[llvm-readobj] Teach readobj to output .res (WindowsResource).

Authored by mnbvmar on Sep 19 2017, 4:15 PM.



This enables readobj to output Windows resource files (.res). This way, we'll be able to test .res outputs without comparing them with "magic binary files" generated by MS.

Code detecting WindowsResource "magic string" was already in LLVM. That is why I decided to use this detection method to tell .res files from other object types.

This constant needed to be moved up; llvm-readobj expects all binary objects with IDs between ID_StartObjects and ID_EndObjects to inherit from ObjectFile.

Please commit the test_resource.rc file next to the .res file. Actually, it's not clear from this patch if you did git add on the input. Just make sure they both get committed. :)
