It seems Ball-Larus path profiling was removed
in 2013 due to lack of maintenance. If you explain your use case or project
details or send an RFC, domain experts might tell if the modified work is
accepted or not in the LLVM source tree.

- What other options can I explore if adding it is not an option? (Any
