[LLVMdev] Question about reusing executable object memory get from MCJIT->getPointerToFunction

Hi Cheng,

If your underlying ExecutionEngine is MCJIT then I *think* you will be able
to get away with calling that memory as long as your RTDyldMemoryManager
instance is still alive. Like a lot of JIT semantics though, this isn't
codified anywhere. I would be be wary of relying on it. My take is that
once the ExecutionEngine is gone, the JIT'd code should no longer be called.
