One small comment below. In general I agree with the thoughts here, and I think that this is a huge step forward for testing the debug server components.

I also agree with Zachary in principal that it would be nice to come up with lit-based test harnesses for more parts of LLDB, although I'm skeptical about whether or not that is actually the best way to test the debug server pieces. Either way, this is a huge step forward from what we have today, so we should go with it.

The other targets (right now, I guess that would mean freebsd) don't even pretend to support debugging via lldb-server, so we should not fail their build because of that. Check for usages of CMAKE_SYSTEM_NAME to see how to discriminate those.
Darwin pretends to support lldb-server in several places, it would be nice to be able to run these tests on Darwin if they work. One of my big goals for the future of testing on LLDB is to get to the point where the only differences in test coverage when running tests on different hosts is truly platform-specific code. Today we are nowhere near that.

Also, as Pavel pointed out in email, the lldb-server tests are also run against debugserver, so we need to make sure that still works too.
