Thanks so much John! That works :)
Previously I wrote a pass that inherited from CallGraphWrapperPass and used
its getCallGraph() function within runOnModule() which resulted in
segmentation faults for me. Not sure why that happened, perhaps callgraph
wasn't setup by the time runOnModule() was called internally. If you know
why, kindly enlighten me and perhaps document the behavior for the benefit
Your email was the best thing to happen to me all day. I really appreciate
you taking out the time to help.
