// This pass instruments the specified program with counters for edge profiling.
// Edge profiling can give a reasonable approximation of the hot paths through a
// program, and is used for a wide variety of program transformations.
// Note that this implementation is very naive.  We insert a counter for *every*
// edge in the program, instead of using control flow information to prune the
// number of counters inserted.
