Thank you Chris,
That is great news...
So his modifications are in llvm-2.2?
How has Christopher tested them? Are there attributes or intrinsics that
I can also use?

My understanding is that Christopher's patches have all landed in  
llvm, so the IR is capable of capturing and propagating the address  
space information.  However, we have no front-end that correctly  
generates this.  My understanding is that Christopher has patches in  
progress to add this to clang, but I'm not sure what the state of  
these is.  It would be great to get have help getting this into clang.
