Correction: it's not invalid, but if the value that %a points to is
indeed never used after the store (as the lifetime.end intrinsic would
indicate), then the store was dead from the beginning. Deleting the
lifetime.start(%a) wouldn't have any ill effect in that case.
I'm not sure if that's what the author intended though.
