[LLVMdev] Local variable information in scope

I want to list some additional information on this.
The variable collection I am looking at is, "variables 'declared' in scope".
1. When I traverse the MachineInstructions in the LexicalScopes ranges, and check for variables, I get variables used in this scope.   
   The variables listed include variables which may not have been declared in the scope. (for example "int t", which is not declared in scope1, is listed.)
   I do this by checking if the instruction uses memoperands then I collect name of value.
So, for the example below
int func( int t)
  int x;
  //scope 1
     int a;
  return x;
what I am expecting is as below:
<scope name>: <list of variables declared in scope>
func scope: t, x
scope 1: a
2. I checked the "CodeGen/AsmPrinter/DwarfDebug.cpp" as reference, to find mapping of "MachineInstruction" to "llvm.dbg.declare", to extract variables declared in scope.
I am not sure whether there is any other way to get to variables declared in scope.
