// This small program provides an example of how to build quickly a small module
// with function Fibonacci and execute it with the JIT.
// The goal of this snippet is to create in the memory the LLVM module
// consisting of one function as follow:
// int fib(int x) {
// if(x<=2) return 1;
// return fib(x-1)+fib(x-2);
// }
// Once we have this, we compile the module via JIT, then execute the `fib'
// function and return result to a driver, i.e. to a "host program".
