[LLVMdev] proposed change to class BasicTTI

Just realized that BasicTransformInfoClass is an immutable pass.

Not sure how to reconcile this with fact that there will be different 
answers needed depending on the subtarget.

Seems like BasicTansformInfoClass should become a function pass that 
does not modify  anything.
