The first problem is regarding `memtmp' variables (apparently, the original variable name is no longer present in the bitcode). The other two problems concern OpenMP. In one case, the instruction is not named and hence establishing a connection to the debug metadata does not seem possible. In the other case, I am noticing some extra fields present in the `omp_data_s' structure (these fields are not present in the source code) and hence the `alloca' does not match the metadata definition.

You may try clang.  It generates the debugging information you want.
