[llvm-dev] [CUDA/NVPTX] design doc for memory space inference

I just want to chime in saying a huge thank you for documenting this kind
of stuff.

I also wanted to suggest in general turning these design documents into
'.rst' format and putting them into a design document tree in the LLVM
docs. Then, perhaps, referencing them from the code that implements these
techniques. This kind of careful and detailed documentation is a huge
benefit to the community and would help anyone starting to work on NVPTX or
other GPU optimization.

Thanks again,
