            Bug ID: 39669
           Summary: GlobalDCE.cpp / isEmptyFunction doesn't skip debug
           Product: libraries
           Version: trunk
          Hardware: PC
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P
         Component: DebugInfo
          Assignee: unassignedbugs at nondot.org
          Reporter: aprantl at apple.com

GlobalDCE.cpp / isEmptyFunction is defined as follows:

/// Returns true if F contains only a single "ret" instruction.
static bool isEmptyFunction(Function *F) {
  BasicBlock &Entry = F->getEntryBlock();
  if (Entry.size() != 1 || !isa<ReturnInst>(Entry.front()))
    return false;
  ReturnInst &RI = cast<ReturnInst>(Entry.front());
  return RI.getReturnValue() == nullptr;

used thusly:

  // Remove empty functions from the global ctors list.
  Changed |= optimizeGlobalCtorsList(M, isEmptyFunction);

If I'm reading this correctly, this means that the presence of debug info could
change the behavior of the optimization, which would be a bug.
