You're right. The assembly code only has the body of main function and
the external function declaration puts

declare i32 @puts(i8*)

It makes sense, I think, that my derived FunctionPass is not invoked on
external functions when I intend to optimize code such as C. However,
if my code was written in LLVM and I wanted to trigger it on all LLVM
functions including external functions outside the module, how could I
do it?
