Subject[PATCH 1/1] stackleak: Register the 'stackleak_cleanup' pass before the 'mach' pass
Date
Currently the 'stackleak_cleanup' pass deleting a CALL insn is executed
after the 'reload' pass. That allows gcc to do some weird optimization in
function prologues and epilogues, which are generated later [1].

Let's avoid that by registering the 'stackleak_cleanup' pass before
the 'mach' pass, which performs the machine dependent code transformations.
It's the moment when the stack frame size is final and function prologues
and epilogues are already generated.
