Hi Dan, if you're changing the semantics of the mod/ref queries here, please update this comment in AliasAnalysis.h:

  /// getModRefInfo - Return information about whether two call sites may refer
  /// to the same set of memory locations.  This function returns NoModRef if
  /// the two calls refer to disjoint memory locations, Ref if CS1 reads memory
  /// written by CS2, Mod if CS1 writes to memory read or written by CS2, or
  /// ModRef if CS1 might read or write memory accessed by CS2.
  virtual ModRefResult getModRefInfo(ImmutableCallSite CS1,
                                     ImmutableCallSite CS2);

also here:

Note that the call/call modref query should probably return its own (richer) enum than ModRefResult if you're interested in this going forward.
