[LLVMdev] Instruction as Value in PHI

Ah, I see. This is my instruction:
%lsr.iv125.us.ph = phi i32 [ %lsr.iv.next126.us, %limit.exit281.i.us ], [
sub (i32 0, i32 ptrtoint ([8 x [2 x i32]]* @Maxlogmap_Decode_next_state to
i32)), %for.cond195.preheader.i.us ]
So there is a ptrtoint inside a sub inside a phi.
I'm just going to write a pass that promotes/demotes the embedded instr,
shouldn't take long.
