Compile the LLDB tests out-of-tree.

Description

Compile the LLDB tests out-of-tree.

This patch is the result of a discussion on lldb-dev, see
http://lists.llvm.org/pipermail/lldb-dev/2018-January/013111.html for
background.

For each test (should be eventually: each test configuration) a
separate build directory is created and we execute

make VPATH=$srcdir/path/to/test -C $builddir/path/to/test -f $srcdir/path/to/test/Makefile -I $srcdir/path/to/test

In order to make this work all LLDB tests need to be updated to find
the executable in the test build directory, since CWD still points at
the test's source directory, which is a requirement for unittest2.

Although we have done extensive testing, I'm expecting that this first
attempt will break a few bots. Please DO NOT HESITATE TO REVERT this
patch in order to get the bots green again. We will likely have to
iterate on this some more.
