Yes, for the IRBuilder reimplementation is not required. We need to
move the simplification functionality out of the IRBuilder and make
IRBuilder usable to create instructions in HLO.

No, we do not have a spec. This is bad.

For now you can refer to Opcode.cpp to see the full instructions in
HIR and, yes, you will have to look into the JavaByteCodeTranslator to
see how HIR instructions are generated from bytecode instructions.

As for your application form, I am looking into it, sorry for taking
so long.
