In general I would like to replace the tree_rest_of_compilation by just
set of nested passes so the passmanager is completely driven by
cgraphunit and all the other actions are driven by the PM.

I was look into using the pass manager for an IPA pass when I noticed that we do the following order for passes: function analysis execute variable analysis

Which seems wrong as we should do the following order instead:
function analysis
variable analysis

As we generate some information by the two analysis functions which
should be used by the execute function which do some more analysis
of the data which is used by the modify functions.

I think the order right now causes the static-var pass to generate
not correct information as of right now.
