[lto] Introduce new function build_type_list_by_dropping.


Attached is a patch to introduce new function

In certain places in the C++ frontend, we drop the first type of the
parameter list and then pass the remaining list to build a new
function type like so:

      from = build_method_type_directly (from,
					 TREE_TYPE (fromfn),
					 TREE_CHAIN (TYPE_ARG_TYPES (fromfn)));

In order to facilitate this type of parameter list construction, the
patch adds a new function that takes an existing parameter list and
returns a new parameter list identical to the existing one with the
first N parameter types dropped.

For simplicity, I am not adding any use of the new function.

Tested on x86_64-pc-linux-gnu.  OK to apply to the LTO branch?
