For this, just use:


"LoopSimplifyID" is a marker that is used to identify the pass, which is 
exported from the .cpp file.

It would be nice, however, if you pass doesn't modify the CFG (even if it 
uses loop simplify) just say so.  If it does, then you will have to 
explicitly update all of the data structures you want to preserve...
