[LLVMdev] Bug in WritingAnLLVMPass.html

I find a bug in document llvm/docs/WritingAnLLVMPass.html#debughints

Since the PassManager class is in the namespace llvm, we should use command

(gdb) break llvm::PassManager::run

to set breakpoint. Otherwise we get error message:

(gdb) break PassManager::run
Can't find member of namespace, class, struct, or union named "PassManager::run"
Hint: try 'PassManager::run<TAB> or 'PassManager::run<ESC-?>
(Note leading single quote.)

The patch is:
