Description

Introduce noundef attribute at call sites for stricter poison analysis

This change adds a new IR noundef attribute, which denotes when a function call argument or return val may never contain uninitialized bits.

In MemorySanitizer, this attribute enables optimizations which decrease instrumented code size by up to 17% (measured with an instrumented build of clang) . I'll introduce the change allowing msan to take advantage of this information in a separate patch.
