/// A pipeline for a specific subtarget.
///
/// It emulates an out-of-order execution of instructions. Instructions are
/// fetched from a MCInst sequence managed by an initial 'Fetch' stage.
/// Instructions are firstly fetched, then dispatched to the schedulers, and
/// then executed.
///
/// This class tracks the lifetime of an instruction from the moment where
/// it gets dispatched to the schedulers, to the moment where it finishes
/// executing and register writes are architecturally committed.
/// In particular, it monitors changes in the state of every instruction
/// in flight.
///
/// Instructions are executed in a loop of iterations. The number of iterations
/// is defined by the SourceMgr object, which is managed by the initial stage
/// of the instruction pipeline.
///
/// The Pipeline entry point is method 'run()' which executes cycles in a loop
/// until there are new instructions to dispatch, and not every instruction
/// has been retired.
///
/// Internally, the Pipeline collects statistical information in the form of
/// histograms. For example, it tracks how the dispatch group size changes
/// over time.
