// This pass finds places where memory allocation functions may escape into
// indirect land.  Some transforms are much easier (aka possible) only if free 
// or malloc are not called indirectly.
// Thus find places where the address of memory functions are taken and construct
// bounce functions with direct calls of those functions.
