This makes perfect sense to me - if you want the mid-level optimizer to be aware of this, then it makes sense for it to be part of DataLayout.

Question though: given that approach, wouldn’t that make this whole thing in-tree-testable?

What would not be testable given the appropriate data layout extensions?
