[LLVMdev] Fwd: Updating PHI for Instruction Domination?

So essentially I'm adding a path inside of the loop. Is there a way to have
llvm automatically create new IR and update the PHIs simply by adding a
block like this and changing the DomTree?

Subject: Updating PHI for Instruction Domination?
To: llvmdev at cs.uiuc.edu
So I have a loop with two blocks, a header (which points to return and
latch) and a latch (which points to return and header). I have inserted a
few new blocks, called H and F.
Header now points to H and latch. Latch now points to F. H points to F. F
points to Header and return.
The PHI Nodes have been updated in Header accordingly, now coming from the
preheader and F (instead of latch).
My issue is this: The values in the PHI instruction in the Header for F are
actually defined in Latch and so if you follow the path: Header->H->F,
there becomes an issue with "Instruction does not dominate all uses" (since
the Header PHI is getting values defined in Latch coming from F but never
going to Latch) since they haven't been defined in that path.
My question is: Is there some call where I can rearrange the basic blocks
and call some functions/utils that solve this issue? Or do I have to
manually solve this myself?
