[obj2yaml] - Rework tool's error reporting logic for ELF target.

Authored by grimar on Jul 12 2019, 6:19 AM.



ELF.h contains two getSymbol methods
which seems to be used only from obj2yaml.

One of these methods calls another, which in turn
contains untested error message which doesn't
provide enough information.

Problem is that after improving only just that message,
obj2yaml will not show it,
("Error reading file: yaml: Invalid data was
encountered while parsing the file" message will be shown instead),
because internal errors handling of tool is based on ErrorOr<> class which
stores a error code and as a result can only show a predefined error string, what
actually isn't very useful.

In this patch, I rework obj2yaml's error reporting system
for ELF targets to use Error Expected<> classes.
Also, I improve the error message produced
by getSymbol for demonstration of the new functionality.

Happy to see more ErrorOr/std::error_code becoming Error/Expected ๐Ÿ˜Š

return E; to avoid clang -Wpessimizing-move (automatic move from lvalues applies here)

We can leverage the ctor of unique_ptr here.

I can't. Otherwise I have the following errors:
(MVSC 2017)

elf2yaml.cpp(164): error C2280: 'llvm::Error::Error(const llvm::Error &)': attempting to reference a deleted function
llvm/Support/Error.h(186): note: see declaration of 'llvm::Error::Error'
llvm/Support/Error.h(186): note: 'llvm::Error::Error(const llvm::Error &)': function was explicitly deleted

When I search for "return std::move(" in LLVMs code, I see many similar places.

Sorry, the -Wpessimizing-move warning is on elf2yaml.cpp:394 (where the return type is Error), not here (where the return type is Expected).
