[swift-users] DWARF without DSYM

In any case where the .o files are temporary objects which the driver will delete when it's done, it has to generate a dSYM file before it deletes them. But if the .o files belong to the user it can assume it's okay to hold off on generating the dSYM. Same thing happens with the clang driver.
