[cdt-dev] Persisting discovered scanner configuration

Hi All,
Now that we are in dawn of having some scanner configuration discovered 
(captured?) from the build output there is a question of persisting this 
information. For standard make projects user specified (the only kind 
available so far) scanner configuration is currently handled by the 

An entity is needed that will persist discovered scanner configuration as 
well as the user specified one. The reason why MakeScannerProvider is not 
a viable choice is that discovered scanner configuration requires more 
information persisted then user specified scanner configuration. So to 
avoid change of format in .cdtproject file I propose adding 
DiscoveredScannerInfoProvider that will persist discovered scanner 
configuration and delegate handling of the user specified part to the 
MakeScannerProvider. In case of disabled scanner config discovery, the 
system would fall back to MakeScannerProvider only.

Hope to get your suggestions and comments in this matter.
