This patch series updates the ProcessLinux plugin so that it builds again under

The ProcessLinux plugin has always been incomplete.  This patch series does not
add any new functionality.  

A vital component which the Linux platform has always lacked is a DynamicLoader
plugin.  Previously we worked around this limitation by simply marking the
sections of the executable we were debugging as loaded.  This allowed LLDB to
work with static executables.  However, this was simply a hack and does not work
with the current code base.  This functionality is therefore removed in patch 4
of this series.

The net result is that there is essentially zero functionality under Linux at
this time.
