The logic all seems correct here, but I think we can still do better on the message. The class and protocol cases seem a little underinformative to me, especially since the analyzer doesn't have a note where the availability shows up. So instead of a version kind, how about just passing the decl that has the availability attribute? That way we can say "method", "function", "class 'Foo'", or "protocol 'Foo'".

Also, it would be nice to include the platform name with the version. This code is stolen from DeclBase.cpp, but I don't have a better place for it right now.

  StringRef TargetPlatform = Context.getTargetInfo().getPlatformName();
  StringRef PrettyPlatformName
    = AvailabilityAttr::getPrettyPlatformName(TargetPlatform);
  if (PrettyPlatformName.empty())
    PrettyPlatformName = TargetPlatform;

"Calling method introduced in OS X 10.9 (deployment target is 10.8)"

But other than this polish this is looking very good. Have you tried running it on existing projects?
