I'm working on an Pass that needs results from an alias analysis. More precisely, I'd like to use the AliasSetTracker class.
I added AU.addRequired<AliasAnalysis>(); at the right place.
I know the defaut AliasAnalysis does nothing and I currently get everything as "may" aliases. My tool is standalone and does not use opt, so I can't simply do something like opt -globalsmodref-aa -my_pass .
I've seen somewhere that I had to add the following code (for instance) before running my pass :
PassRegistry &Registry = *PassRegistry::getPassRegistry();
but this doesn't solve the problem, I still get everything as "may" aliases :
AliasSet[0xb971940, 6] may alias, Mod/Ref Pointers: (double* %x, 8), (i32* %k, 4), (double* %arrayidx, 8), (double* %arrayidx1, 8), (i32* @global, 4), (i32* getelementptr inbounds (i32* @global, i32 10), 4)
What am I doing wrong ?
