> Part of my motivation of naming it "IR" is that it makes it really clear what should be in there.  Also, the only stuff that would move to include/llvm/IR are the things related to IR: the other stuff should be left where they are for now, but eventually move.  For example: passmanager to transforms(?), Intrinsics to targets, Intrinsics to targets, AutoUpgrade to transforms, and AddressingMode.h somewhere not there :)

Thanks to clarify. It makes sense.

That said, shall we not rename s/VMCore/IR/, but split individual
stuff in VMCore into each, step-by-step?
