The motivation is similar to https://reviews.llvm.org/D137838#3921828

> That way, you don't have to update oodles of include lines in this patch, and it makes it a bit easier to see what's going on. (You can then update all the include lines in a trivial follow-up if this change goes through, and then remove the forwarding headers in Support, to cut the dependency you want to remove.)

(There is a non-zero probability that the patch may miss something and get reverted. By creating a forwarding header we don't risk causing too much churn to the many files.)
For a large-scaling refactoring

Thank you for verification. Then I think this is good. `layering_check` is the default, so this verifies that we are good.
