[LLVMdev] [lld] Modeling ELF FileNodes/ControlNodes (Group's) in lld

With the inputGraph now, lld models command line options, input files as
nodes in the InputGraph called InputElements.
In the current approach, each InputElement is converted to a
LinkerInput, which works if all lld deals with individual files.
Dealing with ControlNodes (Groups), have a problem with it, on how to
model that as a LinkerInput.
Joerg/Me were chatting on the IRC about this and we came up with the
- LinkerInput will contain a single file(lld::File), if the node that
its pointing to appears to be a FileNode
- LinkerInput will contain a vector(lld::Group) of files(lld::Files) ,
if the node that its pointing appears to be a Group
The resolver would need to be modified to consider lld::Groups in
addition to lld::File.
Does this sound like the approach we want to take ?
