           Summary: SCEV should be a loop pass
           Product: libraries
           Version: trunk
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Loop Optimizer
        AssignedTo: unassignedbugs at nondot.org
        ReportedBy: resistor at mac.com

Because ScalarEvolution is a FunctionPass, it kills the LoopPassManager when it
is run.  This creates overhead because it require the re-instantiation of the
LPM, as well as forcing LCSSA to be recomputed repeatedly.  As of right now, we
compute LCSSA no less than five times in -std-compile-opts, mostly because of
this.  If SCEV were a loop pass, this could probably be reduced to one or two.
