I build a LLVM pass for my thesis to a .so file separately from the
tree, and run it using opt -load my_pass.so -my_pass file.bc
I don't claim that this is how it's supposed to be done, but it's
working for me, so it's at least possible. I'm still learning a lot
The 'llvm-spinn.so' rule builds my pass, and an example of how the pass
is then used (opt -load) is under 'plug-test'.
