  • Expose the intrinsic name lookup code so it can be used by intrinsics not starting with llvm..

Can you explain why this is necessary?

"llvm." is the only reserved prefix for global identifiers; removing that assumption opens the door to problems we could easily avoid (for instance, what happens when I use IR that has functions named '' ? Are those doomed to be forbidden from the 'X' backend?)

I'm having a hard time justifying support for this in LLVM. You can already make target-specific intrinsics starting with "llvm.myisa.", so there isn't much gained by this.

Following some review with Ahmed (ab), we think it will not make sense for upstream.
