           Summary: CreateMalloc() and CreateFree() are not orthogonal
           Product: libraries
           Version: trunk
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: MacOS X
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P

Proposed patch

CreateMalloc() takes an optional malloc()-function argument when inserting the
code at the end of a basic block, but not when inserting the code before an

CreateFree() returns the code generated when inserting at the end of a basic
block but not when inserting before an instruction.

Better to make them orthogonal; works better for my project because I use a lot
of template function where the insertion point type (Instruction * or
BasicBlock *) is abstracted as a template argument.

Patch makes these changes. Impacts Instructions.h Instructions.cpp

Kind regards,
