[LibTooling] Add retrieval of extended AST-node source to FixIt library

Introduces variants of getText and getSourceRange that extract the source text of an AST node potentially with a trailing token.

Some of the new functions manipulate CharSourceRanges, rather than SourceRanges, because they document and dynamically enforce their type. So, this revision also updates the corresponding existing FixIt functions to manipulate CharSourceRanges. This change is not strictly necessary, but seems like the correct choice, to keep the API self-consistent.

This revision is the first in a series intended to improve the abstractions available to users for writing source-to-source transformations. A full discussion of the end goal can be found on the cfe-dev list with subject "[RFC] Easier source-to-source transformations with clang tooling".
