I see... Could those passes simply be skipped for code blocks that are too large? Ideally in LLVM, since it's LLVM that imposes the restriction? I don't know much about LLVM yet, but my first thought would be that a code handling system should be able to deal with code of any size. It may decide not to optimize unusual cases, but it certainly shouldn't crash.
