Maybe I'm not remembering correctly then...

I'll look forward to it.  I had some (more) principled thing I was tacking toward that I've frankly lost track of; I'll see if I can remind myself in time for your post.

That way we will end up with a cloned module containing a non-distinct DISubprogram from the original module, itself referring to a DICompileUnit not appearing in llvm.dbg.cu <http://llvm.dbg.cu/> (i.e. the one from the original module), which fails the verifier.

Ah, this happens when cloning modules.  I hadn't considered that would use a single context.
