[LLVMdev] Reading IR from a std::istream

Sorry for the (almost) repeat question, but I realized that, in my original question, I mistyped "ostream" when I meant "istream".

Previously I had asked how to write then read back IR to/from a file.  The write code looked like:

   LLVMContext ctx;
   SMDiagnostic diag;
   Module *m = ParseIRFile( "my_file", diag, ctx );

However, the code I'm trying to retrofit LLVM IR into passes me just a std::istream&.  How can I read IR from a std::istream?

I figured out how to use raw_os_ostream to adapt a std::ostream to a raw_ostream for writing a module, but there's no obvious way to adapt the code for reading, e.g., no MemoryBuffer that adapts a std::istream (unless I missed it).
