[llvm-dev] IRBuilder input debug

One problem I see with the IR verifier's output is that it does not display
the functon(s) in which the error occurs.

A common error on my part is to reference a value generated in one
function, from a different function.  (This may seem strange, but it can
happen because I cache the LLVM value of evaluating an expression in some
required circumstances, and I need to explicitly purge this cached value if
I know that I need to evaluate an expression in two different contexts.)
When this happens I need to grep the IR to try to figure out which
functions are involved.
