[Lldb-commits] [Diffusion] rL245090: Move all clang type system DWARF type parsing into ClangASTContext.cpp.

If I'm following this discussion correctly, Greg are you saying that
ClangASTContext could be renamed to DwarfASTContext?  And that for other
types of Debug info we could have PascalASTContext and PdbASTContext?

If that's the case, then it seems there is a lot of code inside of
ClangASTContext (aka DwarfASTContext) which is not specific to DWARF, and
there's no reason that other ASTContext classes shouldn't be able to reuse
