The error above suggests that "isa<AllocationInst>(whatever)" was invoked,
and in current CVS, the only use of AllocationInst in
LoadValueNumbering.cpp is on line 305:

   if (isa<AllocationInst>(I))

I think changing this to 

   if (isa<AllocationInst>(*I))

should work, and be more robust anyway then relying on implicit
interator->value conversion anyway. If you'd want to debug this, try
compiling the following program:

    #include "llvm/Analysis/LoadValueNumbering.h"
    #include "llvm/Support/Casting.h"
    #include "llvm/Support/BasicBlock.h"
    using namespace llvm;
    template<class T>
    void test(const T& val)
    void foo()
        BasicBlock::iterator I;

With the following command:

   CC -I <path-to-llvm-includes-directory> -D__STDC_LIMIT_MACROS=1

You should get one compile error on attempt to call 'no_such_method' on
results of 'getSimplifiedValue', and the error message should name the type
of the object you call method on. With gcc/Linux, that type is
'llvm::Instruction*'. If you see anything else, this means 'simplify_type'
is broken, and most probable reason is that the compiler has broken partial
template specialisation. 

Some workarounds may be possible, but adding '*' everywhere dynamic casting
is used might be easier solution.
