To get the direct callers you would iterate through the users of F,
and check whether it's being used as the callee operand in a CallInst
or InvokeInst. Fortunately there's a CallSite class that abstracts
away many of the differences. So something like:

    for (auto &U : F.getUsers()) {
      if (auto CS = CallSite(U)) {
        if (CS->getCalledFunction() == F)

Also indirect calls.
