Remove FlowAliasAnalysis

Review of attachment 8969302 [details] [diff] [review]:

\o/ Thanks for doing this!

Maybe as a follow-up we can merge AliasAnalysisShared back into AliasAnalysis? That will also make it easier to optimize the code for the C++ compiler when everything is in a single AliasAnalysis.cpp file. We can also devirtualize the analyze method :)

Benjamin, this will probably break AWFY because it removes the alias analysis flag from the shell. We should just remove the flow alias analysis from AWFY.

Matthew, we should probably wait for that to avoid unnecessary AWFY downtime.

Oh the fuzzers also want to know about the --ion-aa shell flag removal.

Maybe we could keep it as a no-op if that makes things easier.

Keeping things as a no-op around at least for a while helps bisection of older bugs. Maybe we should keep them around for a while, remove them from all fuzzing configs, then at another point in time, remove a bunch of the no-op flags in one swoop.

Pretty much what :decoder said. :)

Opened bug 1456155; it'd be nice to wait for a few hours before this bug here gets landed (see comment there).

Ok so let's just keep this shell flag as a no-op for now, so we don't break fuzzing.
The option is left behind to ease transition for fuzzers.

I'm going to close this, and open a new bug to remove the option.
