This project aims at increasing floating point performance by the following improvements:
- In Simplifier and Value Propagation, less work is done on Floating Point nodes as compared to integral nodes, which is to be resolved.
- Implement support for Fused Multiply-Add (FMA) instruction set in OMR x86 backend.
- Add IL opcodes for FMA variants.
- x87 is to be removed and replaced by SSE where required.
