Change the dyld notification function that lldb puts a breakpoint in
On Darwin systems, the dynamic linker dyld has an empty function
it calls when binaries are added/removed from the process. lldb puts
a breakpoint on this dyld function to catch the notifications. The
function arguments are used by lldb to tell what is happening.
The linker has a natural representation when the addresses of
binaries being added/removed are in the pointer size of the process.
There is then a second function where the addresses of the binaries
are in a uint64_t array, which the debugger has been using before -
dyld allocates memory for the array, copies the values in to it,
and calls it for lldb's benefit.
This changes to using the native notifier function, with pointer-sized
This is the second time landing this change; this time correct the
size of the image_count argument, and add a fallback if the
notification function "lldb_image_notifier" can't be found.
