More generally, the df numbers are an internal implementation detail  
of domtree.  If predsimplify needs df numbers, it should just compute  
them itself and store them in a map.  This gives it complete control  
over them and allows you to do whatever you want with them.  Doing a  
DFS is both fast and easy (just use llvm/ADT/DepthFirstIterator.h).
