Frontend: Simplify ownership model for clang's output streams.

Authored by pcc on Jun 20 2016, 3:16 PM.



This changes the CompilerInstance::createOutputFile function to return
a std::unique_ptr<llvm::raw_ostream>, rather than an llvm::raw_ostream
implicitly owned by the CompilerInstance. This in most cases required that
I move ownership of the output stream to the relevant ASTConsumer.

The motivation for this change is to allow BackendConsumer to be a client
of interfaces such as D20268 which take ownership of the output stream.

Yeah, I think this makes sense on balance, even though it does create a weird situation for the ASTPrinter case, where we don't really want to transfer ownership of the stream.

I think return nullptr; would be clearer here.
