Do you have any information on why this is not a concern anymore? The comment was introduced in, unfortunately without a test case :(


Say we have a load from X, then a load from PartialAlias of X without offset, then another load from X. I think after your change, we will no longer forward from the first load, because we'll return a clobber for the PartialAlias in between, even though it cannot be used.

Can you please test this situation? Maybe we should not return a clobber if no offset is available?


update_test_checks please.

Yes, I saw this change and because of this comment added VisitedPhiBBs check when we return PartialAlias with offset in BasicAAResult::aliasGEP.


Yes, you're right there is no reason to return here PartialAlias if we don't know the offset.
