             Bug #: 11364
           Summary: Peephole pass should remove dead code
           Product: libraries
           Version: trunk
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P
         Component: Common Code Generator Code
        AssignedTo: unassignedbugs at nondot.org
        ReportedBy: stoklund at 2pi.dk
                CC: llvmbugs at cs.uiuc.edu
    Classification: Unclassified

The codegen PeepholeOptimizer can eliminate bitcasts like these:

        %vreg1<def> = VMOVSR %vreg0, pred:14, pred:%noreg; SPR:%vreg1
        %vreg3<def> = VMOVRS %vreg1, pred:14, pred:%noreg; GPR:%vreg3

But it forgets to clean up dead code left behind.

See test/CodeGen/ARM/peephole-bitcast.ll which depends on the linear scan
register allocator to remove a dead vmov.
