Thx all for the quick answers...

Just as I said to Hal, nothing else than:
$ clang -emit-llvm -S -o main.ll main.c
$ ../build/Release/bin/opt -load ../build/Release/lib/LLVMobfuscationTest.so -flattening -S main.ll -o main.opt.ll

Thx, I'll try that... I guess I missed the Dominator step last time

I'm running opt with my lib on a ir code emmitted by clang: $ clang -emit-llvm -S -o main.ll main.c
and opt: $ ../build/Release/bin/opt -load ../build/Release/lib/LLVMobfuscationTest.so -flattening -S main.ll -o main.opt.ll
No others optimization applied...
