Replace MCTargetOptionsCommandFlags.inc and CommandFlags.inc by runtime registration

MCTargetOptionsCommandFlags.inc and CommandFlags.inc are headers which contain
cl::opt with static storage.
These headers are meant to be incuded by tools to make it easier to parametrize

However, these headers are also included in at least two libraries: lldCommon
and handle-llvm. As a result, when creating DYLIB, clang-cpp holds a reference
to the options, and lldCommon holds another reference. Linking the two in a
single executable, as zig does[0], results in a double registration.

This patch explores an other approach: the .inc files are moved to regular
files, and the registration happens on-demand through static declaration of
options in the constructor of a static object.
