Summary

Currently this is counterproductive and doesn't have the desired
effect. The way the promotion is handled is by reinterpreting the
pointers in memory, which ultimately results in GVN using
ptrtoint/inttoptr. This defeats InferAddressSpaces and other
optimizations, which was the point of trying to do this replacement.
