Hi Davide,

Currently it is load-elim in patch 2 and 3.  There are probably other interesting things we can do with load-pre but I don't have those implemented.  Also not directly GVN-specific, but it would also be nice to somehow expose the aliasing information via opt-viewer.  (Let me know if you're interested working on any of this.)

Yeah the first use is in this patch and this allows writing the test case for the feature.

Thanks for bringing this up, I haven't so far thought about the relationship of debug output and opt remarks.  I think that we shouldn't have debug output if we already have opt remarks.  It makes the code less readable and with "opt -pass-remarks*=" you can get them printed.

Let me remove this.

Perhaps in the long run we can imply -pass-remarks*=<pass> if "-debug-only=<pass>" is used.
