// This file defines the cost model analysis. It provides a very basic cost
// estimation for LLVM-IR. This analysis uses the services of the codegen
// to approximate the cost of any IR instruction when lowered to machine
// instructions. The cost results are unit-less and the cost number represents
// the throughput of the machine assuming that all loads hit the cache, all
// branches are predicted, etc. The cost numbers can be added in order to
// compare two or more transformation alternatives.
