Will do. I am first tracking down a runtime error in the llvm-tblgen binary built using this patch with latest clang+llvm sources (it seems related to ThinLTO since it goes away when I disable some amount of importing, but I wasn't getting this with my fixes on a slightly older revision, so I don't think it is caused by this patch directly)

The same name is used to generate save temps files (so they don't all just use the archive name), so I wanted it to be a legal file name. What if I put in something like ".llvm." in between? This is similar to the naming scheme for symbols used during promotion.
That being said, in working to track down the tblgen failure, I am finding the name generated just from the offset not very useful, so I am planning to grab the SourceFileName out of the Module and include its basename as well.
