I don't think we want to expose this flag in the driver -- it should really be a CC1-only thing for debugging.

As such, I think I'd just make it an independent flag:


Or some such. This also seems easier than having to define a new kind.

The two small disadvantages of your suggestion is that

  1. It's more verbose to type: clang -fexperimental-new-pass-manager -fexperimental-new-pass-manager-debug-logging
  2. it's the 3 states vs 4 states pattern: clang -fno-experimental-new-pass-manager -fexperimental-new-pass-manager-debug-logging doesn't make sense to me, and it's good to avoid that.

What do you think about these trade offs?

As I said in the discussion about similar flags for GVN, I'm generally fine with. We should have a big fat warning in the Release Notes that all -fexperimental-* flags are exactly that -- temporary and not intended for long term consumption. I.e. "we can and will remove them whenever it creates the most havoc".

Use a cc1 flag -fdebug-pass-manager instead.

As discussed offline, (2) isn't a practical issue, and (1) makes sense since -fexperimental-new-pass-manager will ultimately go away, but the debug flag remains.

This looks great to me with a CC1-layer flag. But check that others are happy as well, thanks!

LGTM. Just one minor nit on the option help string below. Thanks
