[LLVMdev] Loop Metadata?

Is there currently a good way of attaching metadata to loops?
The use case that I have in mind is implementing a feature whereby the
user can put
above a loop and that serves has an instruction to the optimizer to
unroll the loop N times.
I understand that LLVM does not have a first-class loop construct, but
would attaching the metadata to the instructions that branch to the loop
header be a good idea?
I also wonder whether whatever mechanism would work for this purpose
would also work for implementing OpenMP support.
