[patch,fortran] PR 16136: ALLOCATABLE dummy arguments


Here's a patch that implements support for ALLOCATABLE dummy
arguments.  It does the following:

* In symbol.c (check_conflict), the check for a ALLOCATABLE/DUMMY
  conflict is made conditional on the selected standard.  Since
  we may (will) want to allow other conflicts in the future for
  standards >= 2003, I did this by creating a new macro conf_std.

* In trans-expr.c (gfc_conv_function_call), treat ALLOCATABLE
  dummy arguments the same way as POINTER dummy arguments, i.e.
  pass the address of the array descriptor.

* In addition to these things, the patch checks for a few
  constraints: The actual argument must be also be ALLOCATABLE
  (using the new function compare_allocatable from interface.c
  (compare_actual_formal)), and the dummy arguments
  mustn't get allocated or deallocated if they are INTENT(IN) (in
  resolve.c (resolve_deallocate_expr, resolve_allocate_expr)).

* And of course I added a few lines to gfortran.texi

Tested on trunk, on Linux/x86.  Ok to commit?
(I assume that this, being a new language feature, is
inappropriate for 4.1)
