RFA: Check PCH state of all target options

This patch follows on from:

The second of the above messages said:

    This patch makes the PCH validity routines check every target .opt
    option with a Var(), Mask() or InverseMask() flag.  Once that's done,
    the next step will be to make sure that every target option is treated
    as if it had such a flag, with the options scripts attaching a static
    variable to options that don't otherwise meet the criteria.  We'll
    then be back to where we were before the whole .opt thing started.

This is the patch to do that.  It adds a new opt-functions.awk
function, needs_state_p, to say whether a variable must have a
state variable attached to it.  At present, this function just
returns true for Target options.  If an option doesn't have a
global state (if the new global_state_p function returns false),
the options scripts will add a local variable for it instead.
This works for all types of options: booleans, integers and

Like I said in the quote above, this brings us back to the
pre-.opt situation, in which every target option was checked.
That's my main goal at the moment and I think it completes the
.opt transition.  I went on to say:

    Once _that's_ done, it might be worth adding some sort of flag
    to say whether an option affects PCH or not.  But I'd like to
    discuss that separately.

I still think it's best to do that separately.  I have no specific need
for it myself, so I doubt I'll do it in the short term.  This patch does
make it easier to implement such a flag later though.

Tested by bootstrapping & regression testing on i686-pc-linux-gnu.
Also tested on mips-elf and mipsisa64-elf.  I checked that the PCH
routines now check MIPS options like -mabi= and -mips, which they
didn't before the patch.  OK to install?


	* opt-functions.awk (global_state_p, needs_state_p, static_var): New.
	(var_ref): Take the option's flags as a second parameter.  Check
	* optc-gen.awk: Declare local state variables.  Pass flags to var_ref.
