// This pass hoists instructions to enable speculative execution on
// targets where branches are expensive. This is aimed at GPUs. It
// currently works on simple if-then and if-then-else
// patterns.
//
// Removing branches is not the only motivation for this
// pass. E.g. consider this code and assume that there is no
// addressing mode for multiplying by sizeof(*a):
//
//   if (b > 0)
//     c = a[i + 1]
//   if (d > 0)
//     e = a[i + 2]
//
// turns into
//
//   p = &a[i + 1];
//   if (b > 0)
//     c = *p;
//   q = &a[i + 2];
//   if (d > 0)
//     e = *q;
//
// which could later be optimized to
//
//   r = &a[i];
//   if (b > 0)
//     c = r[1];
//   if (d > 0)
//     e = r[2];
//
// Later passes sink back much of the speculated code that did not enable
// further optimization.
