[Bash-autocompletion] Pass all flags in shell command-line to Clang

Authored by yamaguchi on Oct 26 2017, 1:23 PM.



Previously, we passed "#" to --autocomplete to indicate to enable cc1
flags. For example, when -cc1 or -Xclang was passed to bash, bash
executed clang --autocomplete=#-<flag they want to complete>.

However, this was not a good implementation because it depends -Xclang
and -cc1 parsing to shell. So I changed this to pass all flags shell
has, so that Clang can handle them internally.

I had to change many testcases because API spec changed quite a lot.

Why not a while loop?

I didn't have special reason, I'll change it to while if it fits better.

Made a trivial fix in the testcase

As this will land in clang 7, can you add a note to the release notes that this breaks backwards compatibility for this interface (can be another commit)? Also, we should point out that this is the only API change this interface will have in the foreseeable future.
