[vta] fix PCH testsuite regression with DW_AT_MIPS_linkage_name

Turns out compilations with PCH get DECL_ASSEMBLER_NAME set earlier
than without it, so the code I added to defer the computation of D_A_N
in dwarf2out behaved differently, adding the DW_AT_M_l_n attribute in
a different order.  Not just that: it also attached the attribute to
the wrong die.  Oops.

Fixed as follows.  This is kind of a kludge; I can't convince myself
it makes sense to investigate why PCH makes it different.  I'm
installing this in the branch.

for  gcc/ChangeLog.vta
from  Alexandre Oliva  <>

	* dwarf2out.c (move_linkage_attr): New.
	(dwarf2out_finish): Add MIPS_linkage_name attribute to the correct
	die, at the right place.
