Patches 46-47 and 49 seem to be valid regardless the rest of the code,
so I'd consider getting them in independently. They are also R-b'ed.
I've skipped 21 and 28 because I wanted to give a deeper look at the
From the perspective of someone that is living with deref_vars for
just a short time, I like the idea of removing one special
construction (derefs) and rely on instructions instead.
Which made me wonder: was there a special factor that led NIR to start
with the "old-school derefs" in the first place? Other day Curro asked
about one of the "selling points" of NIR being it did not have all
those nodes representing dereferences. I digged up an old comment to
what I think he was referring to
- All the ir_dereference chains blow up the memory usage, and the
constant pointer chasing in the recursive algorithms needed to handle
them is not just cache-unfriendly but "cache-mean."
How does deref_instructions avoid being "cache-mean" as their
"predecessors"? Was the blow up more a result of how the instructions
were structured than the fact it had those dereferences nodes?
