Probably the right place for the test is somewhere in unittests/IR/. You
can construct whatever IR you need to repro, print in whatever way you
need to create a crash, and then check that the string is sane.
If you're not sure why the check is necessary (i.e., how to repro), then
you should figure that out first. Perhaps some Instruction is being
printed that doesn't belong to a Function, or a Function is being
printed that doesn't belong to a Module?
