[LLVMdev] Moving instructions from functions

Dear all,

I want to move a block of instructions from its original function, form 
a new function, and place these instructions in the new function.
these blocks of instructions are not bound by Basic Blocks, i mean i can 
cut Basic Blocks and move only part of it to the new function.

I guess the solution can be either clone the whole function and start 
deleting instructions from the two functions (from source and from 
or i can cut basic blocks and start cloning them to the new function, 
then delete them from the original function.
both ways are not straight forward, i wanted to check if there is an 
easier straight forward way to do this.

thank you.
