[llvm-dev] Print Register Liveness Information

Hi Anitha,

The liveness information is usually dropped after regalloc.
Therefore the short answer is no, this information is not available before producing assembly.

However, we have the live-ins and you can request the kill flag to be set. From both this information, you can recompute the liveness.
I’d suggest you use the LivePhysReg helper class and use its result to annotate your assembly (emitComment or something along those lines).
