[lld] Initial commit for new Mach-O backend

This is the first commit for the new Mach-O backend, designed to roughly
follow the architecture of the existing ELF and COFF backends, and
building off work that @ruiu and @pcc did in a branch a while back. Note
that this is a very stripped-down commit with the bare minimum of
functionality for ease of review. We'll be following up with more diffs

Currently, we're able to generate a simple "Hello World!" executable
that runs on OS X Catalina (and possibly on earlier OS X versions; I
haven't tested them). (This executable can be obtained by compiling
test/MachO/relocations.s.) We're mocking out a few load commands to
achieve this -- for example, we can't load dynamic libraries, but
Catalina requires binaries to be linked against dyld, so we hardcode
the emission of a LC_LOAD_DYLIB command. Other mocked out load
commands include LC_SYMTAB and LC_DYSYMTAB.

This is causing a compile failure on the 32-bit ARM bots:

Could you please investigate this, and either fix (if quick and obvious) or revert?

Would you like to add a mention of this in the lld release notes?

We're still in the early stages of development, so I don't think it makes sense to put them in this round's release notes. We should be in the next one though. Thanks for checking!
