minidump: Add ability to attach (breakpad) symbol files to placeholder modules

Summary:
The reason this wasn't working was that ProcessMinidump was creating odd
object-file-less modules, and SymbolFileBreakpad required the module to
have an associated object file because it needed to get its base
address.

This fixes that by introducing a PlaceholderObjectFile to serve as a
dummy object file. The general idea for this is taken from D55142, but
I've reworked it a bit to avoid the need for the PlaceholderModule
class. Now that we have an object file, our modules are sufficiently
similar to regular modules that we can use the regular Module class
almost out of the box -- the only thing I needed to tweak was the
Module::CreateModuleFromObjectFile functon to set the module's FileSpec
in addition to it's architecture. This wasn't needed for ObjectFileJIT
(the other user of CreateModuleFromObjectFile), but it shouldn't hurt it
either, and the change seems like a straightforward extension of this
function.
