[LLVMdev] BlockAddress is a "User"

Can you elaborate?  I don't see anything in that code to check for blocks that have their addresses taken.  It seems like something like the attached patch may be in order, but I don't have a testcase to expose the issue.  Maybe your changes could help identify a testcase?  Or did you find something that prevents this from being an issue?

I'm finding that in CodeGen, during "EliminateMostlyEmptyBlocks", BlockAddresses are not updated to point to the newly merged block if the original block was eliminated.  This is causing me problems.  Mind you, I'm experimenting with this using the Sparc backend, which could be the source of blame, but this seems unlikely.  Thoughts?
