Make LLVM command-line tools overwrite their output files without -f.
This is conventional command-line tool behavior. -f now just means "enable binary output on terminals". Add a -f option to llvm-extract and llvm-link, for consistency. Remove F_Force from raw_fd_ostream and enable overwriting and truncating by default. Introduce an F_Excl flag to permit users to enable a failure when the file already exists. This flag is currently unused. Update Makefiles and documentation accordingly. git-svn-id: 91177308-0d34-0410-b5e6-96231b3b80d8
