Currently, PCH works by creating file and content cache entries for files in
the PCH, which may not actually exist on disk anymore. There is currently a
huge hack in ContentCache::getBuffer which just manufactures file contents if
the file is ever referenced and turns out not to exist. This should be fixed,
by changing ContentCache::getBuffer to return failures properly. Clients could
then give a nice error about an inconsistent PCH state being detected.

This is a large project, as it involves also adding failure support to all of
the APIs which may transitively use getBuffer, and updating all of their
clients. Notable clients include SourceManager::getCharacterData and
