// This file defines the ScopedNoAlias alias-analysis pass, which implements
// metadata-based scoped no-alias support.
// Alias-analysis scopes are defined by an id (which can be a string or some
// other metadata node), a domain node, and an optional descriptive string.
// A domain is defined by an id (which can be a string or some other metadata
// node), and an optional descriptive string.
// !dom0 =   metadata !{ metadata !"domain of foo()" }
// !scope1 = metadata !{ metadata !scope1, metadata !dom0, metadata !"scope 1" }
// !scope2 = metadata !{ metadata !scope2, metadata !dom0, metadata !"scope 2" }
// Loads and stores can be tagged with an alias-analysis scope, and also, with
// a noalias tag for a specific scope:
// ... = load %ptr1, !alias.scope !{ !scope1 }
// ... = load %ptr2, !alias.scope !{ !scope1, !scope2 }, !noalias !{ !scope1 }
// When evaluating an aliasing query, if one of the instructions is associated
// has a set of noalias scopes in some domain that is a superset of the alias
// scopes in that domain of some other instruction, then the two memory
// accesses are assumed not to alias.
