[llvm-dev] Help wanted: Overloading an Intinsic

The error shows that the clang source code uses this intrinsic as well, but in the old form. You need to modify the clang source code (where this intrinsic is used) to consider the overloaded operands.
The assert would show the trace where clang uses this intrinsic.
Hope this helps,

I would like my intrinsic function, CNOT(x,y), to accept either an abit or a qbit for each argument, so I overload with iAny and llvm_anyint_ty, as seemed to be the method for other intrinsics:

My question is simply, are there any additional steps to overloading an intrinsic? I stand to believe there is more to be done than what I did in the one line above, but I cannot find where to do this.
