Dear Cmake developers,
as a follow up of this bug

I'm writing to request support for the /Debug:FastLink flag which was
introduced in visual studio 2015 (update 1), and the option to generate
full PDB informations.

Brad King already setup the correct framework in "next" branch to implement
the /Debug:FastLink and with the proposed patch (last topic in the bug) it
works good.

About the "Generate Full PDB informations" , is a new option that can be
used to re-use pdbs generated with the fastlink flag in a different
computer from the one who did the compilation (it may be useful sometimes).
That option seems to doesn't have a (public) command line switch, instead
it relies on an XML property.

When the user requests "Generate Full PDB informations", the generator
should add
in the <Link> section.

What's the best way to set a TARGET or global property which would enable
the switchless XML property in the generator?
