lli and the .ir file extension

Hello Andrew,

In r191938, r192021 and r192504 you introduced a new file extension
".ir" to the LLVM project.

Could you document this extension and how it differs from the existing
".ll" format, or otherwise update the tools to use one of the two
existing well-known extensions ".ll" or ".bc"?

Additionally, the "-extra-modules" flag added to lli in r191938 takes a
comma-separated list of filenames(!)

It'd be better to handle this the usual way with something like "-module
fileA.ext -module fileB.ext" following the convention of other commands.
This should just be a matter of removing cl::CommaSeparated from the
cl::opt in lli.cpp.

Background: I've been adding a validator to lit and these two have
needed hacky special-casing so far.
