Diff to add lldb::SBDebugger::GetAvailableArchsFromFile

As I haven't found a way to scan available architectures from executables I'd
like to add that to the API. For now the only way to do somehow do that is to
loop over all known archs and try to create the SBTarget. Depending on its
success we mark the arch as valid or not. As you can guess this is very slow
and can be made mauch better as lldb already has all the code needed to get
this information without loading the full target. 

The public API for this could be added to SBDebugger:
static lldb::SBStringList lldb::SBDebugger::GetAvailableArchsFromFile(const
char* filename);

I have attached a patch implementing this feature.
