I am adding some instrumentation that requires me to track information
associated with llvm values. I need a good way to identify these
values by passing a unique id (can be unique within function scope) to
the instrumenting function. Let me be more clear with an example.
If I have
%3 = add i32 %1, %2
then I would like to insert a function call that will somehow log that
%3 requires %1 and %2 to be computed at this step. So my original plan
was to have my pass create a mapping of identifiers to numerical
constants, and then to pass the appropriate constants to the
instrumenting function at runtime.
Is there a better approach?
