Hi, all

  Take the discussion thread [1] as an example. Although "-help-hidden"
is not intended to be use by normal folk, I think there should be
somewhere notes "-help-hidden" revealing more options which might be
needed by developers. I thought it will be a good idea to mention the
existence of "-help-hidden" on the web page, but the patch I sent brought
some discussion on llvm-commits [2][3]. Duncan suggested that there are
options should be not-hidden but hidden, and vice versa. And we should
regroup those options into hidden/not-hidden.

  Any idea? Thanks!
