[LLVMdev] MAJOR API CHANGE: LLVMContext

Notice of a major upcoming API change: The static methods for
constructing types and constants will be going away in the future.
Instead, the global uniquing tables that lurk behind these APIs will
be privatized within LLVMContext instances.
What this means for you: Your client application will need to create
an LLVMContext in main(), and pass it into a few APIs (the constructor
for Module, for instance). You can, in theory, have more than one
LLVMContext as long as you never want Modules created under separate
contexts to interact.
In the near term, I will be committing patches to do this conversion
for the existing LLVM tools, including Clang and LLVM-GCC, which
should provide examples for those following along at home.
