[analyzer] Evaluate all non-checker config options before analysis

In earlier patches regarding AnalyzerOptions, a lot of effort went into
gathering all config options, and changing the interface so that potential
misuse can be eliminited.

Up until this point, AnalyzerOptions only evaluated an option when it was
querried. For example, if we had a "-no-false-positives" flag, AnalyzerOptions
would store an Optional field for it that would be None up until somewhere in
the code until the flag's getter function is called.

However, now that we're confident that we've gathered all configs, we can
evaluate off of them before analysis, so we can emit a error on invalid input
even if that prticular flag will not matter in that particular run of the
analyzer. Another very big benefit of this is that debug.ConfigDumper will now
show the value of all configs every single time.

Also, almost all options related class have a similar interface, so uniformity
is also a benefit.

The implementation for errors on invalid input will be commited shorty.
