Hi Devang,

Just getting caught up on commits...

This isn't needed, please remove.

Please rename this MetadataContext or something like that.  This class  
*isn't* metadata, it is meta-metadata :).

Also, please don't use global typedefs like MDKindID.  If it is  
important enough to give the type a name (other than 'unsigned'),  
please use a wrapper struct so that it is "a type safe typedef".

It is unfortunate that implementation details of this class require  
pulling in #includes.  Please change these to be void*'s in the header  
and cast to the right type in the .cpp file.  An example of this is  
llvm/Target/TargetLoweringObjectFile.h with "UniquingMap".   
Alternatively, put all of this stuff into a "MetadataContextImpl"  
class, and make this class have a pointer to that.

The doxygen comment for this class should explain that this class is  
the thing that handles uniquing and assignment of IDs for custom  
metadata types, and should explain the restrictions on the names.

This should probably be named "AddMD" not "setMD".  "set" implies that  
there can only be one.

There should also be a "remove" method.

Is there any reason that Value needs to explicitly know about this?   
Why not use the existing CallbackVH interfaces?  If it would be much  
more inefficient or something, then I can see having a custom  
extension like this, but it would be nice to minimize this if possible.

This needs to enforce various constraints on the name.  For example,  
you can't have a space in the name etc.  Whatever requirements the .ll  
lexer have should be enforced here with an assert.

Please only do the lookup in MDHandlerNames.find when assertions are  
enabled.

It is simpler to write this as:

void Metadata::setMD(MDKindID MDKind, MDNode *Node, Instruction *Inst) {
   asert(Node == 0 && "Use removeMD to remove metadata");

   Inst->HasMetadata = true;
   MDMapTy &Entry = MetadataStore[I];
   if (Entry doesn't already have a "MDKind" entry)
     Entry.push_back(std::make_pair(MDKind, Node));
   else // Otherwise replace it.
     Entry[j] = Node;
}

We don't want to allow multiple entries for one MDKind.

We shouldn't allow duplicates, so this can be simplified to early  
return when MDKind is found.  You can eliminate the Node variable.

This is a serious logic error if HasMetadata is set on an instruction  
but it doesn't have an entry in MetadataStore.

This should erase(I) to avoid having to do another lookup.
