[webkit-dev] Proposal: Using LLInt Asm in major architectures even if JIT is disabled

Recently, node-jsc is announced. When I read the documents of that
I found that they use LLInt ASM interpreter instead of CLoop in non-JIT
So I had one question in my mind: How fast the LLInt ASM interpreter when
comparing to CLoop?
I've set up two builds. One is CLoop build (-DENABLE_JIT=OFF) and another
is JIT build JSC with `JSC_useJIT=false`.
And I've ran kraken benchmarks with these two builds in x64 Linux machine.
The results are the followings.
Benchmark report for Kraken on sakura-trick.
Collected 10 samples per benchmark/VM, with 10 VM invocations per
benchmark. Emitted a call to gc() between sample
measurements. Used 1 benchmark iteration per VM invocation for warm-up.
Used the jsc-specific preciseTime()
function to get microsecond-level timing. Reporting benchmark execution
times with 95% confidence intervals in

Surprisingly, LLInt ASM interpreter is significantly faster than CLoop. I
expected it would be fast, but it would show around 10% performance win.
But the reality is that it is 2x faster. It is too much number to me to
consider enabling LLInt ASM interpreter for non-JIT build configuration.
As a bonus, LLInt ASM interpreter offers sampling profiler support even in
So my proposal is, how about enabling LLInt ASM interpreter in non-JIT
configuration environment in major architectures (x64 and ARM64)?
