Basically entry->node pointer currently points to cgraph node (not to alias in case of alias
declaration), while in varpool it points to the alias.
When merging, we attempt do varous things trying to keep things intact and we end up with
loosing the alias.
I changed it to have entry->node to be always the node or alias node corresponding to symbol
and made merge_cgrpah_nodes to handle aliases.
I will clean the patch up somehow and once I get past current problem
and ensure it works, I will send it.
