We have entirely separate infrastructure for this.  An IR-level PGO 
instrumentation infrastructure would be of no immediate benefit to me.  
Even in the long term, we'd have some restrictions on the profile 
collection points which are easy to reason about in the frontend, but 
would be hard in the middle end.
