Glad to see clang-format getting some improvements.

Question to the group on that last part.  I think if we have a large body
of code that is just getting a few tweaks to a method, having the patch run
through the formatter could lead to some pretty ugly code.  Imagine a few
lines of a file awkwardly formatted related to the rest of the file.  Since
we're not trying to reformat everything at once (which makes for difficult
code traceability), and given there was a large code base to start with
before LLDB was part of LLVM, I'm not sure we want a blanket statement that
says it must go through clang-format.  (I personally would be fine with
doing whole new functions and other logical blocks of code via clang-format
when inserted into existing code, but I think it probably extreme when
we're talking about new little sections within existing functions).
