The reason the above doesn't work is that the ConstantArray is not a pointer 
type. You cannot use a non pointer type in a getelementptr instruction.

Instead you should create a GlobalVariable initialized with the ConstantArray 
(the name) and pass a ConstantExpr::getPtrPtrFromArrayPtr(<the global 
variable>) to the function call as the name of the function.

I hope this helps,
