//===- Reg2Mem.cpp - Convert registers to allocas -------------------------===//
//                     The LLVM Compiler Infrastructure
// This file is distributed under the University of Illinois Open Source
// License. See LICENSE.TXT for details.
// This file demotes all registers to memory references.  It is intended to be
// the inverse of PromoteMemoryToRegister.  By converting to loads, the only
// values live across basic blocks are allocas and loads before phi nodes.
// It is intended that this should make CFG hacking much easier.
// To make later hacking easier, the entry block is split into two, such that
// all introduced allocas and nothing else are in the entry block.
