86f8 is redundant as it can never be taken. It ought to be removed, and the branch at 0x86f4 ought to target 0x86fc.

  1. Is this a known issue? I couldn’t find anything obvious in Bugzilla.
  2. Would it be better for me to use branches and phi whenever I knowingly want to do more than one select with the exact same condition?
