[PDB] Split TypeServerSource and extend type index map lifetime

Extending the lifetime of these type index mappings does increase memory
usage (+2% in my case), but it decouples type merging from symbol
merging. This is a pre-requisite for two changes that I have in mind:

  • parallel type merging: speeds up slow type merging
  • defered symbol merging: avoid heap allocating (relocating) all symbols

This eliminates CVIndexMap and moves its data into TpiSource. The maps
are also split into a SmallVector and ArrayRef component, so that the
ipiMap can alias the tpiMap for /Z7 object files, and so that both maps
can simply alias the PDB type server maps for /Zi files.

Splitting TypeServerSource establishes that all input types to be merged
can be identified with two 32-bit indices:

  • The index of the TpiSource object
  • The type index of the record

This is useful, because this information can be stored in a single
64-bit atomic word to enable concurrent hashtable insertion.

One last change is that now all object files with debugChunks get a
TpiSource, even if they have no type info. This avoids some null checks
and special cases.
