[LLVMdev] How to prevent duplication of function calls?

Is it possible to prevent duplication of call sites for specific functions (while still maintaining -O3 optimization level)? For example, the following C code:

if (cond1) a=2;

is turned by clang with -O2 into something like this:

if (cond1)

We're doing C to HDL compilation with LLVM. Having multiple locations that call llvm.memory.barrier(...) would cause complications to generated hardware.

So far, I can think of only two solutions. One is to add support for something like "noclone" attribute and update all optimizations to obey it. The other is to re-merge the calls as a final pass. Any better ideas?

Thank you,
