Thanks. So I'm unclear exactly which llvm opt will exhibit copy prop.
It seems to me that codegenprepare is doing a useful thing (for me, since
I'm just using the llvm IR and not going to backend, providing it's
"exposing" and not simply "adding for layout for CodeGen opts" (or
something similar to this)?
