[cfe-commits] [Patch] Move TargetData from Target to Support/VMCore

I have attached a patch which moves TargetData from Target to Support/VMCore.
The reason why I would like to have this change can be read about in more detail in message [1][2], which in turn is required for [3].

In short, I need the capability of querying, if available, target specific information in the bitcode during verifier and the auto-upgrade mechanism.
Because TargetData is in the target directory, a circular dependency is created when the verifier and auto-upgrade mechanism utilize the information.

Please let me know what you think and if this approach isn't good, possible alternate solutions,
