Emitting lifetime intrinsic is optional. In this case, since the life time of the temp var is just before and after the function call, emitting lifetime intrinsics can help optimizers.

It can be done by code like this:

   if (auto *Size = EmitLifetimeStart(
           Alloca.getPointer())) {
     pushFullExprCleanup<CallLifetimeEnd>(NormalEHLifetimeMarker, Alloca,

Then the lifetime.start should be emitted before the function call and lifetime.end should be emitted just after the function call.
