What version of Go are you using (go version)?

$ go version
go version go1.14.2 linux/amd64

Does this issue reproduce with the latest release?


What operating system and processor architecture are you using (go env)?

go env Output
$ go env

What did you do?


package main

func test(foo []byte, i int) {
	_ = foo[63]
	r := i & 63
	_ = foo[r]

func main() {}

go build -gcflags="-d=ssa/check_bce/debug=1"

What did you expect to see?

Just the first bounds check for the initial length of the slice

./test.go:4:9: Found IsInBounds

Because prove should be able to deduce that the masked value is bounded by 63 and so is already in bounds.

r := i&m && m >= 0 --> 0 <= r <= m

What did you see instead?

Both accesses require a bounds check.

./test.go:4:9: Found IsInBounds
./test.go:6:9: Found IsInBounds

This is related to #38476

I think this is because prove doesn't make inferences inolving bitwise operations. I have some CLs I've neglected, to which I could hope to someday add inference over bitwise operations (my employer eliminated our 20% time).
