The alternative is to save the builder IP, set it to the alloca IP, do alloca stuff, reset the builder IP, when you use the AllocaIRBuilder below. Again, no functional difference, just less setting/resetting of IPs.
I understand where you are coming from, and I understand that functionally there is mostly no change - for now. But I prefer we do a small struct with some RAII, over adding an entire builder. I think it's a bit overkill and will be a source to lots of trouble.

Clang maintains an instruction `AllocaInsertPt`, not a specific builder. Speaking of which, This is completely from memory (i.e. check to make sure); I think we already save the previous `AllocaInsertionPt` in clang as part of the `bodyGenCB`. In which case, this is not needed; a nested `parallel` will always be generated by clang as part of the `bodyGenCB`, which in turn is going to save the Alloca insertion point for us. 
To enable the creation of the allocas for `TID` and `ZeroAddr` in the outer function, Why not pass current `AllocaInsertionPt` as an arg. to `createParallel`

Oh right. Thanks for explaining that. :)
Nit: if possible, add a simple assert to check that inputs/outputs didn't change

Oh, Thanks. I missed that. :)
In this case; I think both the Blockset, and BlockVector have the same contents, correct? can't we use the vector instead on line 684, and keep the set local?
