And you want this for only SOME bits of code, and that's why you need to
have the IR report what sections are "sensitive"?
It would be fairly easy if the code you want to check is a normal
functions, just store the start address of the function, and the length
should be doable too at machine code level, but not IR level. If you want
to check only the middle of the function, it's a bit harder.
How are you dealing with the fact that code gets relocated during loading?
[I'm always curious as to how these type of designs cope with someone
modifying the checksumming code itself, but that's another problem - or is
this one of these things where the checksum is stored in special
