Hi everyone,

I noticed that MallocInst and FreeInst have been removed from the LLVM IR as 
well as the language reference[1]. May I propose that at least some 
placeholder is left in that document telling the reader that these 
instructions have been removed. This should be kept in at least until there is 
one official release that does not support these instructions anymore.
The same goes for the addition of the indirect branch instruction. A note in 
the language reference would be nice telling the reader when this instruction 
has been added to the language.
