[llvm-dev] How a module pass can use analysis information?

Using the legacy pass manager, it is generally not possible to use
lower-level passes (The only exception is that module passes can use
function passes using `getOnTheFlyPass`).

You can still create your own pass manager hierachy. An example is here:

You need to create a whole stack of pass managers. Unfortunately I
don't know how to reuse the dependent analyses from the 'main' pass
manager stack (eg. TargetLibraryInfoWrapperPass)
