[lldb-dev] [LLVMdev] MCJIT debugger registration interface.

A somewhat related (but also orthogonal) use case is parsing the
.eh_frame and .gcc_except_table sections. .eh_frame is similar to a
DWARF .debug_frame except in some small ways, so their parsers could
potentially share code.

Knowing how to parse these sections is valuable for frontends relying
on llvm's invoke-based exception handling, and also for knowing where
llvm has decided to spill callee saved registers.  Having parsers for
these in the llvm tree will be useful.
