I went silent because I have a limited budget to spend on llvm-dev.

However, I don't think I've changed my stance here.  In this thread, I
said exactly the same thing as I've said before.

I don't see how "translating the example into C" is not addressed by
"IR is an abstraction and C/C++ wasn’t your problem".  The C example
that would trigger the "unintuitive" behavior is:

void f() {
  int x;

void g(int y) {
  if (y == y)

which has UB, and this falls under the purview of "IR is an
abstraction and C/C++ wasn’t your problem", which is a less charitable
way of saying what I've said above in this thread.

As I've said above, this is addressed in the paper.
