proposed fix

bugpoint -find-bugs works by reordering the sequence of passes randomly and
optimizing and executing the result. Once it finds a failure (optz'n crash or
miscompile) it then starts to reduce it.

Unfortunately, what it reduces is the original pass list that the user passed
in, not the shuffled version that actually failed.

This patch modifies bugpoint to remember its ordering. I'm not sure it's the
best fix. Could we remove TempPass entirely and just modify PassesToRun in
place? Why doesn't the code already do that?
