I seem to recall replying to this, but my email client says I didn't, so
I'm responding again.
The rDSA code is some experimental code that we abandoned. We removed
the -ds-aa pass in mainline poolalloc because we weren't maintaining it
and, to the best of our knowledge, no one was using it.
Someone sent a patch (I think to the mailing list, but potentially just
to me) that resurrected the -ds-aa pass for DSA with LLVM 2.9 (note that
we don't support LLVM 2.9; I think this person just got it to work on
his own since LLVM 2.9 and LLVM 3.0 were pretty similar at the time). I
didn't integrate it as I didn't have time to review it, and it contains
other stuff besides the -ds-aa change.
Just out of curiosity, are people interested in using DSA via the
