  /// -opt-bisect-limit command line argument.
  /// By default, bisection is disabled.
  /// Clients should not instantiate this class directly.  All access should go
  /// through LLVMContext.

  /// Checks the bisect limit to determine if the specified pass should run.
  /// This function will immediate return true if bisection is disabled. If the
  /// bisect limit is set to -1, the function will print a message describing
  /// the pass and the bisect number assigned to it and return true.  Otherwise,
  /// the function will print a message with the bisect number assigned to the
  /// pass and indicating whether or not the pass will be run and return true if
  /// the bisect limit has not yet been exceded or false if it has.
  /// Most passes should not call this routine directly.  Instead, it is called
  /// through a helper routine provided by the pass base class.  For instance,
  /// function passes should call FunctionPass::skipFunction().
