It is correct as written. Unnamed BB's are "unnamed temporaries" from a
counting perspective. If the first BB is unlabeled, then it becomes %0. The
first instruction then becomes %1, etc.
I swear we mention that somewhere in LangRef (I seem to recall reviewing a
patch mentioning that), but if not, a patch mentioning that would be fine.
