[LLVMdev] Losing Attribute information during inlining

Since Attributes are related to arguments and return values, inlining of a function causes in some cases to lose information such as NoAlias.
Consequently, this hurts in some cases the precision of alias analysis.

Is there a special reason why this information is not maintained?
Is there a motivation to extend LLVM to maintain this information?
