No, I missed your point. I thought you could look at the allocations
within a function then use that method on all calls involving that
alloca as an argument, but that doesn't do what I wanted.

I have some hope for getModRefBehavior which returns a container of
PointerAccessInfo, but I haven't yet decided if that actually does what
I mean either.

Worst case, the optz'n just falls back to degraded behaviour without DSA.
