dependence analysis should use TBAA already, in which cases do you need this?
It seems to fall foul of the easy mistake of not honoring GCCs memory model
as well ... see dr_may_alias_p.

+  /* Further check if any data dependence prevents us from executing the
+     partition parallelly.  */
+  EXECUTE_IF_SET_IN_BITMAP (partition->reads, 0, i, bi)
+    {
+      dr1 = (*datarefs_vec)[i];
+      EXECUTE_IF_SET_IN_BITMAP (partition->writes, 0, j, bj)
+       {

what about write-write dependences?

+  EXECUTE_IF_SET_IN_BITMAP (partition->reads, 0, i, bi)
+    {
+      dr1 = (*datarefs_vec)[i];
+      EXECUTE_IF_SET_IN_BITMAP (partition->writes, i + 1, j, bj)
+       {
+         dr2 = (*datarefs_vec)[j];
+         /* Partition can only be executed sequentially if there is any
+            data dependence cycle.  */

exact copy of the loop nest follows?!  Maybe you meant to iterate
over writes in the first loop.
