FOR_EACH_BB (bb) is what you're looking for.  That will iterate over the
basic blocks.

Assuming you're running late, you'll then want to walk each insn within
the bb.  So something like this

basic_block bb
    rtx_insn *insn;
    FOR_BB_INSNS (bb, insn)
        /* Do something with INSN.  */

Note that if you're running too late the CFG may have been released, in
which case this code wouldn't do anything.
