[lldb] Add GetCurrentException APIs to SBThread, add frame recognizer for objc_exception_throw for Obj-C runtimes

This adds new APIs and a command to deal with exceptions (mostly Obj-C exceptions): SBThread and Thread get GetCurrentException API, which returns an SBValue/ValueObjectSP with the current exception for a thread. "Current" means an exception that is currently being thrown, caught or otherwise processed. In this patch, we only know about the exception when in objc_exception_throw, but subsequent patches will expand this (and add GetCurrentExceptionBacktrace, which will return an SBThread/ThreadSP containing a historical thread backtrace retrieved from the exception object. Currently unimplemented, subsequent patches will implement this).

Extracting the exception from objc_exception_throw is implemented by adding a frame recognizer.

This also add a new sub-command "thread exception", which prints the current exception.
