[lldb-dev] lldb_private namespace usage

Anonymous namespace is good for classes that are local to the implementation file. Otherwise we should use a namespace for each plugin. 

We have a few ways we can go with namespaces within plugins:

namespace lldb_plugin {
  namespace process {
    namespace linux {

Or just omit the lldb_plugin and combine the type of plugin "process" with the plug-in name "linux":

namespace process_linux {

Again, only use namespaces for each plug-in if the file has a .h and .cpp.
