The -raise pass was mainly around to eliminate casts from int -> uint etc through some tricky 
transformations.  With the recent signless work, this pass should be mostly useless.  Eliminating it is good 
as it reduces compile time (one fewer pass), eliminates a bunch of ugly code (the raise pass is very nasty), 
and potentially eliminating the LLVMTransforms library (ExprTypeConvert.cpp, LevelRaise.cpp, and 

We should do performance analysis (e.g. spec2k and 2k6) to see whether this is completely dead, and if 
not, reimplement the useful pieces in other passes.
