[clang] Get rid of "%T" expansions

Authored by kubamracek on Aug 7 2017, 5:15 PM.



The %T lit expansion expands to a common directory shared between all the tests in the same directory, which is unexpected and unintuitive, and more importantly, it's been a source of subtle race conditions and flaky tests. In, it was agreed that it would be best to simply ban %T and only keep %t, which is unique to each test. When a test needs a temporary directory, it can just create one using mkdir %t.

This patch removes %T in clang.

Thanks, most of these looks like potential races between tests waiting to happen.
