Hi Babak,

Perhaps I don't understand you situation exactly, however llvm-gcc
uses the same libraries the llc uses. Loosely speaking, the "gcc" part
of llvm-gcc generates LLVM bytecode and sent to the LLVM libraries.

that llc does differently is it reads the bytecode directly. It then
sends it through the optimizers, etc.

Therefore, your changes to X86RegisterInfo is shared with all tools.
