This email is to serve as a reminder in regards to my previous email
querying about the present implementation of PRE in LLVM.
In case the present scope of PRE in LLVM is as I mentioned my previous
email, which is fairly restricted, than I would like to take it up as a
GSoC project to extend the scope of PRE in LLVM.
