Hi Guoping,

This looks great to me.  My main concern is that we are copy-pasting TopologicallySortedCFG and CFGBlockSet yet again.  This is a very bad trend.  Before this patch goes in, I'd like to see that common code refactored.  I'll look into fixing that today.

Inside the test, you specify the command which should be applied on it as well as the expected output. It will get tested when you run the following from the clang build directory (see the Testing section on http://clang.llvm.org/hacking.html):
