program specialization vs LTO in LLVM

Hi,

I am considering using LTO in LLVM for optimizing a
domain specific language.

What are main advantages and disadvantages of using
LTO in LLVM over a compile time approaches such as
partial evaluation and program specialization.

LTO and partial evaluation are completely orthogonal from each other. One is an optimization technique and the other is a time that optimization can occur. Please explain a bit more about what you are trying to accomplish.
