LGTM, thanks!


nit: noalias should not be needed here and the other tests, as %stack.ptr is to an alloca and LLVM should be able to determine noalias without the extra help.

Thinking about this again, I am not sure if this is a good idea to do for the destination argument, because it gives the impression that exactly LenCI bytes are written, when this is not the case.

I think for reads the larger size is the conservative option and fine, but for writing it could mis-lead clients into thinking the call writes more bytes than it actually does, leading to potentially invalid optimizations.

Makes sense, I will prepare fix to skip doing this for dst.
