I've reverted this patch because it's not correct. lldb-server
definitely can use instruction emulation (see NativeProcessLinux.cpp for
What I was trying to say in the IRC discussion that resulted in this
patch is that lldb-server does not need to use the non-host instruction
emulation (so you definitely don't need to emulate MIPS, if you're
targetting ARM, etc.).
So, what you could do is make the instruction emulation set
target-dependent, similar to how we only include ObjectFileELF on elf
platforms, and not all object file plugins.
