[LLVMdev] Question on llc output stream

In llc's GetOutputStream we have this:

    raw_fd_ostream *FDOut = new raw_fd_ostream(OutputFilename.c_str(),
                                               /*Binary=*/true, Force, error);

Why is Binary set true here?  We don't know yet whether this is going to be an
AsmFile or a MachOFile.

Setting Binary=true causes the stream to be unbuffered.  Is this what we want?
