/// probabilities of each "edge" in the function's CFG where such an edge is
/// defined by a pair (PredBlock and an index in the successors). The
/// probability of an edge from one block is always relative to the
/// probabilities of other edges from the block. The probabilites of all edges
/// from a block sum to exactly one (100%).
/// We use a pair (PredBlock and an index in the successors) to uniquely
/// identify an edge, since we can have multiple edges from Src to Dst.
/// As an example, we can have a switch which jumps to Dst with value 0 and
/// value 10.
