As mentioned on D70376, LVI can currently cause performance issues when running under NewPM. The root problem is that, unlike the legacy pass manager, NewPM will not immediately discard the LVI analysis if the following pass does not need it. This is a problem, because LVI has a high memory requirement, and mass invalidation of LVI values is very inefficient. LVI should only be alive during passes that actively interact with it.
This patch addresses the issue by explicitly abandoning LVI after CVP, which gets us back to the LegacyPM behavior.
I don't think something like this is done anywhere else, so I'm wondering whether this kind of explicit abandonment of analysis passes under NewPM is acceptable.
