The end goal should be to make LLVM's DWARF classes good enough to be used in LLDB so we don't need to maintain two implementations.

Yes, I definitely agree. It's clear this needs more discussion, so I
don't think it's reasonable if we revert this for now and
I'll also take a look at the interfaces in LLVM to get a better sense
of what should be done. If nobody does this, I'll probably get to the
revert by the end of the day.
