You are better off run passes explicitly using opt.  Try this:
  llvm-gcc -c -o - -O1 my_proc.c -emit-llvm -mllvm --disable-llvm-optzns | opt list_of_passes
Passing -O1 to llvm-gcc means that gcc will perform constant folding and
some other small optimizations.  Passing -emit-llvm means that LLVM bitcode
is produced, suitable for piping to opt.  -mllvm --disable-llvm-optzns means
that the LLVM optimizers will not be run.
