To ease the adoption of LLDB for users coming from GDB, I've added the
command line option `-ex` to the `lldb` binary. It is an alias the the
`--one-line` option which

> Tells the debugger to execute this one-line lldb command after any

This is probably as close as we can get to `gdb`'s `-ex` option which
had this documentation:

> -ex command
>   Execute given GDB command.
