  /// For example, the LibCallInfo may be set up to model the behavior of
  /// standard libm functions.  The location that they may be interested in is
  /// an abstract location that represents errno for the current target.  In
  /// this case, a location for errno is anything such that the predicate
  /// returns true.  On Mac OS X, this predicate would return true if the
  /// pointer is the result of a call to "__error()".
  /// Locations can also be defined in a constant-sensitive way.  For example,
  /// it is possible to define a location that returns true iff it is passed
  /// into the call as a specific argument.  This is useful for modeling things
  /// like "printf", which can store to memory, but only through pointers passed
  /// with a '%n' constraint.
