This will allow LinkBatch and other systems to support those interwiki titles in their database queries, so that then finally $title->isKnown() can start working for interwiki links. Previous attempt is at https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/mediawiki/core/+/177960/

I notice it made changes to the following, which have since changed:

Do you have any suggestions about how to proceed, given the intervening changes that have been made to LinkCache.php? Thanks.
