[LLVMdev] LLVM virtual machine

Hi Konstantin,
good point.
but I my intention is to have something like the llva project.
Basically I would like to define a machine that looks as if it has processors running natively llvm code.
And when that runs enhance the llvm byte code with some specific instructions.
Besides this if I make my measurements on the running of llvm bytecode I can test several platforms simultaneously because I can translate the enhancements done on llvm code in optimizations specific for each platform without having to redo the research.

In this case you probably need to interpret machine code (or assembly language) instead of llvm bitcode.
