Dear all,

    I write a new LoopPass which wants to use passes including LoopInfoWrapperPass, ScalarEvolutionWrapperPass and LoopAccessLegacyAnalysis.
    Therefore, I implement the following code based on LLVM 9.0.0:

bool LoopInformationCollect::runOnLoop(Loop *L, LPPassManager &)

    auto &SE = getAnalysis<ScalarEvolutionWrapperPass>().getSE();
    auto &LI = getAnalysis<LoopInfoWrapperPass>().getLoopInfo();
    // auto *LAA = &getAnalysis<LoopAccessLegacyAnalysis>();
    if (Loop_id.find(L)==Loop_id.end()) // traverse instructions in the block assign instruction ID
        Loop_id[L] = ++Loop_Counter;
    // *Loop_out << "---------------Loop report----------------\n";
    // *Loop_out << LAA->getInfo(L).getReport();
    return false;

char LoopInformationCollect::ID = 0;

void LoopInformationCollect::getAnalysisUsage(AnalysisUsage &AU) const {

   I can make the project with GNU make successfully but get the error "Pass 'Unnamed pass: implement Pass::getPassName()' is not initialized." during runtime. When I remove the line "AU.addRequired<LoopAccessLegacyAnalysis>();" and make the project again, I run the program successfully.

   Detailed error report is shown below:

Pass 'Unnamed pass: implement Pass::getPassName()' is not initialized.
Verify if there is a pass dependency cycle.
Required Passes:
        Natural Loop Information
        Scalar Evolution Analysis

   Please note that I am not using "opt" in the terminal to run the passes but utilize PassManager in a main() function. It seems that the problem is caused by "LoopAccessLegacyAnalysis", since I have not faced this problem with other passes. I am wondering how I can fix this situation.
   Thanks a lot for your time and suggestions!
