// This defines the Use class.  The Use class represents the operand of an
// instruction or some other User instance which refers to a Value.  The Use
// class keeps the "use list" of the referenced value up to date.
// Pointer tagging is used to efficiently find the User corresponding
// to a Use without having to store a User pointer in every Use. A
// User is preceded in memory by all the Uses corresponding to its
// operands, and the low bits of one of the fields (Prev) of the Use
// class are used to encode offsets to be able to find that User given
// a pointer to any Use. For details, see:
//   http://www.llvm.org/docs/ProgrammersManual.html#UserLayout
