Sorry do you mean there too much ambiguity in software profiling? As in
it’s too variable such that deriving instructions from spectate algorithm
profiling has a a high probability of creating suboptimal instructions?
Otherwise I’m sorry I don’t think I understand, can you explain further?

What is the method we, or you are using to identify instructions that are
potentially good candidates for hardware acceleration that will then need
to be implemented, simulated and compared against other implementations to
determine the area/power/performance improvement per Jeff Bush’s Nyuzi
Raster method?
