Not surprising, CBU is trying to do something entirely different that
what you are.

You may want to look at how the call graph builder works.  It finds all
indirect call sites, and also finds all functions whose address escapes
(this is, may be called indirectly).

Finding indirect calls is actually easy, just check if the Op(0) of the
call (or invoke) instruction !isa<Function>.
