            Bug ID: 21432
           Summary: First-class (metadata-based) IR for debug info
           Product: libraries
           Version: trunk
          Hardware: PC
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P
         Component: Core LLVM classes
          Assignee: unassignedbugs at nondot.org
          Reporter: dexonsmith at apple.com

    Classification: Unclassified

We should have first-class (for some metadata-based definition of the term) IR
for debug info.  High-level: instead of using generic `MDNode`s for debug info,
use classes with customized assembly, bitcode serialization, ownership, and
memory representation.

This is an umbrella bug for the work coming out of the RFC [1] a few weeks ago,
and there are more details in the LLVMdev post about `MDLocation` [2].
