Hello,


why exactly should I need to do this? Noone cares where the pointer points to (except perhaps for internals of the alias analysis). The only thing that is significant for optimizations is which memory reference aliases with which.

I think we have a failure to communicate about what an alias relation is.


What do you believe a aliases b means:
1. When a is a pointer and b is a variable
2. When a is a pointer and b is a pointer


I think if we start here, we can work out the terminology so we can see exactly what your complain is, because as written, your above sentence doesn't make much sense.
