gcc.texi includes documentation of the passes of the compiler and of
the source files that implement them. This documentation is very out
2.97 20001201 (experimental)
System: Linux decomino 2.2.17 #1 Mon Sep 4 20:22:16 UTC 2000 i686 unknown
configured with: ../gcc-cvs/configure --prefix=/opt/gcc/snapshot --disable-shared --enable-threads=posix --with-system-zlib
Read the GCC manual. Observe the failure to cover whole-function
trees, references to now non-existent source files such as sched.c,
out of date information on -d options, etc..
Update this part of the manual with careful reference to toplev.c,
including all passes in the correct order, documenting the source
files used and ensuring that each relevant source file is mentioned
and that no source files that are no longer in GCC are mentioned.
Once it is up to date, insist that patches adding optimization passes
or otherwise changing this area must include the documentation updates

Is there any progress on this one?

There was some work done - but passes.texi is still far from up to date
Gaaah... let's try to get this one for 3.4...
Not bloody likely for 3.4. Tree-ssa is rewriting and replacing even *more*
passes; so let's try to get it there.
Not really related to tree-ssa, move to 3.5
Besides, the tree-ssa passes _are_ properly documented. At best, we make a
few other flags redundant :-)
