Hi Pawel,

Yes - CallbackManagerBuilder is polymorphic*, but it also requires
references to the stack that it is a part of, so it cannot be constructed
outside an OrcLazyJIT instance. That's why createCallbackManagerBuilder is
the way it is: It can't return a CompileCallbackManager value, so instead
it returns a CompileCallbackManager factory functor which the compiler can
run during construction. It indicates failure by returning a null factory
functor, which the user can detect before the try to construct the JIT.

* The overhead of the polymorphism disappears if you can template your
CompileOnDemand layer on a target specific subclass of
CompileCallbackManager, but lli is cross-target, so we can't do that here.
