[lldb] Extend Python convenience variable table with equivalent APIs

Summary

Add a column to the table of convenience variables with the equivalent API to get to the current debugger, target, process, etc. We often get asked to make convenience variables available outside of the interactive interpreter. After explaining why that's not possible, a common complaint is that it's hard to find out how to get to these variables in a non-interactive context, for example how to get to the current frame when given a thread.. This patch aims to alleviate that by including the APIs to navigate between these instances in the table.
