> Given an EBB specialized for a specific family member, is it possible to statically determine the worst case number of cycles taken by that EBB? Since everything except loads has fixed latency and we can just assume a DRAM access to get worst case load time.

Yes 🙂

> Possibly related question: can phasing cross EBBs? On x86 the performance of a basic block can vary wildly based on what basic block was executed just before, and if phasing occurs across EBBs it seems like you could get similar effects on the Mill.

Well it doesn’t impact the timing of the called / branched EBB. Its all fixed latency and deterministic.
