[llvm-dev] Malloc signature errors

I am trying to insert malloc calls in my function pass, yet it keeps
complaining about the parameter type:
Call parameter type does not match function signature!
i8* %malloccall = tail call i8* @malloc(i64 4096)
Comparing this to a call generated by simply having a malloc in the C code,
I cannot spot significant differences. The following (generated by clang)
works just fine:
%2 = call noalias i8* @malloc(i64 4096) #2
Why does one work but the other doesn't? Below is the code I use to
generate the instruction:
Type *int8Type = Type::getInt8Ty(this->currentFunction->getContext());
Type *int64Type = Type::getInt64Ty(this->currentFunction->getContext());
auto allocSize = ConstantInt::get(int64Type, 4096);
Instruction* mallocInstr =
nullptr, nullptr, "");
I tried changing up the types already but didn't find a combination that
works yet. Any hints would be appreciated.
