[clang-format] Create a python documentation tool to generate a summary of the clang-format status for the whole of the LLVM project
Any change to clang-format is tested with the unit tests, However sometimes the better approach is to run it over a very large fully formatted source tree and then inspect the differences. This seems to be a source of many of the regressions found by @krasimir and by @sylvestre.ledru and @Abpostelnicu who run it over the Mozilla sources, but often these regressions are only found after changes have been committed.
LLVM itself would be a good dog-fooding candidate for similar tests except such a large proportion of the tree is not 100% clang formatted, as such you are never aware if the change comes from a change to clang-format or just because the tree has not been formatted first.
The following review is for a small python tool which scans the whole of the LLVM source tree and counts the number of files which have one or more clang-format violations.
This revision contains the tool and the output from the initial run of the tool and the generated documentation which looks like the following
