As a result of off-list comments, I have fixed a number of 'if('
formatting issues and a couple of line-wrap problems, typedef'd
llvm::SmallVector<llvm::Constant*, 16> to ConstantVector, and removed
the StructGEP helper function which is left over from before that
functionality was added to IRBuilder. I don't want to spam everyone,
so I'll hold off sending an updated patch until I've received more
