[LLVMdev] Does getelementptr get optimized in compile-time?

Hello List,

I've got a question about getelementptr.

I've been told that getelementptr is evaluated in compile-time NOT in run-time.

So I tested it with clang web compiler below.

But with LTO nor Standard, neither one optimize getelementptr out.

Does getelementptr get evaluated in compile-time?
Or doesn't it get executed in run-time? (I believed so. Now I am wondering.)

Thank you in advance.
