The nested instructions come from anything LLVM can identify as a
constant (specifically, any value that's a subclass of Constant).
I'm not aware of a pass to turn them back into non-constant Values,
though one could clearly be written. It would probably count more as a
pessimisation than an optimisation though. The Constants have a
reasonable chance at resulting in no instructions at all, which I
doubt the expanded form would.
What are you trying to do where you think it would be an advantage?
Perhaps there's a better way without compromising optimisations.
