/// @brief Base class for instruction visitors
/// Instruction visitors are used when you want to perform different actions
/// for different kinds of instructions without having to use lots of casts
/// and a big switch statement (in your code, that is).
/// To define your own visitor, inherit from this class, specifying your
/// new type for the 'SubClass' template parameter, and "override" visitXXX
/// functions in your class. I say "override" because this class is defined
/// in terms of statically resolved overloading, not virtual functions.
/// For example, here is a visitor that counts the number of malloc
/// instructions processed:
///  /// Declare the class.  Note that we derive from InstVisitor instantiated
///  /// with _our new subclasses_ type.
///  ///
///  struct CountMallocVisitor : public InstVisitor<CountMallocVisitor> {
///    unsigned Count;
///    CountMallocVisitor() : Count(0) {}
///    void visitMallocInst(MallocInst &MI) { ++Count; }
///  };
///  And this class would be used like this:
///    CountMallocVistor CMV;
///    CMV.visit(function);
///    NumMallocs = CMV.Count;
/// The defined has 'visit' methods for Instruction, and also for BasicBlock,
/// Function, and Module, which recursively process all contained instructions.
/// Note that if you don't implement visitXXX for some instruction type,
/// the visitXXX method for instruction superclass will be invoked. So
/// if instructions are added in the future, they will be automatically
/// supported, if you handle one of their superclasses.
/// The optional second template argument specifies the type that instruction
/// visitation functions should return. If you specify this, you *MUST* provide
/// an implementation of visitInstruction though!.
/// Note that this class is specifically designed as a template to avoid
/// virtual function call overhead.  Defining and using an InstVisitor is just
/// as efficient as having your own switch statement over the instruction
/// opcode.
