I am trying to evaluate the benefits of precise and expensive alias
analysis for C in terms of the impact it has on register allocation. I
am having a hard time finding papers that describe how people deal
with register allocation for C with its unrestricted use of pointers.
Most of the papers I've seen are FORTRAN oriented and the aliasing
issues there are different from the ones for C.

I would really appreciate any pointers to published papers.
