Tablegen uses copious amounts of global state for uniquing various records.
This was fine under the original vision where tablegen was a tool, and not a
library, but there are various usages of tablegen that want to use it as a library.
One concrete example is that downstream we have a kythe indexer for tablegen
constructs that allows for IDEs to serve go-to-definition/references/and more.
We currently (kind of hackily) keep the tablegen parts in a shared library that
This revision starts to remedy this by globbing all of the static state into a
managed static so that they can at least be unloaded with llvm_shutdown.
A better solution would be to feed in a context variable (much like how
the IR in LLVM/MLIR do), but that is a more invasive change that can come later.
