[libclang] Allow to suspend a translation unit.

Authored by nik on May 10 2017, 8:09 AM.



A suspended translation unit uses significantly less memory but on the other
side does not support any other calls than clang_reparseTranslationUnit to
resume it or clang_disposeTranslationUnit to dispose it completely.

This helps IDEs to reduce the memory footprint. The data that is freed
by a call to clang_suspendTranslationUnit will be re-generated on the
next (re)parse anyway. Used with a preamble, this allows pretty fast
resumption of the translation unit for further use (compared to disposal of
the translation unit and a parse from scratch).

This makes sense to me.


Put the { on the same line as the decl.

Adapted to the changes that happened in the meanwhile (CINDEX_VERSION_MINOR increased, CleanTemporaryFiles got removed).

I'm new to this review tool. I've addressed the comments and rebased. Does this needs a re-review? Note that this is my first change and I probably do not have any permissions to submit this change.
