LOL :-) Yes, maybe that's it. Included is a patch w comments that
explains better.


1. Should AsmPrinter::EmitStartOfAsmFile() be always called as is now?
2. If not, where should the arch-specific code go?
3. Where should the MCStreamer specific stuff for #2 go?

Again, these are all high level design intent questions. Perhaps Mr
Lattner can opine?
