/* Before including this file, you should define a macro: | |

DEF_PREDICTOR (ENUM, NAME, HITRATE) | |

This macro will be called once for each predictor. The ENUM will | |

be of type `enum predictor', and will enumerate all supported | |

predictors. The order of DEF_PREDICTOR calls is important, as | |

in the first match combining heuristics, the predictor appearing | |

first in this file will win. | |

NAME is used in the debugging output to determine predictor type. | |

HITRATE is the probability that edge predicted by predictor as taken | |

will be really taken (so it should be always above | |

REG_BR_PROB_BASE / 2). */ | |
