Thanks Hal for the update. Sure, I will spend some time next week, to help with the code review.

Hi, Ehsan,

The llvm.noalias patches more-of-less cover the work. I have rebased versions much closer to trunk, and I can provide them. I intend to get back to these, however, the main roadblock has been getting someone to review the AA implementation. If you could do that, it would be great.

Thanks. This is probably one of the patches. So let me rephrase my questions:

1-      What is the status of work to support block-local restrict-qualified pointers.

2-      Does the set of patches with “llvm.noalias” label,  more or less cover this work?

Googling shows https://reviews.llvm.org/D9403, I think that's pretty close what you're looking at?

Hi Hal, others

IIRC, Hal has done some work to support block-local restrict-qualified pointers in LLVM, which was presented in CGO LLVM workshop.

I was wondering if all patches for this work are now committed? Is there a way to find the list of patches for this work?
