           Summary: LLVM should support symbol aliasing
           Product: libraries
           Version: trunk
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Core LLVM classes
        AssignedTo: unassignedbugs at nondot.org
        ReportedBy: asl at math.spbu.ru

LLVM should support symbol aliasing (the one, produced via
__attribute((alias))__ in gcc).

It seems, this is the main reason of PR1006, since compatibility is achieved via
symbol aliasing.

Aliasing, seems, can be done in some painless way for functions: just clone it
or output the "stub", which will call original one.

Anyway, this is just cheap workaround. Aliasing should be introduced for GV's also.
