Rely on a single DWARF version instead of having two copies

Authored by clayborg on Nov 22 2016, 7:39 PM.



This patch makes AsmPrinter less reliant on DwarfDebug by relying on the DWARF version in the AsmPrinter's MCStreamer's MCContext. This allows us to remove the redundant DWARF version from DwarfDebug. It also lets us change code that used to access the AsmPrinter's DwarfDebug just to get to the DWARF version by changing the DWARF version accessor on AsmPrinter so that it grabs the version from its MCStreamer's MCContext.

Look at all of the code to see how this local DwarfVersion already was being stored into the MCStreamer's MCContext.

(for posterity/others: No idea if AsmPrinter having any knowledge of DwarfDebug/DwarfVersion is the right layering - but this change seems no worse & handy for other DWARF generation code in llvm-dsymutil, unit testing, etc)
