Yes, I know.  That's what I modeled my solution after.  And it worked
for a bunch of codes I ran it on.  Until it didn't.

I think IPSCCP is broken because the on-the-fly pass manager stuff is

It's not about preserving analyses.  The analyses are not safely
available within the ModulePass itself.  They get deleted sometime
during the sequence of calls to getAnalysis.
