  /// last LLVM modifying pass to clean up blocks that are not reachable from
  /// the entry block.

  /// allocator.  While the BigBlock allocator is a little slower, and uses
  /// somewhat more memory than the local register allocator, it tends to
  /// yield the best allocations (of any of the allocators) for blocks that
  /// have hundreds or thousands of instructions in sequence.

  /// by seeing if the labels map to the same reduced label.
