[LLVMdev] Cloning BasicBlock

Hello Andrew ,
Yes , I have missed the phi node since my paths merge together. I'll try this out.
I am implementing a timer based profiling scheme and hope your code will be useful
for me. Please send me a copy of your code.

I have a pass I haven't commited that does just this. Well, it does so
to implement Arnold and Ryder style profiling. I can send you a copy of
that if you want (I hope to commit it soon once it is cleaned up some).
Your best bet is to run reg2mem, which removes most live values by
placing them in memory. the only live values that remain after that
pass are the allocas for the old registers and values from loads in the
predecessors of phi nodes to those phi nodes. This makes it much easier
to maintain SSA form (as there is only one type of simple live value you
have to worry about). It is also possible to remove the phi nodes
completely with a bit more transform, but that wasn't desirable in my
case, so I didn't, but you could easily extend the pass to do so.
(just for reference, my code clones all BB in a function and the CFG,
then takes backedges and interconnects the backedges of the original and
cloned versions, adding conditional branches at those join points.)
