Thanks for all the replies which are really helpful.

one more question regarding transformation:

4.  Given an instruction  %x1 = I1,  can I replace the rhs "I1"  with  "I2"
and get a new instruction %x1 = I2?   Alternatively, I can add a new
instruction %x2 = I2, and replace all uses of %x1 with %x2, and then delete
%x1 = I1, but it seems the former is simpler or faster if it's doable.

Any suggestion?
