Description

MachineBasicBlock::updateTerminator now requires an explicit layout successor.

Previously, it tried to infer the correct destination block from the
successor list, but this is a rather tricky propspect, given the
existence of successors that occur mid-block, such as invoke, and
potentially in the future, callbr/INLINEASM_BR. (INLINEASM_BR, in
particular would be problematic, because its successor blocks are not
distinct from "normal" successors, as EHPads are.)

Instead, require the caller to pass in the expected fallthrough
successor explicitly. In most callers, the correct block is
immediately clear. But, in MachineBlockPlacement, we do need to record
the original ordering, before starting to reorder blocks.

Unfortunately, the goal of decoupling the behavior of end-of-block
jumps from the successor list has not been fully accomplished in this
patch, as there is currently no other way to determine whether a block
is intended to fall-through, or end as unreachable. Further work is
needed there.
