Forwarding this to LLVMDev. I think Mark accidentally hit reply instead of reply all.

I’d like to see per function property metadata. Something like “metadata property A=16”. Think of something like pragma FP Contract. Targets could record anything they want to and query it in their backends. We have a need to add something like this that would inhibit a function being inlined when properties didn’t match. I’m abusing function attributes to get it done at the moment, but would love to have something much more generic.
