[CMake] Add special case for processing LLDB_DOTEST_ARGS


[CMake] Add special case for processing LLDB_DOTEST_ARGS

Allow to run the test suite when building LLDB Standalone with Xcode against a provided LLVM build-tree that used a single-configuration generator like Ninja.

So far both test drivers, lit-based check-lldb as well as lldb-dotest, were looking for test dependencies (clang/dsymutil/etc.) in a subdirectory with the configuration name (Debug/Release/etc.). It was implicitly assuming that both, LLDB and the provided LLVM used the same generator. In practice, however, the opposite is quite common: build the dependencies with Ninja and LLDB with Xcode for development*. With this patch it becomes the default.

(* In fact, it turned out that the Xcode<->Xcode variant didn't even build out of the box. It's fixed since D62879)

Once this is sound, I'm planning the following steps:

  • add stage to the lldb-cmake-standalone bot to build and test it
  • update Building LLDB with Xcode section in the docs
  • bring the same mechanism to swift-lldb
  • fade out the manually maintained Xcode project

On macOS build and test like this:

$ git clone https://github.com/llvm/llvm-project.git /path/to/llvm-project

$ cd /path/to/lldb-dev-deps
$ cmake -GNinja -C/path/to/llvm-project/lldb/cmake/caches/Apple-lldb-macOS.cmake -DLLVM_ENABLE_PROJECTS="clang;libcxx;libcxxabi" /path/to/llvm-project/llvm
$ ninja

$ cd /path/to/lldb-dev-xcode
$ cmake -GXcode -C/path/to/llvm-project/lldb/cmake/caches/Apple-lldb-macOS.cmake -DLLDB_BUILD_FRAMEWORK=Off -DLLVM_DIR=/path/to/lldb-dev-deps/lib/cmake/llvm -DClang_DIR=/path/to/lldb-dev-deps/lib/cmake/clang /path/to/llvm-project/lldb
$ xcodebuild -configuration Debug -target check-lldb
$ xcodebuild -configuration Debug -target lldb-dotest
$ ./Debug/bin/lldb-dotest
