For mach-o the mach header is in the __TEXT segment, but not true for other file formats. I am ok if we need to rename "GetHeaderAddress()" to something else.

Thanks for pointing that out. I was very surprised that this functionality is not available already. It looks like all/most uses of `GetHeaderAddress` don't really care that there is a header located at that address, but are rather interested in it's property of being a base address for various calculations (the same thing that I am). So I've created D55422 <https://reviews.llvm.org/D55422> to rename it to something more appropriate.
