Let PassBuilder Expose PassInstrumentationCallbacks

Authored by aqjune on Dec 5 2019, 12:18 PM.



This is an effort to allowing external libraries register their own pass instrumentation during their llvmGetPassPluginInfo() calls.

By exposing this through the added getPIC(), now a pass writer can do something like this:

extern "C" ::llvm::PassPluginLibraryInfo LLVM_ATTRIBUTE_WEAK
llvmGetPassPluginInfo() {
  return {
    [](llvm::PassBuilder &PB) {

Overall I'm fine with this.
Bikeshedding-wise, getPIC seems to be overly cryptic to me.
Do you believe full name getPassInstrumentationCallbacks is too much?

Also, please, add at least one test.
I would start with llvm/unittests/IR/PassBuilderCallbacksTest.cpp

Sorry for my delay.
I updated the function name & added a unit test.

nit: "to add pass instrumentation" -> "to register pass instrumentation callbacks."
